The FDA classifies tampons as medical devices, and because of this, companies are not required to label the ingredients in them. Unfortunately, the average tampon is not as natural as it may seem... tampons are often made with synthetic fiber blends that are treated with harmful bleaches, chemicals, and dyes that go inside your body for over 50,000 hours throughout a woman's life! That's a really long time to not know what's in these products!
Why organic is better:
Cotton is one of the greatest materials for tampons because it has long fibers, breathability, and high absorbancy. Hoever, cotton is one of the most highly sprayed crops in the entire world. 85% of commercial cotton is sprayed with pesticides that contain glyphosate, a known carcinogen. Organic cotton is free of the pesticides that commercial cotton is sprayed with regularly. It's also free of bleach and chlorine for the healthiest period available!
In 38 out of 50 states, tampons and pads are taxed as luxury items, or non-necessary goods. As every woman knows, these products are far from unnecessary! Repealing the tax on a state level is just one step in a larger policy agenda to increase government assistance for these essential items, require ingredient labeling and testing on menstrual product ingredients, and provide tampons, pads, and liners in schools, prisons, hospitals, and service providers across the country.
How woman are effected by these issues:
Women deserve to know what's in their bodies. Women deserve access to healthy period products, and they deserve the help they need to be able to make tampons and items like them more affordable. Women across the economic spectrum deserve to know what they're putting into their bodies every month. Women who are having a hard time making ends meet deserve all of the help they can get so they aren't sacrificing their health or productivity or ability to provide for themselves and their families to afford tampons, pads, and liners.
