Because we can’t carry on like this

Did you know that a single disposable pad or tampon takes longer to degrade than the lifespan of the woman who wore it, in fact, it can take up to 800 years! Or that 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used in the UK every year equating to 200,000 tonnes of menstrual waste hitting UK landfill per year? Unlikely to come up in a pub quiz, we know, but still important.

The good news is, making the switch to more eco-friendly periods is easy.
