    I find this whole U by Kotex concept entirely freakish and disturbing. Do we women really need designer pads and tampons? Certainly we are not that shallow.

    Then there are the sustainability issues of over-packaging, non-recycled paper content, gratuitous use of plastic applications (ladies, it’s okay for your fingers to touch your very own body) and potential pesticide residue exposure from conventionally-grown cotton.

    Instead of using the unsustainable feminine products, use a menstrual cup. I have been a happy user for two+ years, and saved over $100 so far.
