&Sisters – Reusable Period Products

Last Updated: Mar 25, 2022 @ 11:47 am

Ever since I first became aware of period underwear I’ve been on the look out for a company to support in the transition to reusable sanitary products. This is a type of rubbish that we don’t like to think about and yet period products are the 5th most common item found on Europe’s beaches, more widespread than single-use coffee cups, plastic bags, cutlery or straws.   With 1.9 billion women globally of menstruating age, its shocking that so many of us have no idea what the products used in and around our most intimate body parts are made of.  Did you know, one pack of conventional sanitary pads contains the equivalent of 5 plastic bags? 

It’s time for “environmenstrual” alternatives to become the norm, which is why I’ve just invested in &SISTERS – a female-founded A certified B Corp on a mission to do better by their sisters and the planet.  &SISTERS offers eco-friendly alternatives to all women, no matter what their age or life stage. It’s great to join their mission to empower millions more sisters to take better care of both our homes: our bodies and our planet.

&SISTERS is on a mission to build the world’s first menstrual health ecosystem, helping menstruators navigate the biological, psychological and social symptoms directly linked to the menstrual cycle at every stage of life. Our sustainable products and services, powered by smart technology, serve to empower and inform our community of sisters to take care of both homes: their bodies and the planet.

Our planet has suffered – we provide a credible solution to plastic waste generated from period products and at the same time provide women with a safe alternative to an industry that has never considered their customer’s health.
