Ditch single-use sanitary items in favour of TOM Organic’s eco-friendly and reusable period products

Periods! Okay, now that we've given the gents who accidentally clicked on this story enough time to backtrack hastily, let's talk.

Thankfully, there's an eco-friendly alternative. Ladies, say hello to TOM Organic's reusable period cup and underwear. more
