Greenblooded by Cathy Leamy

Title: Greenblooded: an introduction to eco-friendly feminine hygiene
Author: Cathy Leamy
Genre: Graphic novel, nonfiction, short works
Pages: 8
Copyright Date: 2009
Cover: Bright green, showing a female silhouette with a smiling face, hands on her hips. There is a spiral drawn over her lower torso, and spirals in the background.
First line: "This booklet is a mix of research and my own thoughts on how to manage your period."
Best part: Fills an unmet need. Leamy is right, people almost never talk about this issue. Second best part - funny!
Worst part: For those who have already spent some time thinking about eco-friendly moon supplies, there's not much in the way of new information.
Imaginary Theme Song: "Hotblooded" by Predator
Grade: B-
Recommended for: Eco-gals who want to bring green living into this area of their life, but aren't sure where to start. This would also make a good gift for a girl starting her cycle.
