THINX just launched a reusable tampon applicator and yay for the environment

THINX, the brand who brought you the reusable period underwear are back with a new invention.

THINX has just launched a reusable tampon applicator that's not just good for the environment, replacing single-use plastic tampon applicators but, it'll also make you feel eco-friendly as a handy alternative to the often daunting, menstrual cup.

To use the applicator, all you need to do is purchase tampons as normal and insert them using the nifty tool. The applicator has a slick, discreet design meaning it's perfect to pop into your handbag, ready and loaded.

Explaining exactly what the product is made of, the description reads:

“Like our reusable underwear, re.t.a can help you create a more sustainable and intentional period care routine—it’s designed with medical-grade materials (not made with BPA or natural rubber latex).”

Yay for Mother Earth.

You can purchase the applicator online here.
