When I first heard of Reusable Menstrual Products, commonly known as RUMPs, one of the first things that sprung to mind was stories of women from older generations using pieces of cloth for their periods during their monthly menstrual cycle.
And so I thought, why in the world of disposable convenience would anyone choose anything that they would have to wash and use again? Surely that was going backward? However, the thrifty, wannabe environmentally conscious, minimalist in me took over and I quickly concluded that it might not be such a bad idea after all.
So why choose RUMPs?
