Use a reusable tampon applicator

Reusable tampon applicator

To tackle the sea of plastic that comes with period products, DAME have created a reusable tampon applicator (along with a subscription service) to reduce the plastic waste that comes with each monthly flow.

1.3 billion UK applicators end up in landfills or the ocean each year



  • Reported to be comfortable to use, and self-sanitising technology makes it easy to clean
  • One applicator can be used for up to 10 years
  • The applicator works with all sizess of tampons
  • Subscription service available through their website for 100% organic cotton tampons


  • Not all women use tampons (check out some of our other cards for alternative period products)

Making a difference

In their first year DAME have saved 2.5 million applicators from being thrown away.
