Disposable towels, wipes, tampons... It's not always easy to limit your waste and your ecological impact when you have your period. However, it is totally possible to radically change your habits in order to consume better and, above all, take care of yourself during this period. Thanks to several accessories and products, it is now possible to have a 100% zero waste period.

Finally, if you want to limit your impact to 100%, you can try the practice of free instinctive flow. The principle? Control your body and listen to it so you know when your period is coming.
