Celebrating the rise of reusables - did you know the average menstrual pad contains as much plastic as four carrier bags?! Hit 'SHOW MORE' to get the flow-down on plastic-free periods.


Plastic pollution is on the rise ... and so are the solutions! It's estimated that about 700,000 panty liners, 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million pads are flushed down UK toilets every day. This, along with the volume of wet wipes being flushed, creates a strain on the UK sewer system and results in other flushed plastic overflowing into rivers and seas.

Most pads and tampons have plastic in them … and lots of people don't realise they shouldn't be flushed. Let's champion the rise of resuables as the best way to stop plastic pollution from our periods at source!
