Tamponification By Seventh Generation

LAist relies on your reader support, not paywalls.
Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

Seventh Generation is the nation's leading brand of non-toxic and environmentally safe household products. Named for the Iroquois belief that "In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations," they have a number of causes they support and a cool new way to give back online.

They are making an effort to provide women's homeless shelters with tampons. It comes as no surprise, but certainly something I never thought of before, that there is a huge expense incurred each month at these shelters due to a certain monthly visitor. Government agencies generally assist with toilet paper, diapers and clothing - but thanks Uncle Sam - not "feminine needs."

By making a virtual donation on their Tamponification website and clicking here, Seventh Generation will send a pack of organic cotton tampons or chlorine-free pads to a shelter in your state.
