Thinx: Change the World, One Pair At a Time

Hi friends:

I found an underwear that could replace your tampons. Yes, you read that correctly. The company is called, Thinx and they are on a mission to change the way the world feels about menstruation. So you may be wondering how this is possible? There’s four layers of protection in these panties: one with continual moisture-wicking technology, another that contains fibers coated with silver to make it resistant to bacteria and stains, a third that’s able to collect up to six teaspoons of fluid (depending on the style you buy), and a last leak resistant layer. I tested the hip hugger style and loved it-they kept me free from leaks all day. It was such a relief to not have to wear a tampon all day.

Not only is this product innovative and cool but also philanthropic. Thinx gives women the tools to become entrepreneurs and young girls the resources to help them not miss school on days when they have their period. For every pair you buy, seven reusable menstrual AFRIpads are made available to keep adolescent women in school in Uganda. So awesome! 🙂 Read more here.

Do yourself a favor and buy a pair…you will thank me later. 🙂
