Powerful Environmental Reasons to Switch to Eco Conscious Period Products!

Women around the world have grown accustomed to the conventional ways of managing their menstrual cycle: pads and tampons.  However, in recent years there has been a new wave of modern, discrete and eco-friendly menstrual product solutions. Your Moon Time is particularly forward thinking in this area. Unlike the single-use period products you find in the local supermarket, you don’t throw away a pair of Your Moon Time period underwear, reusable pad or menstrual cup after using them.

And lets assume that menopause occurs at the age of 45. This makes 30+ years or 380-400 periods (excluding some months of one or two pregnancies).
