MATERIALS

In the search of right material usage we found it right to balance between sustainability and cost. We have used our common sense; The used tamponbag can contribute to the environmental pollution, but used tampons belong to the residual waste and certainly not on the compost heap. If a tendency develops in which used tampons are increasingly disposed of to the compost, and tampons are available with a degradable sheath, we see it as our task to introduce a fully degradable TAMPON TO GO right away.

TAMPONS

We only use tamponbrands from well known manufacturers.

PLASTIC

The bio-based plastic is made of natural, renewable raw materials, which makes the earth not exhausted. Such as wood, bamboo, jute, flax and cotton, but also corn and potatoes. The CO2 emissions in production are 30% to 70% lower than in the production of oil-based plastics. Also, the material is non-toxic and does not carry any chemicals on long-flowing water.

Due to the compulsory combustion of residual waste, green electricity is generated and the CO2 released from the bioplastic weather is freely removable by green plants in the photosynthesis process, including the above crops.

The bio-based plastics are still in development. Unfortunately, this material can not be fully sustainable at the moment. Our supplier is expected to receive the Vincotte brand. Finally, we strive for the product to receive certification that shows that raw materials for plastics are grown permanently (without chemicals and with as little energy and water as possible) and that cultivation does not affect local food supply.

PAPER

The paper and cardboard have the FSC-MIX certificate. This means at least 70% in material from FSC-certified material or recycled paper and 30% of controlled wood. This makes it impossible for the wood to be illegally harvested or harvested in violation of local rights or in violation of protection measures. Also, the wood can not come from forests that have been transformed into plantations and / or for which genetically modified trees are planted.

INK

For the paper, low migration inks are used, with minimal risk of migration. Consequently, these inks comply with EU rules as they apply to food packaging.

PREP PAD

The prep pads are made of bleached paper in combination with silver foil. The pads are bleached with alcohol additions. We strive to develop our own prep pad with more durable materials.

MANUFACTURING

The assembly of the bags takes place in one central location in the Netherlands, with the manual skills of people with a certain distance to the labor market. Only tampons in hygienically closed sleeves are rolled in the TAMPON TO GO packages. The assembly of the bags with the tampons, the prep pads and closing seals  and the wrapping is done in another location.
