Question Is TOM Period Wear Eco friendly?

By replacing single use pads and tampons, period underwear helps prevent millions of pads and tampons from ending up in our waterways and landfill every year. Menstruation is a natural body function but the products we use to manage it do have a carbon footprint and it’s bigger than we thought. From manufacture, shipping and recycling, this all contributes to a product’s carbon footprint. A year’s worth of disposable pads and tampons for one person produces 8.9kg of CO2 emissions, the same as charging a mobile phone more than 1000 times.
