TMFFS: Wasting Eggs
Fact: most women spend about $150 - $200 a year on disposable tampons and pads. More than 170,000 tampon applicators were collected along US coastal areas between 1998 and 1999. What wasteful creatures.
Girl 1: You have a better way to handle this, Ray?...Reusable tampons doesn't seem feasible...
My Brother: Not to mention. You waste an egg every time you bleed out.
Girl 2: Gross ^^^
Girl 3: LMAO! When you come up with a better solution, let us know!
Lauren at Hipstercrite actually wrote a post all about vaginas & one of the products mentioned, that
I'd never before heard of was the mooncup. Which I'm not suggesting anyone use because it seems weird...but, for the record, eco-friendly (if semi-disturbing) menstrual cycle products ARE available out there.
Knowledge is power.
