Flo Biodegradable Feminine Care is a new fun brand of sanitary pads, tampons and liners, all made from eco-friendly bamboo. The world’s fastest growing grass (industrial panda is not taken from panda habitats) is naturally anti-bacterial and biodegradable, so ideal for feminine care. Conventional sanitary pads and liners tend to be made from (bleached) rayon that breaks off fibres near areas where it’s not good. They also tend to be uncomfortable (due to plastic backing) and sold in plastic.
Don’t flush these after use (you’ll block your drains). But you can safely dispose of them after use, knowing that they are not going to leak toxic chemicals. They are also better for your health, and more comfortable in hot weather. The tampons are available with or without applicators, in pretty bio-wrap.
Read Your Moontime Magic to learn how not to become enslaved to the big corporate plastic industry. Includes affirmations and aromatherapy tips (keep essential oils away from pets, especially if cats sleep on your bed).
Don’t support companies that donate plastic feminine care to Africa, as they don’t have means to dispose of them. Instead give to Afripads, a social enterprise that makes biodegradable pads, providing jobs for local men and women.
