Are There Greener Solutions to Feminine Products?

Good Question

Pin it button big

Q: What can women do about the use of feminine products? Are there any greener solutions to the feminine products available now? I hate using so many feminine products during my period, but I don't see any other sanitary and comfortable solution. Feminine products are the ultimate throw-away, one-time use items, and I would prefer it that way I just wish there were alternatives that were greener, such as feminine products made from post-consumer content. Do such things exist?
