Sea Pearls are completely natural reusable sea sponge tampons containing no dioxins or synthetic fibers. Sustainably harvested and reusable for three to six months or more, Sea Pearls are easy to use, economical, and earth friendly.
Sea Pearls are extremely comfortable, soft, and textured much like the vaginal wall. They can be custom trimmed to fit your unique form, so you won't even notice they are there! Sponges are naturally very absorbent, and can also be used during sex. Some women choose to use them for contraception with a spermicide of their choice.
Sea Pearls are convenient - no more running to the store for emergency tampons. Compared to the cost of conventional single use tampons and pads, our reusable Sea Pearls save you money and you will never again need to worry about polluting the environment with used feminine hygiene products. Can you believe the average woman uses nearly 17,000 disposable pads and tampons throughout her lifetime? In North America alone, an estimated 20 billion bleached pads and tampons end up in our landfills and sewage systems each year!
Wondering what "sustainably harvested" means?
Sponges are harvested in Florida by divers that hand-cut the sponge, or in shallow waters where diving is restricted, by hooking the sponge. Sponges actually possess the ability to regenerate much like a starfish. So when sea sponges are harvested, the divers leave a bit of sponge at the base thus ensuring it will grow back. Since the sponge divers' business thrives on the regeneration of sponges and them growing as fast as possible, they are very careful in their practices to ensure they are protecting the future of the sponge bed. Additionally, only a very small percentage (2.4%) of the sponge population in Florida is actually harvested for commercial purposes and none of those type of sponges grow in coral reef areas.
There is much more information at the following link from the University of Florida that should help answer any other questions about this harvesting process: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/sg095
