Sustainability is an important factor to consider as a consumer, especially when it comes to products that we need and use regularly. And with disposability becoming increasingly unpopular, we think it is time to reconsider our current habits as menstruating women. According to Knowaste, disposal of single use menstrual products, such as tampons, pads and applicators, generates 200,000 tonnes of waste per year, meaning it is crucial we look to more sustainable options. Luckily, there are plenty of incredible brands who are paving the way to planet-friendly periods without sacrificing functionality, hygiene or comfort. Here are our top products for more environmentally sound cycles - it’s what Mother Nature would have wanted.
The Saalt Cup is a reusable soft silicone cup worn internally like a tampon, but collects—rather than absorbs—your period. It stays in place by creating a seal between the cup and your vaginal wall. Once your cup is filled, you simply empty, rinse, and reinsert the cup for another 12 hours of protection. The Duo Pack contains one small Saalt cup, one regular Saalt cup and two carry bags.
