Earlier this month Andrea Donsky of NaturallySavvy.com shared an investigative report, Conventional Feminine Hygiene Products: A Women’s Issue With Toxic Implications. With it she posted a video (see below) that is spreading online like wild “fire!”
In this video you will see what happens when she sets fire to two different brands of sanitary pads (Always & Natracare). One burns rapidly, which could be a sign of petrochemicals and plastics, while the other one hardly burns. Can you guess which brand is which?
NaturallySavvy.com believes women deserve to know what goes onto and into their bodies every single month, and so do we!! If you agree, we have 3 activities that you can participate in to help show your support.
