I hadn’t really thought of it before but the fact that we use and IUD as a form of birth control creates less waste, is nonpollutant like hormonal BC, and is the most effective form of birth control. This article refers to the IUD as the greenest form of BC. I wrote a zine about my IUD. I have and eco-womb!
When Paul and I were in Utah last fall we went to the huge Kennecot Copper mine among other touristy things we never did when we lived in Utah. Standing at the rim of the huge pit I made a joke about the copper from IUD coming from very mine!
