An ‘average woman’ throws away 115 – 135kg of pads, tampons and applicators away in her lifetime. Menstrual products that are properly disposed of (not flushed!) create 200,000 tonnes of landfilled waste every year in the UK. The break-down of these products in landfill contributes to the production of greenhouse gases, just like other bio-waste.
In addition, over your lifetime you can expect to save up to 94% of what you would have spent on disposables, by switching to reusables!
We do acknowledge that there are certain times and occasions where people may need to use throwaway products and we totally recognise and support this. On those occasions, opt for organic products instead of those that contain plastic, bleach and other undivulged chemicals.
