Your Plastic Period

It's so common for girls as young at 8 years old to get their period. That means they are using disposable menstrual products for what, 12-18 years before they (for the most part) start thinking about having babies.
So along with all the other toxic crap out there that messes with fertility, they have to worry that their menstrual products may be causing it as well? 😐
Did you know the first disposable period products are still out there somewhere? It is estimated that they take 500-800 YEARS to break down. And when they break down they are still just as bad for the environment. They break down into Microplastics and go on causing mayhem for eternity.
Not to mention the other things they are made with. Paint stripper anyone? Bleach? What about that sickeningly sweet scent? "Synthetic fragrances can be made from a cocktail of up to 3,900 chemicals, according to the Chem Fatale report. These can contain chemicals which are carcinogens, allergens, irritants and endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs).
EDCs in particular are a worry as they are linked, not only to breast cancer and infertility, but to many other reproductive diseases and disorders such as endometriosis."
Need to level up your period game?
