DAME launch world’s first reusable tampon applicator

This week, DAME launched the world’s first reusable tampon applicator, designed to replace the 1.3 billion single use plastic applicators thrown away in the UK every year.

Since it’s launch on Kickstarter in March 2018, DAME’s reusable applicator has gained worldwide media attention, trended globally on Twitter, exceeded its crowdfunding target by 500% from backers in 50+ countries, secured a nationwide listing at Waitrose, and won an acclaimed Dezeen Design Award for its ‘admirable effort to reduce disposable plastic’.

DAME recently secured B Corp status and are striving to be carbon neutral within the year. Advance London have supported DAME by validating the positive environmental impact of replacing single use applicators, developing their carbon calculator and providing recommendations on carbon offsetting schemes.
