The environmentally-friendly company Seventh Generation is sponsoring an excellent new program. From http://www.tampontification.com/donate.php:

Women’s shelters in the U.S. go through thousands of tampons and pads monthly, and, while agencies generally assist with everyday necessities such as toilet paper, diapers, and clothing, this most basic need is often overlooked. You and I may take our monthly trips down the feminine care aisle for granted, but, for women in shelters, a box of tampons is five dollars they can’t spare. Here’s some good news: you can help us contribute to rectifying this situation by making a virtual donation below! For each virtual donation, Seventh Generation will send a pack of organic cotton tampons or chlorine-free pads to a shelter in your state.


So click here to donate tampons or pads to a women's shelter near you. Click early, and click often. And tell your friends.

I like those kinds of programs. I've donated to the local shelter here and there.
