Why Every College Woman Should Consider Menstrual Cups

Note: This blog post was written by my 19 year old daughter Olivia, who will be a sophomore this fall in college.

As all women can attest to, periods are simply an annoyance. Buy feminine hygiene products, check your pad/tampon status regularly, don’t wear white pants, the list goes on. Throughout my menstruating days I have used a variety of products: panty liners, pads, tampons and even toilet paper in a pinch.

When I was younger my mom tried to encourage me to use reusable products like period underwear and reusable pads, but I was personally bothered about having wetness between my legs. Recently, I have been using reusable menstrual cups. Don’t get me wrong, during the first few times I found them terribly annoying and not worth the trouble, but after getting to know the product and how to use it properly, I’ve fallen in love. (if that’s even possible with a period product)

Being in college, I normally don’t have extra money to spend. This meant relying on my
mother to send me care packages every month or so with the tampons I needed. This worked out fine for a while, until there was one month where I ran out. I was forced to use the menstrual cup that I had only used a handful of times, and I was not too happy about it. But, after a cycle of using it, I questioned why I had ever done anything different. Where ever I was, I never needed to ask anyone for an extra tampon. I simply rinsed my cup and reused it. I spent no extra money that week and was thankful because I could buy a comforting Chipotle bowl with the extra cash. Anywhere, anytime, I could easily clean it and continue on with my studies. As an environmentalist, I became increasingly aware during this time as to how many tampons and panty liners I had been throwing out during that special time of the month, but with this product it was none. If I forgot I was wearing it (which i could do because it’s completely unnoticeable) I didn’t feel worried or bad because I knew that it was ok to use for around 12 hours.

There are no harsh bleaches or other chemicals entering my body which isn’t something you normally consider, but think about it- cotton isn’t naturally perfectly white… those chemicals (used to bleach cotton) diffuse into our bloodstream and carry throughout our body. When I tell my friends they all look at me in disgust, but when I tell them how convenient it all is they rethink I know I’ve converted at least one of them. There is no reason that I can think of not to use reusable products honestly.

Call me crazy, but being able to go on vacation with only one cup, not spending any extra money when aunt flow comes around, and not worrying about how my waste affects the landfills leads to a stress free period, and really, in college, is there really any more that I can ask for?

Fewer bathroom trips, less discomfort, less money, less waste, no embarrassment, better health, and less stress made the learning process all worth it.

The Benefits of Eco-Friendly Wipes

If you have ever had kids, you know how messy times can get with little ones-it’s quite impressive how quickly they manage to do it! Wipes are a part of everyday life from helping with diaper changes, to just cleaning faces after meals. However, many wipes are filled with synthetic materials and chemicals, some of which can be harmful to the delicate skin of a baby or children. Traditional wipes also take a long time to biodegrade, leaving their mark on the environment. The best wipes are those that are both environmentally and baby-friendly.

Fortunately, there are many options for concerned parents, here are some of the three best ones that I have come across:

  1. WaterWipes

If you want the most natural wipe possible, these are your best bet. They are only made with two ingredients-two! One of those is simply water, the other is grapefruit seed extract. Citrus fruits have natural antibacterial and cleaning properties, so the extract is the only thing needed for an effective baby wipe. If your baby is extra-sensitive, these wipes are perfect for you.

  1. Imse Vimse Natural Washable Wipes

Tired of throwing away baby wipes? These wipes are made from 100% cotton flannel and are super environmentally friendly. Simply wetting them with water or a gentle cleanser is perfect for all sorts of messes. Not to mention that the initial price of these wipes is great, and they pay for themselves as they can last a long time with proper care. These wipes are better for at home use than on the road as the luxury of washing isn’t available in the car, but they are excellent at cleaning without having to hurt the environment. These wipes pair wonderfully with La Petite Creme– a cleanser, a protective balm, and diaper rash soother all-in-one that is safe to use while cloth diapering!

  1. Joonya Eco Wipes

These wipes offer an all-round take on natural wipes. The wipes are made from 100% viscose, plant-based biodegradable fibers so that they are completely biodegradable and also strong. They contain all-natural ingredients like essential oils and plant extracts-mainly aloe vera, chamomile, and jojoba oil. These wipes are probably the strongest wipes on the market and don’t tear like some traditional wipes.

With the current trend of parents wanting the most healthy things for baby and environment, products like baby wipes have seen many new changes and types. These are some of the best that I have come across in my mothering travels, I plan on using them with my next (and definitely last!) child coming soon. All of them are great, try them to find out what your favorite is!
