Save The PlanetIt’s World Ocean Day, and once again and we’re here to urge more people to make the switch to reusable period products. We’ve got one ocean, one climate and one future, so we must work together to protect it.

Did you know that here in the UK, we dispose of 4.6 million period products down the loo each year? These plastic-riddled tampons and pads (yes, really!) end up polluting our oceans and waterways and harming marine life. One pair of WUKAs will save up to 200 disposables from being discarded- that’s why we need more people with periods to make the switch. But we can’t make changes by ourselves. 

This year’s theme is focusing on catalysing action with transformative collaboration, so we’d like to also showcase some other bands who are fighting alongside us. without further ado, here are thirteen brands fighting against ocean waste.
