Why should I care?

Because plastic periods affect your health — and your planet.

Did you know that…

  • A menstrual pad can be made up of up to 90% plastic. Each year, about 1.5 — 2 billion menstrual products are flushed down the toilets — that’s just in Britain.
  • Every year, plastic waste takes lives up to 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals and marine turtles, as well as countless fish. Human health is affected, too.
  • Non-organic menstrual products contain traces of chemical pesticides used to grow conventional cotton. Also, these chemicals harm the workers involved in cotton production.
  • Bleaching process used for conventional menstrual pads can generate dioxin, one of the most toxic and persistent chemicals, known to cause reproductive disorders and cancer.

What can I do?

Go reusable!

Washable cloth pads, menstrual cups and period underwear are all good options.

If you are not ready to completely give up the disposables just yet, switch to plastic-free 100% organic pads and tampons.

#PlasticFreePeriods are better for the environment — and for your health.
