The dirty truth about where our period products end up.
There is currently no sustainable way to dispose of period products. They will end their life in landfill, waterways or incinerators. All of these disposal methods result in permanent and irreversible pollution. Over 3 million tonnes of microplastics are created from pads alone.
We designed flushable pads to break this cycle for good.
Our solution to the plastic crisis.
