Period protection & environment


Make an eco-friendly choice
Did you know that the average menstruating person uses approximately 12,000 – 16,000 disposable pads or tampons in a lifetime? After each use, these products are thrown away and many end up in nature in one way or another. Once in nature, it takes around 500-600 years for them to break down. Disposable pads and tampons are made of a lot of plastic and as if that wasn't enough, they are usually packaged separately, the small plastic cover around the tampon and the plastic pocket that surrounds the pad. It feels really unnecessary. A lot of plastic is used once and then thrown away. With Imse's menstrual protection, you can manage a menstrual life of 40 years with approx. 70 pads or tampons. Think of the difference between 16,000 and 70!

In Sweden, we burn our garbage, an approach that is debated. Burning garbage leads to the release of toxic substances. But in most other places in the world, the garbage is landfilled, which means that the mountains of garbage containing plastic from sanitary pads, panty liners, and tampons are extremely large and growing larger every day. But aside from the amount of waste, the disposable industry burdens the environment because the manufacturing process and the emissions from manufacturing harm air, water, and wildlife. If you can use a product more than once, you save the environment. 

The health benefits are as numerous as the environmental benefits
