The US multinational company Procter & Gamble (P&G), which makes the Tampax and Always period products, is being urged to cut plastic from its ranges.
Environmental activist and force behind the #EndPeriodPlastic campaign, Ellie Daish, has travelled to P&G’s European headquarters in Geneva to deliver a giant tampon applicator made of 1,200 discarded Tampax applicators.
Quoted in The Guardian, Ms Daish said: “I am just fed up. I’ve been doing this campaign for over three and a half years and despite being the global leader of these products they are not doing anything.”
P&G has increased its product lines containing single-use plastic, she added, in contrast to other manufacturers and retailers.
