Empower your menstrual journey with sustainable options.
According to a study by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the average woman in developed countries uses around 11,000 menstrual hygiene products in her lifetime.
Disposable menstrual products, such as pads and tampons, are major contributors to pollution on beaches and oceans. A study by Ocean Conservancy found that menstrual hygiene products are the fifth most commonly found type of trash on beaches worldwide.
Furthermore, disposable menstrual products are slow to decompose, taking hundreds of years to break down. Tampons, for example, are made of cotton and polyester that do not easily decompose in the environment.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, a single tampon can take between 500 and 800 years to decompose. We believe that menstrual hygiene and ecology should not be mutually exclusive.
That's why our products are reusable and have a lifespan of up to 5 years. By choosing reusable products from Ecowoman, you are reducing your carbon footprint by up to 90% compared to disposable products.
