As women we're presented with many challenges and obstacle's as we navigate through our forever changing hormones in our fast paced lifestyle that's getting faster by the day.
So I understand your need for disposable sanitary products if only to keep up with life's busy activities, but what is this choice of convenience having on the number one woman of all time, YOU!
The Australian Taxation department has slapped a goods and service tax GST onto all pads, tampons and other feminine sanitary products, as its seen as a 'luxury, non essential product' by the Australian Government. ( Recently the Australian Labour party and the Greens have been pushing for the removal of GST only on disposable products though, and we need it both on disposable & reusable sanitary products.
Personally I believe that fine dining, yachts and French champaign are luxury products!
Information on the materials used to make our sanitary products is limited, because they are labeled as medical devices by the manufacturer. Not sure if the Australian Taxation department has this information on record, as the Australian Government still labels these products as a ‘luxury non essential item’
I'm sure you and every woman out there would like to know what exactly your placing on, around and inside your vaginal walls? Its important to me, so I guess since your reading this, its important to you too. Just like food is labeled, pads and tampons should be too.
All woman using these disposable sanitary products are exposed to harmful toxic chemicals every single month.
Ever wondered why women are living in a world filled with such dis-eases; cervical cancer, cystitis, candida, poor mental health, IBS, thrush and a whole host of other vaginal conditions and the inability to fall pregnant.
Most indigenous cultures didn't have the complications us western women have with conception, mental illness, health issues etc, could the use of disposable sanitary products be the cause?
There is no doubt in a logical thinking mind that the continual use of the chemicals that make up these products that are used month after month will have an impact on health and well-being.
The epidemic of UTI's and thrush alone is enough to question, 'is single use sanitary products really a convenience'? You be the judge.
They all end up in landfill. Single use items will out live you, your family and most probably the great barrier reef. This could be a tragedy if we don't stop these life destroying habits.
Somewhere along the line of human evolution we’ve managed to take one of the most natural & sacred cycles of a woman's life and successfully turned it into one of the biggest causes of destruction.
You've just learn't why you should be switching to reusable sanitary products; the amount of tax your paying for this luxury item, the chemicals used to make them, health risk associated with using them and of course the amount of pollution they are causing in our world.
These things need to change, if you are a woman reading this, or know a woman then forward this onto them, this information needs to be shared throughout the world!
You have the power in your hands to make a change from a toxic life to a life of abundant health and longevity for you, our daughters, wives, fiancees, mothers, grand mothers, sisters aunties, cousins, friends and all the amazing people who benefit from these goddess women.
