Disposable menstrual products have a huge impact.
Roughly 20 billion pads, tampons and applicators are sent to North American landfills annually. Each menstruating person in North America will throw away an estimated 16,800 disposable pads or tampons in their lifetime; products that require hundreds of years to biodegrade.
Imagine the difference we could make if we chose to ditch the disposables.
Reusable menstrual products are eco-friendly, money-saving, healthy alternatives to disposable pads and tampons. Tens of thousands have already made the choice to use Lunapads washable menstrual pads and The DivaCup for their periods. Thanks to Lunapads customers, over 1 million disposable pads and tampons are now being diverted from landfills monthly.
