On an average 11,000 menstrual items are used each year & period products were voted to be the 5th largest ocean polluter- this had to change. Although Anushka was pleased to find a few products in the market that was organic & biodegradable, however, as a customer she was not satisfied with the quality, performance & packaging. Many still came with wrappers, core, back sheet all made of plastic and did not absorb well enough causing leaks and stains. This meant that if customers decided to switch to a plastic free period product, they would have to compromise with the performance & quality.
Abi & Anushka wanted to make a product which was not only plastic free, chemical free, dioxin free and fragrance free in all layers, but also wanted it to be fit for its purpose & more. Two years of research and development materialised the concept of Plastfree, the highest absorbing biodegradable sanitary pad range available in Europe & every element free of plastic. They are better than the plastic ones as instead of 800 years, Plastfree products take from 6 months for tampons & up to 2 years for pads to biodegrade in a warm & humid condition. 100% cotton covers to biodegradable ingredients; Plastfree truly justifies its name & value.
