Millions of girls around the world will miss school each month because of their periods. Because they don't have sanitary supplies, because they don't understand what is happening to them, or because they are taught that it means they are unclean and dirty. It doesn't have to be this way.
I think about what I put in and on my body all the time, as I am sure you do as well. But it took me a while to come to terms with the fact that I needed to change the products I use every month. To make the change, you will need to think outside of the box (the tampon box) and take a leap of faith! I did.
