If you’re trying to reduce the amount of waste you produce while on your period or just want to find a reliable alternative to disposable tampons and pads, reusable menstrual care products are the way to go. If you’re a tampon user, your first thought may be to switch to a menstrual cup — and that’s a fantastic option — but there are plenty of other reliable, eco-friendly reusable period products out there, too. There are internal reusable menstrual options (such as cups or menstrual discs), as well as external options (such as period underwear, workout shorts, and washable pads).
If you’re looking for some recommendations, ahead are eight reusable period products that’ll help you make your menstrual-care routine more sustainable. Another bonus? They’ll probably save you some money in the long run, too.
