The average woman uses approximately 11,400 disposable products per lifetime.
In Australia alone, that’s 18,000 tonnes of sanitary waste going to landfill every year.
Switching to reusables is a striking example of how seemingly small personal choices can have a tremendous positive impact on our environment.
Do you ever wonder what is in the disposable pads and tampons? If you have experienced irritations or allergies or are concerned about any other health impacts from using disposables, reusables may help alleviate these concerns.
