Environmental benefits.

You’re not only saving on cost with the reusable tampon applicator.

  • Creates less waste

    Like, a lot less waste. One reusable tampon applicator equals about 9100 plastic applicators from ending up in a landfill.

  • Made without silicone

    Meet silicone’s more eco-friendly (and cooler) cousin: medical grade thermoplastic elastomer. Unlike silicone, TPE’s raw material can be remelted and reused again and again.

Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve got questions? We’ve got answers. Let’s talk about our reusable tampon applicators, what they can do for you, and the environment. Get in touch if we didn’t answer your questions, or if you live for the details and want to learn more.

It’s similar in design to those totally unrecyclable pieces wrapped in plastic that hold tampons, except you don’t contribute towards landfills. Our colourful reusable applicators act as a tool to insert your tampon in a comfortable and (hopefully) mess-free way. The difference is that ours don’t go in the trash. You can keep it loaded for that time of the month, carrying it discreetly in your bag or back pocket with our convenient case included in each kit.
We’ve designed this product so it can be discreet and easy to clean. A rinse with warm water will do the trick, or you can wipe it with toilet paper in a pinch (cue public washroom vibes). Once your period is over, extend the plunger from the barrel and wash every nook and cranny of the device. Let the applicator dry before reassembling.
We use a unique, medical-grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and masterbatch (which gives it its vibrant pink or purple colour) for our reusable applicator. This material is made without latex or PVC and is non-slip, because we knew you’d want it that way. Thanks to the anti-silicone materials, one of these creates way less waste than the usual plastic version. We’re talking a lifetime of no more disposable applicators (a whopping 9,100 fewer, to be exact).
Ideally, we’d like to be your one and Only. Our tampons are specially designed to fit snugly in our applicator and provide a seamless insertion experience for everyone. Our reusable tampon applicator comes in two sizes; one is capable of holding our regular and super sizes, and the other works best for our super and super plus tampons. Please note that ultra tampons will not work in our reusable applicator.
This is largely based on preference. Some people who get periods might feel comfortable inserting a tampon without an applicator, having more control over where it sits inside them. Others are best friends with their applicators, allowing them a mess-free insertion. If you’re a newer menstruator, we recommend trying both so you can decide what works best for you. A quick online tutorial can always be a benefit, and not to brag, but our reviews are to the point and pretty helpful.
When it comes to reusable tampon applicators, you will have to put in a bit of DIY to ensure you are set up for success. Explore it before use, getting to know the details of the plunger, the tube, and the window. Start with clean hands and unwrap your tampon, finding the string to pull it through the side. Lift up the plunger and place the tampon in the tube. Insert on a comfortable angle (45 degrees usually works best) and gently push down on the plunger. Remove and rinse or wipe as needed. ICYMI, you’re a pro now.
Yep! Some stats estimate that we use over 9,000 tampons in our lifetime, and naturally, just as many applicators. Our non-applicator tampons are made with organic cotton that’s grown with a fraction of the water and no chemical additives or sprays compared to normal cotton. These sustainable practices build the foundation of Only, inspiring us to continue our mission by offering a reusable tampon applicator. We also created our regular and super tampons with cardboard applicators, in case you aren’t ready to switch to reusable just yet.
