Can I actually flush these?
Yes! We've all been caught out at a friends house or in a toilet without a bin, so we wanted to change that. We are launching our products once we have the European EDANA and UK SNAP flushable protocol certification so you can rest assured that they are completely safe to flush.
Will this dissolve when I use it?
We made sure that our products are completely secure to use with our patent pending structure. We used a bio-inspired shape to reduce the leakage giving our pads less risk of leaking and a higher absorbability than current disposables. Only when you flush it down your toilet will it start to disintegrate away within minutes.
What about tampons?
We are first launching with flushable and biodegradable sanitary pads but we are already developing our flushable and biodegradable tampons to add in your box! Like our pads, we've changed quite a few things that our testers said they hated!
Can I only get this online?
We are planning on getting into your nearby pharmacies, supermarkets, and convenience stores as soon but we can't compete with the big dogs for shelf space! As we grow we are planning on moving to retail as well.
What's polipop.health and polipop.gives?
Periods are more than just products. Our health initiatives are supported by a number of Institutes and Universities to use our menstrual data towards medical research, tacking gynaecological conditions such as endometriosis that affect 1 in 10 women in the UK.
Polipop.gives is our social arm that we are building at the foundation of the company. We are working with the Indian government to develop low cost, fast-drying with minimal water, reusable sanitary pads that are given to schools and villages. Each customer would be directly helping us develop and provide sanitary products to those that struggle, to realise our vision to make menstrual health and hygiene, sustainable and accessible to anyone, anywhere.
