It is that time of the month... or should I say the second time of the month? My uterus and I have a complicated relationship. Respect does not go two ways. I have a reasonably civil relationship with a beast that sits in my belly, but that beast does not share such ladylike composure (pun … Continue reading My Fem Floodgate Monologue: ZeroWaste, Cramps and Self-Discovery
Scientific American reports that the United States uses roughly 36.5 billion rolls a year to wipe those pretty bums. This equates to about 15 million trees, 473 trillion gallons of water, and 253,000 gallons of bleach to produce the amount of toilet paper US citizens consume in a single year!
