Day #72 (Detox)
How healthy are your tampons and pads?
Yes it’s a personal question and what does this have to do with Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is also about creating a healthy non toxic lifestyle and your personal hygienic products may just be laden end with chemicals.
Regular tampons and pads have usually been bleached and pesticides used in the growing process of cotton.
The types of chemicals found in tampons and pads are those that have been linked to birth defects, hormone disruption, cancer and more.
Pretty scary when you think of the amount of processes and chemicals used on a product which ultimately you can absorb readily due to the sensitive area of the skin and tissue.
Not only are these chemical loaded products are affecting your health but also the health of our environment.
The waste created from this industry is massive and we are currently looking at 1billion pads (only) from Australia and New Zealand alone. The chemicals which then leach into the water ways etc is becoming a real issue.
Choosing non bleach organic tampons and pads are a much better alternative and will help you lessen the chemical load.
It’s time for the feminine to start to nurture herself and her mother- Mother Earth
