'World's first' reusable tampon applicator seeks to cut plastic waste

DAME D tampon applicator

DAME has launched D, which it says is the world's first reusable tampon applicator – designed to ditch single-use plastic waste.

It's just hit the shelves of Waitrose (proving how easy it is to find reusable stuff these days) after exceeding a crowdfunding target by a massive 500 per cent in 2018.

British brand DAME says it worked with medical engineers to design D – compatible with all standard tampons – which is made from BPA-free medical grade Mediprene with an antimicrobial technology called Sanipolymers.

D (£24.99) comes with a storage tin, travel pouch and six DAME organic cotton tampons.
