Toxic chemicals don’t belong in feminine care products. Period.
If you're a women, it pretty likely that you have used a tampon or pad (in fact the average woman who uses tampons or pads ends up using around 10,000 in her lifetime). However have you ever stopped to think about the what the tampon or pad is made of? or the chemicals that go into it? After all a woman ends up putting a tampon into the most sensitive part of her body (and a pad is right next to the most sensitive area). Campaign for Safe Cosmetics cites potential risks of feminine care products to include exposure to dioxins, pesticides, bleach and chemical fragrances.
Ellebox does NOT use plastic applicators
I'll be honest, it took me years to realize just how astounding the impact of the conventional tampon and its plastic applicator. As a tampon applicator does not get recycled, it gets tossed into the trash and ends up immediately in the landfill.
It only takes 100 women who use tampons to put 1 MILLION plastic tampon applicators into the landfill.
