Womb Moon Menstrual Sponge
For the super earthy eco ladies who want to move even beyond a cup, sea sponges are worth a try. Once inserted, sea sponges are soft and comfortable, a healthier alternative to tampons that date back to ancient Egypt. Sea sponges are completely natural and renewable and will compost readily. They also contain beneficial minerals, such as iodine, and enzymes that are anti-bacterial and discourage odors. Harvesting sea sponges is also very low impact as the root sponge is never taken, only small pieces of the sponge that break off and actually stimulate more growth.
Tips—you can shape the sponge as needed with scissors. Sea sponges do not like to be boiled, but must be cleaned before and after your period by soaking in 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar mixed into 1 cup of warm water. Depending on your flow, you will need to rinse your sponge every 3 - 4 hours in cold water.
