  1. Organic Tampons 

 

This option has been up for debate more recently. Considering that some tampons are made from cotton that have undergone pesticide treatments, and have been linked to an increased diagnosis of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), there are some people who believe that 100% organic tampons are the way to go. However, seeing as these products are fairly new, no one really knows if they are really the better option. You can try them out yourself at your local target if you want to join the debate!
