This is a fairly typical response when first introduced to the idea of a menstrual cup. I’ll admit, it isn’t pretty. No one likes to imagine a reusable vaginal insert that collects the menstrual fluid. But let’s be real – vaginal bleeding isn’t (and never will be) pretty – so let’s start by dropping the shame around menstruation. And once we’ve gotten over that, we can address something that’s a lot less pretty: the amount of waste that half the population is producing in relation to their monthly cycle.

Do you have a cell phone ? I think at this point, EVERYONE has a cell phone which they keep attached to them. One of the many great features of a cell phone is the notepad; you can use the notepad as a shopping list. If you have not started using your notepad as a shopping list, START TODAY !!! Most people are attached to their cell phones so when you think of something you need you can easily write it down.

September is here, which means it is time for students of all ages to return to school. I am sure everyone is familiar with those classic “Back to School” advertisements from stores like Walmart or Staples, promoting great deals on supplies or the cool new gadget to help with your studies. I know when I was younger, my favourite part of the upcoming school year was shopping for new outfits or finding a binder or notebook with neat designs to impress my classmates with on the first day.

We all have that one person in our family (there are a few in mine). You see them approaching at a gathering, solo cup in hand, wearing a smile that says, “I’m looking to instigate.” Your stomach tightens as you brace yourself for the sarcastic question you know is coming: “So, how’s all your tree hugging going?”
