I use disposable pads, both for incontinence and for my period(Occasionally now lol).  Imagining my impact on the environment, I’ve decided to make my own pads and tampons.  If anyone is looking for a really good story of how one women affects the environment (And what she can do about it), I highly recommend WEN’s article, “Seeing Red:  Sanitary Protection & The Environment.” I have updated my favorite pages to include links to make your own feminine products.
