    History.... Disposable tampons and pads were not patented until the 1930s. In Europe most women still used homemade washable products until the 1940s. So we all survived until this time with homemade washable very sanitary products...well since women started wearing sanitary products. It's not unhygienic and it's not gross you are just use to the convenance of purchasing them.

    If you know how to wash things it's just as clean and there won't be millions out in landfills or the ocean.

    Why cant we send these women disposal pads instead??? Dude we do food collections etc and we cant send these women the necessary sanitary napkins??? We are so fortunate in this country, I tell ya! Count your blessings!
