The City of Bunbury is offering residents a rebate of up to $50 for Reusable Sanitary Products.
Published 17 August 2022
This includes sanitary pads, sanitary cups, leak-proof underwear and wet bags.
Clean Up Australia estimates there are six million menstruators nationwide, using 16 to 22 sanitary items per period, which over the course of 30-40 years means one person will use up to 15,000 pads and tampons – nearly all of which ends up in landfill.
About 90 per cent of conventional pads use plastic adhesive strips and packaging which in landfill would take 500 years to decompose, if ever.
Reusable Sanitary Products are the ideal way to reduce waste and save money. They may cost a little more up-front, but in the long term, they can help you save money.
This rebate is an incentive to help reduce the upfront costs of reusable options and have the opportunity to try reusable products.
The rebate is funded by the Better Bins FOGO Plus grant from the Waste Authority.
