Warning: Mark Coulton, owner of Eco Yarn, is under investigation for fraud. Here is an excerpt from the Sydney Morning Herald:
" 2001, [Coulton] was found guilty of obtaining money by deception. Coulton had claimed his 100 per cent organic cotton tampons, marketed under the brand Eco Yarn, were from California when they were really inferior tampons from Hungary."

The Keeper

The Keeper is a natural gum rubber cup that is worn internally, holding (instead of absorbing) monthly flow. In other words, you wear it kind of like a diaphram and it collects your menstural blood. When it's full you take it out, dump it and put it in again. Lots of women email me raving about the Keeper.
