Stop the Monsanto Invasion.
If your #tampons aren't #organic, they are probably #GMO cotton with pesticides and chemicals. No thanks Monsanto, pass. Organic only please! Share this with the women you love, reasons to switch or go eco-friendly with your cycle:
♀ 94% of US cotton is genetically modified, do you really want Monsanto in there?
♀ Pesticides such as Roundup are in conventional and GMO cotton which end up inside of your vagina.
♀ Most use chlorine BLEACH to whiten which can create toxic DIOXIN as a byproduct.
♀ If imported, is it Bt cotton with pesticides grown into every cell farmed by India's GMO Bt cotton farmers devastated by Monsanto, committing suicide at an average rate of 1 every 30 minutes? You don't know, feminine hygiene product ingredients have no ingredient labeling requirements.
♀ Most American conventional tampons are made from rayon, vicose, and cellulose wood fluff pulp and what American cotton is used, is 94% GMO.
♀ The average American woman uses up to 18,600 tampons in her life.
♀ Your skin is your largest and thinnest organ and it absorbs things directly into your blood stream.
♀ Pads aren't better in makeup. One researcher estimates each conventional pad contains the equivalent of approx. 4 plastic bags, do you want BPA on your most delicate skin?
♀ If you are not already using organic or natural feminine hygiene products, please switch to organic cotton in all of your bath products! Cotton balls, q-tips, start buying organic clothes only to the best of your ability, think about where the cotton is coming from.
♀ Here are some alternative organic and natural brands you can feel better about placing inside or near your one of your most precious body parts:
Seventh Generation Chlorine Free
Organic Cotton Tampons
Glad Rags Organic Pads
Organyc 100% Organic Cotton Tampons
UK: Moon Times Organic Cloths
*Diva Cup and Lunette have a lighter eco footprint than organic cotton and are reusable non-toxic cups that are placed within.
