Want an Awesome Travel Period Solution While Helping the Environment at the Same Time?
Did you know every year 7 billion plastic tampon applicators end up in landfills?
Do you ever wonder what your tampon is actually made of? And what you're keeping inside your body during the days and hours of your period every month?
Have you ever been in a foreign country, suddenly got your period during dinner and didn't know how to ask for feminine hygiene products in the local language? (like I did when I was dining in the meatpacking district of Copenhagen)
Want to be a better responsible traveler and good to your body at the same time?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions (or want to avoid answering yes), then you've come to the right place. Let me introduce you to THINX.
Founded in 2011, THINX is an American company that makes period underwear as a substitute to your current feminine hygiene products. Yes, it's true! Three friends got together to solve some real life issues women face every month. But what's also super cool about their invention, is that this product is a rad option for lady travelers as well. Buying THINX not only helps to reduce waste, but is a tremendous travel hack.
I learned about THINX from a beautiful spirit of a new friend who swore by her THINX. She had a variety of the underwear and said she never buys tampons or pads anymore! She was 100% dependent on the product. With all of her show and tell and enthusiasm I decided to give them a try right away. At the time there weren't as many variations as there are today, so I purchased the hiphugger, their most popular option, which holds up to 2 tampons worth. I thought it was a safe start to testing them out. And I wasn't disappointed at all!
I too, no longer buy feminine hygiene products any more. I packed my THINX on my trip around world and I wear them in place of tampons, making it so much easier for me to deal with what I have to carry when I travel and any surprises. Even better, I'm not increasing waste in countries that I step foot in, especially in developing countries. What I'm now excited for, are the number of new products that have been released while I was away, making things like exercise, style and fit more fun and supportive.
I'm not going to explain the details of how it works or show you what they look like on because the THINX website does a fantastic job of all of it. And if you still aren't comfortable wearing just THINX, they also sell organic tampons! Another option to help you do both good to your body and mother nature wherever you are.
