Women use many many feminine hygiene products over their lifetime. Even though it's not something we talk a lot about, it IS important to our health to be aware of what type of products we are using.
From Seventh Generation:
"Unbelievably, no federal law exists which requires disclosure of ingredients in tampons and pads. This means women are left in the dark about what ingredients they are putting on some of the most sensitive and absorptive tissue on their body.
That’s why Women's Voices for the Earth and Seventh Generation are happy to report that Representative Grace Meng has introduced the Menstrual Products Right to Know Act. And on May 23, women from across the country gathered on Capitol Hill to send Congress a message: It’s time to care about feminine care. Period."
Let's raise raising awareness of this issue!! We need to know what is in the products we use!
