#FLOWWITHEASE: WHY REUSABLE PERIOD CARE MAKES MORE CENTS?


WHY REUSABLE PERIOD CARE IS BETTER? ANSWER IS IN THE NUMBERS:

Disposable period products may seem affordable at first glance, but the reality is, they add-up over time. 

As per Singapore Environment Council, average women who menstruate spend between $300 and $500 on disposable pads and tampons.

Guess how much would it cost if people who menstruate spent on reusable menstrual care products?

While the initial cost of a menstrual cup or period underwear might seem higher, they are much cheaper in the long run.

HERE’S HOW:

ECO-FRIENDLY PERIOD PRODUCTS ARE LONG-LASTING 

Menstrual cups can last for up to 10 years with proper care, while period underwear typically lasts for 2-4 years. Compare that to the constant need to buy disposable products each month! In the long run, reusable options save you significant money. On average menstrual cup costs around S$ 40-50 while period underwear can be in the range S$ 25-50.

ECO-FRIENDLY MENSTRUAL CARE HELPS IN REDUCING WASTE

According to a 2022 report by Singapore Environment Agency, disposable menstrual products create a massive environmental burden. Making the switch to reusable options drastically reduces your environmental footprint.
Eco-friendly period care products, such as period cups, discs, underwear, swimwear, and reusable pads, can save you money. These products are way more cost-effective than traditional period products. The chart below from Recyclopaedia by ACT Government shows some cost comparison as well.

HERE'S HOW TO MAKE THE SWITCH TO ECO-FRIENDLY PERIOD CARE AND SAVE MONEY:

Do your research: Explore different reusable options like menstrual cups, period underwear, and washable cloth pads. Consider factors like comfort, lifestyle, and budget. Many brands also offer starter kits for first time buyers.
Start small: Not sure if you'll love a menstrual cup? Try period underwear for a more familiar feel. You can also alternate between reusable and disposable options until you find your perfect fit.
Embrace the savings: Factor in the long-term cost savings of reusable products. Consider it as an investment in your and environmental health. Invest in a high-quality menstrual cup or period underwear.

Remember, going eco-friendly doesn't have to break the bank!
"Many women are hesitant to switch to reusable period products due to cost concerns. However, the long-term savings and environmental benefits make them a worthwhile investment for your health and the planet."
