Twelve Days of In Other Words Shopping – Alternative Menstruation Products

December 20, 2013

Welcome to the shopping season everyone! To celebrate this occasion we joyfully introduce the “Twelve Days of In Other Words Shopping.”

On the 4th day of Shopping my ecofeminist friends gave to me…

Four Alternative Menstruation Products

Moon Pads™ are washable pads made from premium cotton flannelette. Comfortable, healthy, a great cost-saver, and reusable make these a fantastic alternative to disposable pads.

Moon Cups & The Keeper are reusable menstrual cups, around two inches long and made from soft medical grade silicone (Moon Cup) or rubber (The Keeper). It is worn internally a lot lower than a tampon but, while tampons and pads absorb menstrual fluid, the Mooncup collects it. This means it doesn’t cause dryness or irritation, and also that it collects far more (three times as much as a tampon!). Because the Mooncup is reusable, you only need one so it saves you money and helps the environment, too.

You can find these and more at In Other Words. We’re located at 14 NE Killingsworth St in Portland, OR, and are open Tuesday-Saturday, noon-7 PM.
