To the woman who used and disposed of that tampon in the woods: What compelled you to leave your used tampon cartridge, packaging and all, in the middle of a trail? Any trail? What makes you think it is okay to leave plastic in the wilderness? How did you suppose that rock on top of it would help?
I’m confused, shocked, and embarrassed about this. Please, gals, weigh in. And—for the sake of the offender and others like her—go ahead and offer some suggestions for properly handling menstruation (and the products that go with) in the woods.
