Rather than squirming at the check out counter, embarrassing personal items like toilet paper, tampons, and condoms are now available online – and from companies that prioritize your health and safety above all else.
Fortunately, the availability of these types of goods online has taken the embarrassment out of buying your must-have products. With a few taps on the keyboard and clicks of the mouse, you can order a plethora of everyday personal items—and spare yourself from blushing sheepishly in front of a store clerk.
Another huge perk of shopping for these types of products online is that you get access to a wider selection—including items that are much better for the environment. When purchasing Earth-friendly goods is as easy as a click of a button, you can make a positive impact simply by being selective with your personal purchases.
Safe, Chemical-Free Condoms
Buying condoms can be awkward, even when compared to buying other personal items. Most people don't want strangers at the checkout counter knowing anything about their sex life. Luckily, Maude provides 100% latex condoms on its online store so you can buy your condoms discreetly.
Maude makes its FDA approved condoms without harmful chemicals. The company's condoms are fragrance-free and don't contain spermicide, which some people can have an adverse reaction to.
Maude's website provides detailed instructions about how to use their condoms, as well.
Organic Feminine Care Products
Brands that make products like tampons, liners, pads, and condoms aren't required to disclose the ingredients in their products to the public. However, LOLA believes in transparency, so the company proudly displays the ingredients online and on their goods.

According to LOLA, women typically use an average of 10,000 feminine care products in their lifetimes. If you don't know what kind of ingredients are in these products, you don't know what your body could be absorbing or what you could be contributing to the environment when you dispose of them.
LOLA's tampons are made entirely of 100% organic cotton, so you can use them and dispose of them guilt-free.
Myro produces deodorant with reusable cases that you can refill with your favorite scents. The company's mission is to "Do Good Sh*t" by helping take care of our bodies and the world in which we live.
Myro's deodorants are sustainable and eco-friendly. When Myro realized how much plastic people waste when they throw away their disposable sticks of deodorant, the company decided to make a change and introduce reusable pods.
If you ever want to replace your Myro reusable deodorant case, you can throw your old one away without too much worry. Myro makes their deodorant pods with 50 percent less plastic than their competitors, so they are more eco-friendly than other deodorant products on the market.
You can purchase Myro products from the comfort of your home and decide how often they ship out your refills. Choose your scent and color and the company will continue to send you refills every three months. You can switch scents, pause your refills, or cancel your subscription at any time.

The pregnancy test's design even features a proprietary coating that repels liquid long enough to take a test but does not compromise its ability to break down in water.
Lia's pregnancy test is primed to hit the market later this year.
A New Type of Toilet Paper
Our mission at Reel Paper is to build a new type of paper company. We care about helping the planet and helping our fellow humans while providing fantastic and sustainable bamboo paper products.
The living conditions of 2.4 billion people force them to defecate outside, which leads to lost dignity, deadly pathogens, contaminated water, and even loss of life.
At Reel Paper, for every roll of bamboo toilet paper you buy, we donate a single-use biodegradable toilet bag to one of the 2.4 billion people worldwide who need them. Thanks to our customers, people now have a healthier, safer option for disposing of human waste.
We make our paper with 100% sustainable bamboo. Plus, you can order your toilet paper online and have boxes delivered straight to your door. So you'll never have to worry about buying jumbo cart-hogging packages at the grocery store ever again.
