The cost of menstrual protections, disposable or reusable?

Disposable menstrual products are as of now, the most commonly used type of menstrual protection. They are typically made of plastic, rayon, and other synthetic materials. Reusable menstrual products are a more sustainable alternative to disposable products. They are typically made of natural materials, such as cotton, and can be reused for many years.

The cost of disposable menstrual products varies depending on the type of product, the brand, and the retailer. In general, disposable menstrual products are relatively inexpensive to purchase. However, they must be replaced every month, which can add up over time. The cost of reusable menstrual products is higher upfront than the cost of disposable products. However, reusable products can be used for many years, which saves money in the long run.

You should also consider the environmental cost of disposable menstrual products. They are made of non-biodegradable materials, which means they can take hundreds of years to decompose. Reusable menstrual products on the other hand have a smaller environmental impact as they are mostly made of biodegradable materials such as cotton, which means they will decompose over time. Reusable menstrual products are a more economical and environmentally friendly option than disposable menstrual products. Why not giving a try to period panties?
