It’s time we start realising the impact our single use products have on the environment.
Single use period products contribute to billions of waste that goes to landfills, not to mention the billions of pads and tampons that end up getting flushed away down the toilet each year.
Our wildlife is dying.🐠
With over a million birds and hundreds of thousands of sea life dying each year from plastic.
Our mother nature is suffering. 🌏
It takes more than 500 years for pads to decompose. Sanitary waste that is incinerated leads to toxic pollution which is harmful to us and the environment.
It’s a sad fact but what mother nature gave us to put life on earth is destroying her!
It’s time to make a change. One period at a time.
What if we told you there is another alternative to single use period products and that it isn’t as scary as it seems.
Franki Period Care has a whole range of sustainable period products to help make a difference to your periods and the environment.
