Why conventional sanitary wear is bad for you and bad for the planet 🌍
Your vagina is one of the most absorbent and sensitive parts of your body so you want to be very careful about what you place next to it or in it.
Conventional sanitary wear has been found to contain non-organic cotton, plastic, fragrance/perfumes, deodorants, dyes and chlorine bleach. It usually comes wrapped in plastic too and can have plastic applicators.
- Non-organic cotton is farmed using toxic pesticides and insecticides.
- Plastic is a synthetic material that is linked to hormone disruption due to use of chemicals such as BPA.
- The 'absorbent' compounds added to sanitary products have been described as “highly toxic when inhaled or ingested, causing damage to your eyes, skin and lungs.”
Rayon is also found in sanitary products. It is a manmade material from cellulose wood pulp. When rayon is produced and bleached, this process produces dioxins as a by-product. Dioxins are linked to several health concerns including the reproductive health condition, endometriosis. It’s also associated with deforestation as the typical process for dissolving wood pulp for rayon wastes 70% of the tree!
Millions of women and girls across the globe stay at home during their periods because they can’t afford period products. &SISTERS want to be a part of changing that.
They are dedicated to changing the lives of thousands of women around the world and believe that gender should never keep a girl from getting her education. When you educate a girl, you educate a community.
Sisters for sisters - Just £5 a year pays for one girl’s annual period supplies in Africa.
Through the &SISTERS Foundation, they donate 10% of their profits to help support women’s health, education and economic empowerment across the globe.
