I've noticed a shortage of certain brands of tampons lately, is it affecting you?

Women who like the non-applicator style of tampon for environmental reasons may want to consider using the Diva cup instead.

Don't sweat the small stuff!

Thanks for reminding us that this is another option.

I use the organic tampons that are like the OB style.

Kristen, where do you find these? I've not been able to find anything similar to OB style tampons and I'm not ready to try cups at this point.

Any health store/market. We have Whole Foods, Mother's Market and Sprouts that carry them. I'm lucky to have these kinds of stores living in southern California! One brand is Seventh Generation and the other is NatraCare. I'm sure they are online too. I read an article the other day that Target is going to carry an organic brand. Hopefully the major retailers will start offering them soon.

Thanks Kristen. I'll have to check out the Whole Foods Market down the street, I need to get some multi-vitamins anyway. :)
