Last week a large box arrived, it was collected by my husband who inquired to its contents.
“It’s my tampons!” I exclaimed
He gave me a suspicious look…
“It’s not cheap crap I’ve bought on credit that we don’t need I promise… seriously look its tampons!” as I emptied them all out on the lounge floor.
I had been waiting for this box and I was not disappointed. I’d been contacted by Veeda a few weeks ago, they’d come across my Homeless Period mission and requested if they could contribute some products to the cause. I had already heard about their product because there have been some Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) stories about recently and these guys are the leading brand for 100% natural, cotton tampons.
Did you know that some conventional tampons contain bleached cotton, rayon and plastics? No nor did I. Bit scary isn’t it? And whats even more scary is that some manufacturers don’t even declare the make up of their products because they are not required to by law. With Veeda you know all the ingredients are natural and hypoallergenic. They are also bio-degradable.
I’ll be taking the box over to my local shelter soon, which I’m sure will be gratefully received. Thanks again Veeda!
