An article published by Forbes revealed that the world’s first reusable tampon applicator has been invented. The product, D by DAME aims to reduce the amount of waste produced by sanitary products (an estimated 100 billion products around the world each year). The idea was bought to life after research conducted by the company revealed that women felt that changing to reusable products would have a significant impact on them, so the company created a sustainable solution that was easy for women to adopt – particularly for the 60% of UK women who prefer applicator tampons.
