Plastic is killing our environment and it’s causing cancer in humans. My water now has plastic in it.

I was astonished when I realised that they weren't all cardboard any more! I can't see any problem with the cardboard applicators.

We humans are destroying earth. For companies to contribute to the destruction of our earth disgusts me. Why did Tampax change from cardboard to plastic. The design the plastic cuts into your flesh. Its awful. Whatever chemicals or materials u use now has caused alleegic reactiins. 38 yrs i used u and now say good ridens. Your productsucks.cuts..kills. DO YIU KNOW BEAUTIFUL SEA TURTLES EAT THESE OR THEY GET CAUGHT IN THERE NOSE AND THEY SUFFOCATE OR STARVE TO DEATH. THEY JUST LIKE STRAWS GET CAUGHT IN THERE NOSE OR THROAT. THEY THINKNITS FOOD. U ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THE DEATH OF THESE TURTLES, DOLPHINS ETC. BAN TAMPAX. PROCTER AND GAMBLE DOESNT CARE ABOUT WOMEN. ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY. IF YOU CARE, SWITCH BACK TO CARDBOARD, GET RID OF CHEMICALS, STOP THE PLASTIC AND STOP CUTTING CORNERS! THEY USE TO BE LONG. NOW THEY ARE HALF THE SIZE. I GO TRU 2 AN HOUR. THATS CRAZY. THE TEETH ON THE PLASTIC CUT INTO FLESH. THE PLASTIC IS NOT ERGONOMIC. ITS VERY DIFFICULT TO PRESS APPLICATOR WITH ONE HAND. YOUR DESIGN TEAM SUCKS. NO LONGER A INVESTOR IN YOUR COMPANY. GET RID OF THE PLASTIC. GO BACK TO CARDBOARD.

Many people will flush these straight down the loo and they are not biodegradable. They are only used once and are such a waste!!
