Hygiene in Germany

There are many, many things to love about Germany. The two-prong binders, for one. The electrical outlets. The spatzle and spetzi and the bright red currants. And, as pictured here, the sanitary napkin disposal bags (from a museum restroom in Berlin). So adorable! So encouraging! Look at how happy the little guy in overalls is about your menstrual cycle. He has absolute faith in you--you will not throw that pad or tampon in the WC. No! You will use the Astrein (translated, via widget, as "branch clean") AS 70 Hygiene Beutel provided. To seal the deal, he's giving you a wink and TWO thumbs up. He doesn't want you to feel embarrassed either. He's just hanging out there, on his little tightrope or whatever, wearing a handyman cap. Doing his thing. Thanks, Germany. I miss you.
