Okay gentlemen, if you're reading this, I suggest you turn back now. I'm fairly certain you don't want to know about us gal's monthly friend. If you do, all the power to ya, either way, that's what this note is about. you've been warned!
Okay ladies, here's the thing. I've become an advocate for re-usable female hygiene products. It would do our earth some good if you gave it a try.
Back in High School, my friend Marie, was the first one to try these things. I wanted to because I knew how good it was for the environment, but at the time I chickened out because I worried they wouldn't work as well. But the longer I used common methods of feminine hygiene, the worse I felt for what I was doing to the environment.
Did you know that, the average woman creates about TWO TRANSPORT TRUCKLOADS FULL OF FEMININE PRODUCT WASTE??!
think about that. that's a lot for one gal, now think about how many women DO that. The facts are mind boggling.
That's why I'm Urging you to do the switch. Because we can't just set up camp somewhere else once we've destroyed the earth.
When I started talking to friends about switching to cloth pads, I mentioned to my friend Christine, my preference for tampons. That's when she told me about her Diva cup. A reusable menstrual cup, that can last past a year! I got mine...I'd honestly NEVER switch back to disposables again! So comfy, and really reliable. you can wear one for 10 hours before emptying!
And there is no risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome. Unlike tampons, the cup can't absorb your harmful bacteria and send it back to you, it's made of silicone. And it's approved by health Canada.
I'm begging you not to be afraid of change. If we don't start to change together, there won't be a world for our children to grow up in.
ps. here are some websites that will help ya look into it.

Bright Blessings and Luck to all! )O(
