Tampons are down there in the rankings of “Things I enjoy buying” with sports bras and antibacterial hand soap. I know it’s not a big deal to buy them; I know next time I want them I will very much wish I had thought ahead; I just hate doing it. And what that means is that I do the “fffffff I’m out of tampons” dance on the regular (you know exactly the one I’m talking about).
File my new discovery under “How did this not occur to me (or everyone) before?”
My Box Shop – the brainchild of Kendra Gelner and Marissa Ribisi, both mothers of tween girls – is a delivery service that means you never do that dance again…but beyond that, it offers a product free from the toxins (chemicals, bleach, pesticide residues, and synthetic fragrances) found in many drugstore brands.
Which sounds like a very good thing, considering where this product goes.

P.S. If you’re wondering how I found out about this product – and this is not a sponsored post: I met one of the founders, Kendra, while she was out on a walk one morning. We got to talking about what she did, and I loved everything about the idea, so I asked her if she’d be up for having me write about it. And it just so happened that I had scheduled a photo shoot for later that day, so I asked her if I could take some pics of her product, as well.
Organic product, organic meet-cute. I love it.
