I paid Whole Foods a visit, on a lunch break, recently when I stumbled upon this buy in the health and beauty section. You all that have followed me for a while now know that I'm enthusiastic about living an eco-chic lifestyle as much as I can. Since using the Diva Cup (click on it to be taken to my review), I no longer use tampons or commercial pads but on the last day of my cycle, I don't always want to use the cup so it's nice to use these eco friendly pads by Natra Care.
Landfills are polluted with tons of our personal, feminine care products that are made up of plastics and other synthetic materials that do not break down easily. You know that stuff ends up in bodies of water, right? Water, that while is does go through a rigorous purification process, is water we drink every day, right? Disgusting, right? I'm just keeping it real with you all. Lol. Natra Care's feminine products are made with natural materials, over 90% biodegradeable (and compostable under appropriate conditions) and are free of plastic, chlorine and perfume. Even all the packaging is biodegradeable and/or recycleable.
So are they good? I only use them on the last day of my cycle, which is my lightest day, so absorbency and things like that are not a major concern for me anymore. I still wanted to share with you all because it could be a great natural alternative for many.
Give it a try. They come in all absorbencies and with or without wings. Natra Care also makes natural and biodegradeable tampons and other feminine care products. It also doesn't hurt that a woman created them. Who knows us and what we need better than another woman?
