Traditional disposable sanitary products such as tampons and pads contain a surprising amount of plastic and can only be used once before they must be disposed of. It’s estimated that 1 pack of sanitary pads have as much plastic as 5 plastic bags (Naturacare, 2019). Reusable products may be more expensive initially. However, they will last for many uses, making them cheaper in the long run. The longer the lifespan of your reusable product, the less waste you will create and the more money you will save!
