Use a 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 yearSource
- 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.
