WARNING: This blog post is about lady stuff. I know we have a few blokes that hang around, so look away now!! Actually, no, don’t – because I am sure you have females in your life who you care about. So, read on and then share the info!
Several years ago, I was advised by a naturopath to switch to organic cotton tampons. Not only because of how heavily sprayed cotton is, but because tampons can contain viscose rayon and polypropylene. Not to mention that GM products and bleach that may be used! This wasn’t something I had ever really thought about to be honest!
Did you know that women go through around 12 000 tampons in a lifetime? That’s an awful lot of cotton and an awful lot of chemicals! I know when I switched to organic it was just one less thing to worry about. Sure, they were a few extra dollars and I had to source them from the health food store, but I was happy that I was cutting down toxins in my body!
You can buy 100% Australian certified organic tampons online, in bulk, at an affordable price and with free postage. Genius. I don’t have to worry about running out and I save money. You can also find them in retail stores too, if you prefer!
I bought a twelve month supply on-line and it was delivered within a couple of days. I am so impressed with the quality and my greenie side is happy that they are biodegradable. I am such a fan I even joined the TOM Facebook page and told Aimee (the boss) how much I loved what she was doing! Aimee kindly sent me some more to try out and offered to give away some TOM organic tampons to one of YOU!

Even Lola Berry (who I love) is raving about TOM :
“I’m a huge fan of T.O.M tampons, they’re certified organic cotton and there are no nasties added, which means they’re way kinder to our body, and a great healthy alternative. When i talk to people about food and healthy eating i tell people to go for the most natural and least processed option, the same goes for tampons. For the healthiest option I recommend T.O.M. Plus, T.O.M is a local company, which means we’re helping to support our local guys whilst cutting down on our carbon footprint! It’s a win-win!
