Did you know the average woman has her period for 40 years and uses between 12,000 - 16,000 tampons in her lifetime?
So let me give you #theRealReal - Your conventional feminine hygiene products are housing some highly toxic chemicals. And because the vaginal walls are highly permeable, the chemicals in your products are making their way into your bloodstream. NOT COOL.
But once again, there are companies that are out to make a positive impact - for the consumer & for the planet. I had the pleasure of interviewing Thyme Sullivan, CEO & Founder of TOP - The Organic Project. Let me tell you, this company is pretty flippin' cool! Not only have they created a high-performing & safe line of tampons & pads, but they are committed to incredible advocacy efforts.
According to TOP's website, "1 in 5 women in the United States suffer from period poverty without consistent access to hygiene products, including girls in schools across the country. Basic health necessities should never be considered a luxury. We want to put our money where our mouth is and use the power of our business to fight for the rights of women everywhere, regardless of their age, ethnicity, religion, or income. Your purchase of TOP products has a direct impact on the communities we live in. For every purchase you make, we donate product to schools, shelters, nonprofits and organizations dedicated to helping women in need. "
