30+ Easy Eco Friendly Swaps to Make in 2020
Figuring out how to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle may seem overwhelming at first. Fortunately, there’s a whole new industry centered around sustainability and being environmentally responsible.
Consider using organic cotton tampons or pads
Now more than ever, people are making small changes to minimize their waste. But the question is, where do you start?
To help begin your journey to becoming more eco-friendly, we’ve gathered easy, eco-friendly swaps that you can implement this year.
97% of period products in the market are not sustainable or eco-friendly. They contain toxins, chemicals, and do not biodegrade.
If you are looking for an easy way to be more eco-friendly, then people with periods should consider comfortable and soft 100% certified organic cotton, tampons or pads, or a form-fitting cup.
Half the population gets periods for half our lives, and in our lifetime, each woman uses enough synthetic, chemical-based plastic products to scale the Golden Gate bridge multiple times. One box of pads has the same amount of plastic as four plastic grocery bags.
"We say no plastic bags in supermarkets, no plastic straws in restaurants, and no plastic in our bodies."
Because Oi products are made from 100% certified organic cotton, with no chemicals, dyes or synthetics, these products will biodegrade within five years in the right environment. Our packaging is also earth-friendly and made with vegetable-based inks and biodegradable packaging.
