What is the environmental impact of your period?

Tampons and pads are incredibly environmentally unfriendly, not to mention that there is a risk of TSS (Toxic Shock Syndrome) from tampon use. I the Lunette cup for my monthly cycle. 

There are a lot of different views on menstrual cups out there, people seem to either love them or really not like them at all. My response to this is, try it! You really won't know until you see if it works for you. It took me a couple cycles to get used to mine, and now I wouldn't have it any other way! 

I use cloth pads when i'm at home, and I especially appreciate them during sleep, as I would not want to leave my menstrual cup in over night.
