The Thinx Reusable Tampon Applicator Is a Game Changer

By  | 

According to the EPA, plastics make up 12 percent of solid waste, out of which only eight percent gets recycled. Now think about the number of tampons you go through each month. That’s a lot of plastic applicators being thrown away.


“Every year, 7,000,000,000 plastic tampon
applicators end up in landfills. So, we invented a
Reusable Tampon Applicator. And we’ve got 100% Organic Cotton Tampons to go with ‘em.


Thankfully, that is about to change, thanks to ‘Thinx’ and their reusable tampon applicator. Thinx, who already make period panties, invented the first ever reusable applicator. The Thinx reusable tampon applicator is made from medical-grade silicone, and comes with a little cap on it that looks like a lipstick.



Yes there are applicator less tampons already available but with Thinx’s version, you just use it like a plastic applicator, wash it off, and throw it back in your bag. You can use it with any applicator-less tampon, or with their new 100% organic cotton tampons.

The reusable applicator will be out mid-March, and the tampons will be out January 31st on
