Blossom Menstrual Cup. Why is it simply the Better way?
Blossom Menstrual Cup Review
Did you know that an average woman throws away 250 to 300 pounds of tampons, pads and applicators in her lifetime? The great majority of these end up in landfills, or as something the sewage treatment plants must deal with.
Plastic tampon applicators may not biodegrade for several hundred years. Every month, women flush and throw away hundreds of disposable menstrual products and their packaging. Have you ever wondered what happens to all those menstruation products? For the last hundred years, the feminine hygiene industry has told women that when it comes to
menstrual flow products they use, the best approach for ultimate care and comfort is: "out of sight, out of mind".
But disposable tampons and pads are anything but "out of sight". They are visible everywhere in our bathroom garbage cans, our landfills and even washed up along our coastlines.
Most tampons and pads contain surfactants, adhesives and additives. Those are a bunch of stuff you don't want near or inside your body. Most pads contain polyethylene plastic whose production is a pollutant with Traces of dioxin (a known carcinogen) and the synthetic fiber rayon are also found in tampons. Dioxin is a by-product of the bleaching process in the manufacturing of tampons and the synthetic fiber used can leave residue in the vaginal wall, leading to possible risk of infection and overall discomfort.
In landfills, many of these substances can leach into the environment (groundwater, streams and lakes) causing serious pollution and health concerns.
If you add it all up... we get the environmental harm, plus resource waste, plus unnecessary cost, plus women's health compromised equal one serious problem.
