A few weeks ago, I attended my first beekeeper club meeting and I was nervous and excited at the same time. I didn’t know what to expect, but according to my grandfather, All beekeepers are good people.
It’s no secret that pads and tampons are harmful to the environment. If women generally use around 3 to 5 tampons per day, a woman will use about 30 or so tampons per month. That’s 360 tampons a year – one for every single day. So, what can we do about it? You can’t recycle tampons and they take forever to degrade. No one is really sure how long it takes to decompose, but with the population of the world being around 60% female, it doesn’t really matter. Tampons and pads are going to be in landfills forever.
