Once you start thinking about plastic waste, you realise it’s everywhere, and hard to avoid. An integral part of products that we take for granted every day, you really have to work hard to eliminate it from your life. One product people might be unwilling to think about changing is the tampon but Albany Mae now have a sustainable swap for that too. Albany Mae make completely plastic-free tampons from organic cotton that are completely biodegradable. If every woman made this simple switch it would save thousands of tons of plastic waste each year so it’s well worth checking out.
