Staying Dry: Eco-Friendly Hygiene Products for Travel/Hiking/Backpacking

In this session, we’ll talk about the best ways to avoid that uncomfortable leakage women sometimes get, and how to handle it while traveling, hiking, and backpacking. What does incontinence have to do with getting women to travel and explore? Quite a lot, actually. Incontinence (or urinary leakage) affects an estimated 18 million adult women in the United States. Stress incontinence is the most common type, and can happen whether or not a woman has given birth. Sneezing, coughing, laughing, or physical exercise can all trigger a leak.

Fortunately, there are eco-friendly options available to keep you dry and on the go.
