Making the switch

Plastic-Free Period product Choices

How to take the plastic out of our periods

What if we could replace disposable, toxic period products with ones that are better for the ocean, for our wallets and for our bodies?! We can all make a small change and switch from single use, disposable period products to reusable products.

Menstrual cups

Cups made from medical-grade silicon, TPE or latex that will last you years. They’re perfect for people on the move or with an active lifestyle. Menstrual cups provide the biggest cost savings of all the plastic free options available. Find out more here.

Period pants

Super comfy absorbent underwear that will last you up to 2 years and can be washed in the washing machine. They come in every style you can imagine!

Organic tampons, pads, and liners

These are just like the tampons, pads and liners you can find from big brands, but they don’t contain nasty chemicals or plastic. We recommend opting for cardboard over bioplastic if you use applicator tampons.

Reusable period pads

Soft, comfortable, material pads which you wash after use (machine or by hand).  Available in loads of different absorbencies, colourful designs and sizes.

Reusable Tampon applicator

A reusable applicator for disposable tampons, wash and re-use for up to 10 years. Find out more here.
