Petition Make UK Period Product Makers List Ingredients on Product Packaging
Due to there being no legal obligation for ingredients to be listed, we aren't aware of what's in these products. They're 90% plastic (stats linked) causing environmental issues and possibly health issues as we're absorbing this plastic into us. We have a right to easily know what's in our products.
