We're proud to announce we're working with &SISTERS, a feminine product company, dedicated to reducing the impact of period products on the environment.
We've already helped to stop over seven tonnes of plastic from entering the environment since our launch in 2018, and now we're making it our mission to make periods plastic-free!
Currently, sanitary products, such as plastic applicators, are the fifth most common item found on beaches in Europe - more than straws or plastic cutlery. An estimated 2.5m tampons are flushed down the toilet every day in the UK and approximately 200,000 tonnes of sanitary material end up in UK landfill every single year.
We were shocked when we found out the scale of daily plastic waste generated due to periods. Tampon applicators are used for seconds but take hundreds of years to break down. This is a global issue we need to take seriously, and this starts with providing earth-friendlier products. We couldn’t be happier to be working with &SISTERS to provide truly biodegradable options.
We were motivated to work with &SISTERS because they share our commitment to making a difference in the world. The &SISTERS products we're selling are biodegradable or reusable and contain no traditional oil-based plastics. The tampon and liner products are made from 100% natural, organic cotton; unlike many other brands which are chemically treated. This makes the hygiene products hypoallergenic, skin-friendly, pH neutral and naturally absorbent. We're also offering &SISTERS reusable cups, which can save up to 2,000 disposable period products over the cup’s lifetime.
Following the launch on Thursday 16th January we're proud to say EcoVibe will be the UK’s only stockists of &SISTERS paper-wrapped, organic cotton non-applicator tampons!
We couldn’t be prouder to offer products which are not only great for the environment but great for women too. We feel like we’re making a difference in the lives of women across the globe.
The &SISTERS range will be available on Ecovibe.co.uk from Thursday 16th January. Products start at £3.99.
Love, Becky x
