So what'srepparttar answer forrepparttar 131083 ecologically-conscious menstruating woman? Reusable menstrual products, of course. Instead of a tampon, women can userepparttar 131084 earth-friendly, reusable menstrual cup, called The Keeper, made from gentle rubber, similar torepparttar 131085 rubber that is used to make baby bottle nipples. Besides being easy onrepparttar 131086 environment, The Keeper is easy onrepparttar 131087 pocketbook; one cup should last up to 10 years. And since it is made of rubber, rather than of an absorbent fibrous material, such as rayon, it can be worn up to 12 hours before being emptied. On heavy days, you may want to change it more often.
