2. Flushing money down the drain
Are you still flushing money down the toilet each month? The average woman spends thousands of dollars on tampons in their lifetime and the tampon tax does not help with that. Many states still consider tampons a luxury and charge state tax for tampons. I know plenty of things I can do with my money than literally flush it down the toilet each month. It is time we invested in more sustainable options (CoBARE underwear coming soon… )
3. Generate a lot of environmental waste
How many planets do we have to live on? One. On average, a woman may use up to 11,000 tampons in her lifetime. Whether with or without an applicator, tampons take centuries to decompose. The world is in your hands.
