Plastic Free July, Plastic Negative

Plastic Free July, Plastic Negative

Hey there, eco-warriors! Every July, millions of people around the globe participate in Plastic Free July, a movement dedicated to kicking single-use plastic to the curb and embracing sustainable alternatives. This mission is music to our ears at Saalt, the world’s first period care brand to certify as Plastic Negative. That means we’re not just reducing plastic—we’re removing more of it from the planet than we put in. So, let’s dive into how Saalt is making waves in the world of sustainable period care during Plastic Free July and beyond.

Embracing Plastic-Free Menstrual Care

  1. Reusable Menstrual Cups and Menstrual Discs

Traditional menstrual products like pads and tampons are plastic-filled nightmares, piling up in landfills and oceans. Enter Saalt’s menstrual cups and menstrual discs—sustainable superheroes made from medical-grade silicone, an eco-friendly material. These reusable products are game-changers, eliminating the need for single-use plastic. Choosing Saalt means slashing your plastic footprint this July and every month after. Many Saalt customers rate Saalt Cups as the best menstrual cup on the reusable market. Talk about a win-win!

Leading the Charge: Saalt as a Plastic Negative Brand

  1. Plastic Negative Certification

Call us over-achievers, but we’ve never been satisfied with the status quo. We’ve teamed up with rePurpose Global to become the world’s first period care brand to certify as Plastic Negative. We’re talking double the impact—removing twice as much plastic waste from the environment as we generate in our supply chain. That’s 200% of our plastic footprint, folks! And guess what? This effort also supports higher-paying jobs for waste workers and boosts recycling programs in communities hit hardest by plastic pollution. It’s a win for the planet and the people!

Sustainable Product Initiatives

  1. Innovative Packaging Solutions

At Saalt, “reusable” and “sustainable” are our middle names. Our Saalt Wash is now packaged in tubes made with 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic. Sure, finding a perfect plastic-free solution wasn’t a walk in the park (hello, aluminum drama), but we’re all about those small wins for our planet. Sometimes you have to take baby steps before you can run a marathon.

Community and Environmental Impact

  1. Beach Cleanup Initiatives

Did you know single-use tampon applicators are among the top offenders found on beaches? Yikes! That’s why Saalt is rolling up its sleeves and helping clean up plastic waste from beaches, including those beautiful Hawaiian shores. It’s our way of showing some love to Mother Earth and spreading awareness about the impact of single-use menstrual products.

Educational Campaigns and Advocacy

  1. Educational Campaigns and Advocacy

Plastic Free July is the perfect time for us to turn up the volume on our educational campaigns.
