30 Days to Zero Waste (Day 13: Reusable Menstrual Products)

Zero Waste Menstrual Products

Spread the Sustainable Gospel!

Zero Waste Challenge – Reusable Menstrual Products | Periods are wasteful, stressful, uncomfortable, and expensive. A woman will use nearly 11,000 tampons or pads in her lifetime. That’s about 62,415 lbs of garbage going into the landfill every year in the United States from us. On top of this, the products are made and soaked in chemicals that I don’t really want near or in my lady bits. Bleached cotton? No thanks. I swear my life changed when I found the menstrual cup. Best. Thing. Ever! I’m not going to go into details about how amazing they are since that will be a whole post in itself in the future, but let me tell you, they are amazing! Look these babies up. A few of my favorites are below:




Menstrual cups not 100% for you? That’s ok! Try reusable cotton pads like these from LunaPads or you can also make your own!

  1. I've been using the Keeper cup since I was 18 (5 years). It is the best thing! I was never very good about remembering to change tampons (luckily i never got tss)

    Not only is it good for the environment, its good for your wallet! Buying tampons/pads every month really adds up!

  2. I love my lunette cup, and i would definitely recommend you try it. I have used mine sence I was 12 and loved using it ever sense. It is also so much better for you and for the earth. I have also not bought and reusable or disposable products sense I have bought my cup.

  3. I just started using the silicone cup only to find that I am allergic. Do you recommend anything else?

  4. Women saving $$$s is not to be scoffed at, seriously! Reduce the pink tax majorly. I’ve used the diva for around a decade, about to test the tulip with emptying valve. Reusable, easy to wash pads for heavy nights. Road tripping, I hand wash and put into a wet bag until I can launder.
