Week 3: Plastic Free Period
This week I am trying out period underpants ... I am on my second day of using my recent @modibodi purchase of period briefs and I am impressed with them so far... I'm going to do a review of them at the end of the week in stories ☝️
For me, I feel this option is a privilege that not everyone has the option to try. I spent $100 on 3 pairs of underpants where I spend no more than $30 a year on single use pads and tampons.
I bought these as an investment with my tax return $$$ and I wouldn't have been able to afford these normally .. so, although I knew that my single use sanitary products were not a good choice for the planet - they were all my budget could afford... .
Non plastic sanitary products are not readily available and are not cheap. Instead, I think we shouldn't be vilifying women for using single use sanitary products, and instead be pushing the makers of single use pads and tampons to rethink their use of plastic in their products... .
And for those of us who are in a privileged position to be able to afford period underwear or other reusable options - we should be considering it... .
Do you use period underwear or another reusable sanitary product? .
Are you joining in the 20 changes in 20weeks ? What ONE change will you make this week for our planet?

Hi! I'm Emma.
I've been a bit stressed lately so I have channelled my stress into creating art... turning negative feelings into positive vibes - it's my art therapy.
I discovered digital art less than a year ago and I love this medium - I love creating in layers and then putting the pieces together. I love the neat lines and being able to rub out my mistakes... I love seeing the thing in my head, become a thing in real life - unlike many of my sewing project ideas! 😂🙈 I am still learning and getting my own groove and style going... I've recently found it and am on a bit of a creative binge right now... creating all the fun and quirky weird shit in my head... .
I hope you are enjoying the new artsy-ness of my page.
It is making me so happy filling my squares with little pieces of me.
And in this square - an actual me. It me - with changing earrings - because... @earringlover_ 😎 and because I can. .
Anyway, hi. Thanks for following along... what should I draw next? Any fun ideas you want to see come to life? .
