Indigenous women are pushing back against the feminine hygiene industry which uses shame and embarrassment marketing tactics to enforce narratives regarding menstrual bleeding to perpetuate the use of harmful disposable pads and tampons. The blog highlights that the chemicals in disposable products are toxic to people and the environment. It presents many reusable and healthy options such as menstrual cups and cloth pads, noting also Indigenous use of Cliff Rose, Cattail, and Moss in healthful relationship with the Earth and moon blood. The Indigenous Goddess Gang reports that not only do these products not contain harsh chemicals, they also allow you to track bodily changes, save money, and greatly reduce the waste and pollution associated with disposables.
