Tampon Company Delivers Body-Safe Tampons to Your Door
Periods aren’t convenient, but that doesn’t mean your tampons can’t be. If you’re tired of putting tampons in your body that are bleached with chlorine or made with non-biodegradable materials, Lola is a tampon company that delivers 100 percent cotton, 100 percent biodegradable tampons with BPA-free applicators right to your door.
The company lets you choose how many of each tampon type (light, regular, super) will go in your box (pun intended), and the frequency of your shipments. So if you’re regular, you can have regular deliveries of tampons when you need them—so you never need to make an emergency Walgreens run again. Pretty cool.
As an aside, if you’re tired of using cotton tampons all together—don’t be afraid to try the Diva Cup or Ruby Cup. They’re silicone cups that you insert into the vagina to collect your menstrual blood. They’re reusable and have even less of an environmental impact than cotton tampons do.
You could also go padless and get the new period panties/underwear, and just wash them.
