THE FUTURE OF FEMALE HYGIENE – REUSABLE SEAMLESS PERIOD UNDERWEAR

 

May 21.2022

 

 

 

 

 

A panty liner or tampon may appear insignificant, but just as menstrual management products can have an impact on your health, they can also have a significant environmental impact. Apart from being linked to the potentially deadly TSS infection, Tampons are one of the worst offenders in terms of environmental impact when it comes to period products. The majority of tampons are made of absorbent materials such as plastic, rayon, or a blend of cotton and rayon and synthetic fibers, are wrapped in plastic, and frequently have polyester or polypropylene strings and plastic applicators. Tampon applicator plastics are made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE), an environmentally hazardous pollutant that requires energy-intensive processing. The most harmful to the environment are the fossil fuel emissions from plastic production, and while applicators are made of recyclable materials, they are not accepted because they are considered medical waste. Every year, 200 000 tons of tampon waste go unrecycled.

 

 

 

 

Emer found a way to reduce tons of waste generated by sanitary pads and tampons by creating menstrual panties that are more absorbent than any traditional sanitary protections with their 4 layers’ absorbency. In the morning you just put on your menstrual panties and that’s it. It can last for 8 to 10 hours. Then you just rinse it when you arrive home and wash it with your regular clothes. No smell and it is anti-bacterial, no more fungus and vaginal infection.

 

 

 

 

Materials are formulated to be absorbent, anti-bacterial, without growing wet, neutralize odors, prevent leaks, and wick away moisture. This is so much more hygienic than pads and tampons that have chemicals! In addition, they last for 3 to 5 years saving money and waste. Emer even proposes menstrual swimsuits too!  

 

FUN FACTS 

A woman has her period over 39 years on average from 13 years old to 50 years old

13 cycles per year

1 cycle is 22 tampons or pads on average

 

COST 

Cups: +/- 30$

Pads: +/- 0.22$ per unit

Tampons: +/- 0.19$ per unit

 Emer menstrual panty : 30$

 

Let’s compare 3 years of use of pads or tampons:

1 cycle = 22 tampons or pads

x 13 cycle per year = 286 tampons or pads

x RP of pads and tampons = 0.22$

x 3 years = 188.76$ + cost of degraded panties to replace due to leakage

286 pads or tampons used | huge waste generated | 500 years to degrade

 

3 years of Emer:

3 panties = 90$

No waste generated

Savings over 3 years: 98.76$

Savings over 5 years: 225$

 

A revolution for women is on… Let’s spread the word!
