Let's talk serious business, ladies.
Periods can be a drag. We're moody, bloated and dare I not say it, "bloody." It's gross, uncomfortable and a total cluster-fuck. But tis' is life and we as women have to deal. The most uncomfortable thing about this process is having limited to no access to non-toxic feminine care products. In today's world, for every toxic, chemically based product, there is someone out there saving our asses and creating a non-toxic, more environmentally friendly version. And need I say, It's probably a woman.
A while ago I started to discover the uncomfortable feeling of wearing and using traditional pads and tampons. It was driving me crazy and I wasn't really up for trying any alternative solutions outside of tampons or pads. So I started to research and stumbled upon feminine products by "L."
Certified by the FDA, L. was founded by Talia Frenkel, a photojournalist who worked for the Red Cross and United Nations. Designed by a team of women in San Francisco, L. products are 100% organic and aren't produced with ingredients you can't pronounce. Shortly after I began using L, I noticed a change in how comforting and clean I felt compared to using traditional pads and tampons. They're soft and comforting products that give you that "barely there" feeling. I am in love and have been recruiting the masses to hop on this organic tampon/pad wave. The pads, tampons, and liners come in a variety of sizes/styles.
The amazing thing is, L isn't just made by us, it's made for us and gives back to us. When you buy an L. product, one is donated to a female entrepreneur in a developing country. After documenting humanitarian crisis around the world, Founder, Talia's coverage of women's lack of access to reproductive rights and the effects of HIV/AIDS on young girls inspired her into action. In many countries, girls miss school because of lack of access to sanitary pads. L. matches each sale of a tampon, pad or liner with a donation of an organic cotton pad to a girl in a developing country. Today, L. works with over 3,000 female entrepreneurs and has donated millions of health products to date.
Need I tell you more? With L, you're not only choosing a healthier alternative to protect your body and what you put in it/on it, but you're helping women and young girls globally receive the resources they need to receive basic health products. Shop L at Target or through their website thisisl.com.
