Monthlies offers a more sustainable option when it comes to more ‘conventional’ period products. If reusables aren’t for you for whatever reason, but you’d like to be more sustainable when it comes to your period products, making the switch to a more sustainable option might be for you.
Here’s how Monthlies period products are a sustainable option…
- They’re designed to reduce waste.
Our period products are designed to reduce waste, so even though they’re one-time use and disposable the amount of waste the reduce is kept to a minimum.
Our applicator tampons are wrapped in cellulose paper wrapping, and the applicator itself is made from recyclable cardboard. You can choose to recycle these parts or, because they’re made from natural materials, they can be composted in your brown waste bin. As for the tampon itself, that’s made from 100% organic cotton and will decompose much quicker than plastic-filled alternatives.
Our Pads are wrapped in bio-plastic meaning the wrapping and the pad itself can be popped in your brown bin. The back sheet of the pad wrapping can be recycled.
2) They’re made using renewable energy
Monthlies’ manufacturer is based in Europe, meaning lower emissions to get to us here in Ireland, and they use renewable energy to produce our products!
3) Our packaging is also sustainable
The mailer you’ll receive your subscription box in is 100% compostable, so pop this in your brown bin too. The mailer box is also compostable as It’s been printed with vegetable-based inks, but you can opt to recycle it too. All of the inserts you’ll find in your order are made from FSC certified paper, and are fully recyclable.
4) Reduce emissions by opting for less frequent shipping
We have two choices when it comes to how often you’d like your period products delivered. Every 4 weeks or every 8. If you’d like to be even more sustainable when it comes to your period care you can opt to double up on your products and have them delivered every 8 weeks!
