It has been revealed that every year, 1.3 billion plastic tampon applicators go into landfill in the UK. Plastic Applicators are found so often on UK beaches that many have nicknamed them 'beach whistles'. If you are an applicator user, cardboard applicators are a hugely positive step towards cutting out plastics.
Are non-organic pads better than tampons? 90% contain the equivalent of 4 carrier bags of plastic. Grace & Green's organic cotton pads and Emma Constantine's reusable plastic-free pads are so much kinder for you and the planet. Or why not try a Grace & Green period cup.
