According to figures published in the Journal of the Institution of Environmental Sciences, approximately 2.5 million (predominately plastic) tampons are flushed down the toilet in the UK every single day. That's 60% of women that flush their tampon down the toilet, risking blocking the toilet and, even worse, ending up in the planet’s rivers and oceans.
So help our sewage system by ditching the plastic and commit to bagging and binning.

As the name suggests, &SISTERS is the brainchild of more than one person, a daughter and mother duo Lucy and Claire Lettice.
Having experienced, first-hand, the shame and hardship that comes with lack of access to safe period products, they decided to take action. Drawing on Claire’s entrepreneurial background and Lucy’s expertise as a buyer, they dreamt up a model for a new kind of conscious period product - one that was better for our bodies, better for our planet and better for our sisters- ensuring women and girls worldwide had better access to the highest quality, sustainable period products.
&SISTERS is on a mission to reimagine the future of female health, starting with safe, sustainable and beautifully designed period products. The business is built on three main pillars:
