SAVE THE OCEANS

If you haven't already heard, a whopping 1.2 billion disposable tampon applicators get flushed down the UK loos every year. Period plastic is named the 5th most common to wash up on Europe's beaches and it is expected by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. This is something we are keen to help prevent - similarly, climate-positive femcare brand DAMEhas a core mission to reduce period plastic and keep this type of plastic waste at bay. Alongside offering a range of 100% organic cot ton tampons, free from bleaches, dyes and synthetic fibres, DAME introduced the world's first reusable tampon applicator it is estimated each woman who switches to a D reusable applicator will approximately prevent 12,00 single use applicators from entering the oceans. For such a simple switch it is a no brainer.

D, £24.99 Organic Tampons, £3.49 Available in regular, super and super plus absorbencies. Available to buy from www.wearedame.co
