How to green your period

How to green your period

Tired of throwing money down the drain buying disposable menstrual products every month? Worried about the chemicals that are being leached into your body? Concerned about your impact on the environment? 

Try reusable menstrual products like a menstrual cup or cloth pads!

Our favorite menstrual cup here at Growing Up is the Lunette. It’s your user-friendly, safe, reusable, and eco-logical alternative to pads and tampons. Lunette collects fluids rather than absorbing them, keeping your superior interior naturally lubricated and healthy. You empty it rather than change it, wash it, and reuse it. You never ‘run out of Lunette’ (like tampons) because it runs around with you: in a pretty, convenient pouch (in case you’re early) or in you, during your cycle. It is made of medical grade silicone and pays for itself in less than a year. You can wear it throughout any sports activity and many times all day without emptying it!

Questions? Reservations? Check out the very informative website- putacupinit.com. Here you can find a quiz and comparison chart to help you choose the right cup for you as well as videos and tips on inserting and care and anything else you might want to know!

Cloth pads are also a great reusable option for that time of the month. There are lots of great brands and makers out there. A few of my favorites are MotherMoonPads and Talulah Bean on Etsy. If you are crafty, there are also tutorials out there that make them pretty simple to make yourself. 

There are still other alternatives like a menstrual sponge, which are naturally occurring sea sponges that are inserted to absorb menstrual flow, or the new technology of period panties, such as Thinx. We have heard great things about both! Whatever method speaks to you, switching to reusables is definitely worth looking into.

Many people find after switching to reusable menstrual products that they have less cramping, lighter flow, and even a shorter period! Reason enough to make the switch!
