Most of us agree that periods aren’t our favorite thing. There’s so much misery that comes with your period, but there’s also an opportunity to do something that’s pretty cool. You can save help save the planet with your period! Swap your usual period supplies with all natural eco-friendly period essentials, and you can really make a difference. Alternative period supplies are way easier to come by than they used to be, and we turned to Etsy for handcrafted products.
