Organic vs Non-Organic Products - The Environmental Imapct

In Australia, an astonishing 90% of tampons, pads, and liners are crafted from plastic. Over the course of a menstruator's life, they'll use a staggering 11,000 of these plastic-laden period care products. Imagine if these items were laid end-to-end – they would stretch the length of 9 Eureka towers.

Even more disconcerting, approximately 18,000 tons of single-use menstrual products find their way into landfills each year within Australia. These non-organic products can take an astounding 800 years to decompose.

To put it in perspective, one non-organic pad is equivalent to the environmental impact of 5 plastic bags. It's unsettling to realise that these items could remain for generations, casting a shadow over the future of our children and the 11th generation of their descendants.
