This is because period plastic is a growing issue, that is endlessly contributing to our plastic crisis.
DAME is raising awareness of the 'hidden plastics' that appears in our day-to-day lives.
So, what is Plastic Free July? Plastic Free July is a month of raising awareness about the issues with plastic pollution.
It is also a chance for everyone and anyone to attempt to live a plastic-free lifestyle for a month.
Period plastic is very much a part of this: did you know that the UK sees 200,000 tonnes of waste a year from just pads and panty liners?

Did you know that 90% of sanitary pads are made of plastic?
Well, DAME conducted a survey and it revealed that 83% of women widely underestimated the amount of plastic in a conventional period pad.
Likewise, around two thirds of respondents incorrectly believed that a standard tampon applicator-free tampon didn't contain plastic.
Ultimately, this survey revealed that many of us don't know what's entering our bodies when it comes to sanitary products.
This lack of awareness about the prevalence of period plastic lead to over half the women surveyed in shock after learning about the realities of period plastic.

DAME pride themselves on their tampons. DAME's tampons are completely plastic-free, as well as organic and made from GOTS certified cotton.
The packaging of the tampons are also completely sustainable and plastic-free. The wrappers are fully compostable (just like the tampons) and derived from sustainably sourced wood pulp.
While there is a common misconception that the plastic wrapping is hygienic, it is far from the truth.
