Richard commented on Affordable sanitary napkins

Ruby Cup is a similar product. They donate one cup to a woman in Africa for each one purchased; they are based out of Europe. I helped arrange a marketing study for this organization. It seemed like a environmentally friendly product, though concerns to me are that the Ruby Cup/Moon cup require clean water, and education (how to keep the cup sanitary, so it does not cause more problems than it solves). A product that is both inexpensive, disposable yet biodegradable seems like a safer long term/user friendly/intuitive solution.
