Your Happy Period + Giveaway

March 01, 2017

I have a special post for all you ladies out there. Let's talk periods. I've already briefly shared my love for menstrual cups in this post. After the post and talking with some ladies, I got myself a new cup, the Fleurcup, and I'm even more in love with the whole concept. No waste, super comfortable and way cheaper that buying tampons or pads every month. I only have positive things to say about it! If you have any questions feel free to ask me. But before I dived into menstrual cups I was using tampons. More specifically, 100% organic cotton tampons. I do believe that menstrual cups are the way to go, but 100% organic cotton tampons are close second (and reusable cloth pads). If you are using tampons or pads I highly urge you to look into the organic cotton options, free from synthetic materials like rayon (highly absorbent, restricting air flow and trapping heat and dampness, which can promote yeast and bacteria growth) and chemicals. There is a whole lot of nasties in conventional feminine products, like dioxine, a by-product from the bleaching using chlorine, phthalates, plasticising chemicals like BPA, regular cotton crops are also heavily sprayed with pesticides and fertilisers. Amm yuck?!! Even if you don't have any problems using conventional tampons or pads, I'd still highly recommend using organic cotton products. You can easily found them in health stores and even in some drugstores. Not only are they better for you, they are also better for the environment because they are biodegradable. Just think of all the plastic pads and tampons out there. And baby diapers, but that's a concern for another blog post. To make a transition from regular to organic cotton tampons even smoother, I have a wonderful giveaway for you ladies, featuring a new-to-me company Your Happy Period
Your Happy Period is a subscription box* with 100% GOTS certified organic cotton tampons, produced and packed in Europe. The box is delivered to your mailbox every month in time for your period. You choose your selection of 18 tampons in sizes Mini, Regular and Super. You can mix them however you like. You’ll also receive a BPA-free tampon case made out of recycled plastic. Sounds pretty perfect doesn't it? Well the Your Happy Period is even more perfect and inspiring than you can imagine. For every month you use this subscription box, a girl in need will be provided with a month’s supply of sanitary protection through their partnership with GlobalGiving. Yas! The reason why they donate sanitary protection is because over 100 million girls worldwide can’t manage their periods due to lack of sanitary protection. It leads to missed school classes and drop-outs. If a girl could finish school (gender equality for the win!), her chance of getting a job would increase and with that also the opportunity to support themselves and their family. They will also be safer and child marriages and births will decrease. They will also get confidence to do what ever they want!

The donated money is not only used to supply girls with sanitary protection but in some projects also health education. Instead of tampons, they donate pads, which is the most common type of sanitary protection that girls and women use in large parts of the world. That is because of both religious and health reasons.
Based on all this, don't you think it's worth to support this company? You know what they say - by becoming a Yoppie (a member of Your Happy Period) you will empower women and fight for gender equality. Oh yeah! I always love to support brands that give back and this one certainly does, so why not introduce a few of you to the brand as well?
So a giveaway it is!

There will be 3 winners and each will receive 2 boxes with tampons of their own choosing + a tampon case. For each box, Your Happy Period will also make a donation that will go to the girls in need. <3 The giveaway will run on my Instagram account so make sure to visit me there so you can enter.

The rules are:

1. Follow @yourhappyperiod and @smallbitsofloveliness on Instagram.
2. Like the photo I will post of the giveaway.
3. Tag two friends.

Your Happy Period currently only ships within Europe, so you can only enter if you live in Europe. This giveaway will be open for one week, till the 8th of March.

Wishing you the best of luck!

With love,

Jana xx
