Most commercial sanitary pads are also made with single-use plastics, which will not decompose, and will create an even bigger plastic waste problem. While Ruby is convinced that using WUKA will always be more cost-effective in the long-term, and make an enormous impact on plastic waste reduction, it is understandable that short-term cost is a big issue in the country.

Plastic free Essentials #BacktoSchool

School supply shopping can be one of the best times of the year. There’s something about starting with new pens, fresh notepads, and shiny new folders that can make you feel productive and ready to face the new challenges ahead. But when you’re browsing the aisles of your local shop, you may notice that so many things are just made of plastic. From bags to water bottles to lunch boxes to pens, plastic is everywhere. And eventually, it may wind up in a landfill or in our oceans. That’s why we wanted to explore ways you can be plastic-free this school year.

Irregular periods: Why they happen and how to treat them.

Irregular periods: Why they happen and how to treat them.

Having a few irregular periods, like 2 or 3 in a year, are usually nothing to worry about. However, if it occurs more frequently, you should see your doctor to determine the causative factor. You want to be sure that it is not an ovulation disorder or a health condition. Whenever you have irregular periods, especially a missed period, the first thing you should do is to rule out pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test if you have had heterosexual intercourse in the past month. If the test comes out negative, then you should examine what other factors could be causing it. Examine your lifestyle, stress levels, and any recent weight gain or loss. Then talk to your doctor to discuss how best to get your menstrual cycle back on track.
