The popularity of all things organic continues to grow, from food, textiles, cleaning products to cosmetics, and in our case, tampons. But whilst emphasizing the benefits to the individual consumer’s health and wellbeing, it’s easy to forget the dramatic impact that buying organic can also have on the environment.
As we celebrate WWF’s Earth Hour www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour – where individuals turn off the light for an hour as a symbolic show of support for action on climate change – we’d like to reflect on how organic cotton is both better for the environment as well as for the user
Why is organic cotton better for the environment?
“Conventional cotton uses as much as 25% of the world’s insecticides and 10% of the pesticides used in the world versus 3% of the cultivated area”.
And for the user?
100% organic cotton tampons are totally biodegradable and free from chemicals, pesticides, glues, fragrances and dyes often found in popular brands.
