What is it?An eco-friendly reusable tampon applicator.Who is it for?Females from western countries that have accepted current practice and use of tampons.Why?To reduce single use plastic applicators for the health of the environment.The problemMost American women will menstruate for about 40 years in total, bleeding for about five days a month, or about 2,400 days over the course of a lifetime (about 6 years total). A single menstruator will use somewhere between 5 and 15 thousand pads and tampons in their lifetime, which end up in landfills as plastic waste.SolutionsDesigners have the ability to redesign solutions to the large impact waste has on the environment.
