Make menstrual products plastic-free
Ella Daish, pictured above, is running a campaign to try and get plastic out of menstrual products. So far she has convinced Aldi, Sainsbury’s and Superdrug to ditch plastic applicators for biodegradable, cardboard alternatives in their own-brand products.
Now she is targeting brand leader Tampax. To get their attention, she created a giant plastic tampon from abandoned plastic applicators sent to her by supporters, 87.5% of which were Tampax. But Tampax has, so far, declined to ditch the plastic.
