How to reduce your plastic use

As we become more aware of how our use of plastic affects the environment, companies have started offering common products without plastic

While making the switch can be more difficult in rural areas, in larger cities, conscientious consumers can find ways to reduce their use of single-use plastic. For example, as we wrote about in our review of the Sirona menstrual cup, women can use reusable menstrual cups or period underwear instead of pads and tampons, which can be a hassle to dispose of and often appear as litter. Additional products to consider include shampoo, conditioner, and body soap in bars instead of disposable bottles and, instead of cleansers or soaps with microbeads, using products with natural exfoliants, which can include ground oats, sugar, coffee grounds, and finely ground nut shells. In this infographic, you can learn about nine products you can use in order to be more environmentally conscious.

  4. We all know about the environmental impact of using plastics, but their use is so much ingrained in our lives. While I am trying to reduce the use of plastics in daily life, it is definitely not quite easy! Menstrual cups are definitely a good way to reduce waste for us women.
