D Reusable Tampon Applicator and Organic Tampons

DAME has created D, the world's first reusable tampon applicator to stop the billions of single-use plastic applicators that are thrown away every year.

Plastic is the hot topic right now. As we look for more sustainable products in our everyday lives, businesses are responding with innovative creations. But consumers are not willing to compromise on quality. Products also must not only be better than the current options on the market, but be beautifully designed and desirable. Our products are better for the environment, better for women, and more convenient.
