Earth hour and how organic cotton benefits the environment

The popularity of all things organic continues to grow, from food, textiles, cleaning products to cosmetics, and in our case, tampons. But whilst emphasizing the benefits to the individual consumer’s health and wellbeing, it’s easy to forget the dramatic impact that buying organic can also have on the environment. As we celebrate WWF’s Earth Hour  www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour – where individuals turn off the light for an hour as a symbolic show of support for action on climate change – we’d like…

Pads and Tampons a Priority for Girls’ Education

Is it our imagination or is true that finally periods, pads and tampons, are being talked about and written about everywhere? It’s about time but the conversation needs to include responses from corporations and big brands that supply pads and tampons. It’s time surely for the industry to become more transparent and responsible. ‘access to sanitary products is as much a human right as my right to having a Big Mac” Twitter troll We set…

Period Taboo: In Africa, sanitary pads are considered a privilege not a necessity

I first encountered the true impact of period taboo as an adolescent in Africa. I’m a British born African living in London who spent a good chunk of my pubescent years in Sierra Leone.

We enjoyed our holiday so…

Women bleed. It happens. Period. Sure, periods are uncomfortable and messy, but they are also totally natural and impact over half the world’s population. Still, most of us loathe talking about them. Rather than use the P word, we’ve come up with any number of alternative phrases, from “Aunt Flo” to “Surfing the Crimson Wave” to “The Red Wedding” (thank you, Game of Thrones). We hide pads and tampons inside bathroom cupboards and cringe at…

The hormone not only regulates the menstrual cycle and plays a role in sexual desire, it also helps stabilise the endometrium – the inner lining of the uterus. It is thought that most miscarriages are caused by abnormal chromosomes in the baby – the genetic building blocks that guide…

PMS – genes or behaviour?

For the first time, researchers have found cellular evidence and a biological cause for Premenstrual Dysmorphic Disorder (PMDD) – a severe form of PMS.
