Why you should make the switch to organic tampons

Why you should make the switch to organic tampons

Babe, we need to talk about tampons. But not just any old tampons, organic tampons.

At Here We Flo, we love our award-winning, 100% organic cotton FLO Eco-applicator Tampons for loads of reasons, like leak-free confidence when out and about and how you don’t feel like you’re wearing a nappy on heavier days (if you know, you know). 

But, have you ever wondered what happens to those industry-standard, non-organic tampons once they've done their job? Well, spoiler alert it’s not a pretty picture. Most non-organic tampons come with plastic applicators and synthetic materials that stick around long after your period has bid adieu. 

Non-organic tampons can also be the culprit of some serious itching, scratching and throwing off your delicate PH balance down there (the stuff of nightmares right?!) But trust us, organic tampons do none of this and make your😻 feel like pure gold.

That’s why we’re always shouting about the benefits of our FLO Eco-applicator Tampons. Crafted from super organic, hypoallergenic and biodegradable cotton, with no nasty synthetic fibres, chemical residues, dyes, pesticides, chlorine bleach or fragrances, they’re the full package and perfect for your next flow. 

If you’re still wondering, "But why should I bother making the switch?" we’ll tell you why:

Better for the planet, even better for the 😻

Traditional non-organic tampons are often made with harmful chemicals that can cause irritation, itching, and even allergic reactions. Organic tampons, on the other hand, are made with pure, natural cotton that’s gentle and breathable, reducing the risk of potential health issues. FLO Eco-applicator Tampons are free from synthetic fibres, chemical residues, dyes, pesticides, chlorine bleach and fragrance. ❌ Basically, your vagina deserves the best, and FLO’s organic tampons deliver just that.

Working with, not against our planet 

Soz to break the news but conventional tampons can actually take centuries to decompose, so that's a whole lot of plastic and other non-biodegradable materials clogging up our landfills and polluting our oceans - shocking, we know! Thankfully, 100% organic tampons are biodegradable and environmentally friendly, so you can feel good about minimizing your carbon footprint during your time of the month. FLO Eco-applicator Tampons are made from compostable materials and the sugarcane applicator + packaging are 100% recyclable. Did we mention every pack is carbon neutral too? Oh, and those plant-based sugarcane applicators make insertion a silky-smoooooth dream.

Supporting communities in need

By choosing organic tampons like ours, you’re not just making a smart choice for you, but you're also supporting amazing companies such as ClimatePartner. Our partnership with ClimatePartner has allowed us to support clean drinking water in India, improve cookstoves in Rwanda and offset nearly 2 million kg of CO2. And if you didn’t know already, 5% of Here We Flo’s profits go to people + planet! Imagine being able to say that your period does this much good. Huge flex tbh. 

Peace of mind

When it comes to your time of the month, you want as little fuss as possible, and let’s face it worrying about the bleach, fibers, dyes and fragrances in normal tampons is not it. So swap to organic tampons and rest easy knowing that you're not exposing yourself to any nasties. 

So there you have it, the lowdown on why making the switch to organic tampons is a game-changer. Not only are they better for your 😻, but they're also better for the planet. Whatcha waiting for? Go grab your FLO organic tampons here
