DAME is the tampon brand helping you cut down on single-use plastic | Dazed Beauty

It’s no secret that our plastic use is out of control and having a devasting effect on the environment. As a society we are beginning to make changes to cut down on single-use plastics, however, something that often gets overlooked is the plastic waste that is tied to menstrual products. Tampons and sanitary pads are estimated to produce over 100 billion pieces of waste every year and they are the fifth-most common type of waste washing up on beaches, with nine plastic tampon applicators found per kilometre on UK beaches according to the Women’s Environmental Network.
