Have A Sustainably Sound Budget

If providing a healthier mind & body hasn’t already persuaded you to jump into the reusable ring, adding a little more punch to your pocketbook might be all the confidence you need to knock out those costly conventional products from your life altogether. I’m sure we can all agree that being a woman is far from cheap and menstruating is expensive! But let’s take a moment to see just how costly it REALLY is.

Don’t worry. We’ll do the math for you.

Say you pay roughly $7 for a box of 36 individual tampons, which typically get used & replaced every 6 hours. Using 4 tampons a day in a 5-day menstrual cycle will have you going through at least 20 tampons per period. Since the average woman menstruates from the age of 13 to 51 for a total of 456 cycles during that timeframe, that comes out to at least 9,120 tampons. This means you can expect to pay in your lifetime at least $1,773.33 on tampons alone, without considering inflation. And then when you consider the cost of panty liners and replacing ruined panties due to leakage, the grand total for such a lady luxury can end up costing you over $5000 worth of disposable period products!

When you consider how reusable alternatives, such as Organic Cotton Menstrual Pads or silicone Menstrual Cups, are made to last as long as 10 years with proper care while keeping thousands of toxic waste from filling up our landfills for centuries, you won’t need to whip out your TI-95 to calculate that going with green periods is far and beyond the more ecological AND economical choice.

Create A Sustainably Sound Environment

When it comes to keeping our environment clean and healthy, your period isn’t a just personal issue. Each year, up to 20 billion feminine hygiene products are dumped into landfills in just North America alone, leeching toxic chemicals into our soil and groundwater for as long as centuries. Studies have also shown that the processing of low-density polyethylene and thermoplastic (LDPE’s), synthetic plastics used to make tampon applicators and menstrual pads, creates the largest manmade impact on global warming.

As women, we can do much better than this. The power to change the world is right between our collective legs! Unlike single-use items, eco-friendly alternatives like the Organic Cotton Menstrual Pads or silicone Menstrual Cups found at the Zero Waste Store are each sustainably made & designed to be used and reused for up to 10 years. Ditch the wasteful feminine hygiene habits that hurt the planet, and start practicing a more minimalist method of managing your monthlies with zero waste periods that will help heal Mama Earth.
