When it comes to period products, there are a lot of things that need to change. A lot. So, we made a list with the help of the people of Twitter
They are too expensive. Period products should be free, because nobody chose to have their period. These products are essential, and nobody should be denied essential products and services because of money.
The pads should be longer, because constantly having to wake up at night to check for stains is not fun for anyone. Whoever is in charge should please make pads longer.
A lot of people don’t have access to all the many different kinds of period products available. There are so many different lifestyles, and there are products that can accommodate most of them. Imagine swimmers not having access to tampons?
Pads do not have sizes. Pads need to have an option for people that are plus sized. Not the nonsense with the wings that do not wrap around fully, but actual bigger sized pads that will cover the underwear properly.
Pads are meant to have adhesive that sticks the pads to the underwear. Small activity and the pad has rolled, shifted, and twisted. Make the adhesive stronger and shifting pads might be a thing of the past.
One question, why? Why does blood have to smell like flowers? A lot of people are too sensitive for the kind of fragrance a lot of these products have. The fragrance needs to be taken away.
7) Environmental friendliness
Plastic is bad for the environment, and a lot of tampons come with plastic applicators. Not only that, but lots of pads are not biodegradable and just cause more harm to our environment. Climate change is already causing us too many problems and the companies must do better, but capitalism must capitalism.
8) The itch
Whatever causes pads to give rashes and make the thigh area itch needs to go. Whatever chemical or component that is there should simply not be there anymore.
