Did you know that every year an estimated 1.5 to 2 billion period care items are flushed down Britain’s toilets? The majority of which ends up as ocean plastic pollution.
For every TOTM cardboard applicator tampon sold, we recover the equivalent weight of plastic from the ocean.
We have recovered the equivalent of
plastic applicators from the ocean. That’s
the same as approx 55 grand pianos.
We work with Plastic Bank® for this initiative. Plastic Bank® empowers the regenerative society and tackles ocean plastic while improving the lives of the collector community. Collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance.

We are supporting period dignity.

At TOTM, we’re working to improve access to these essential products through our period dignity schemes and donation campaigns.
Our gift-a-pad program donates to In Kind Direct.
We’re proud to support In Kind Direct as our period dignity partner. In Kind Direct is a registered UK charity that can reach thousands of people through a large network of charitable organisations.
Our gift-a-pad program is designed to provide a steady flow of pads to In Kind Direct. Our pads are available at a reduced price so you can choose to gift these at the checkout or donate your next order. We also run donation campaigns throughout the year, so keep an eye out on socials!
Our periods at work survey discovered that over 70% of our community had been caught short by their period in the workplace.
We set up this scheme to bust taboos and drive period positive change in workplaces everywhere. Through this scheme, we’re making organic cotton period care products available to anyone who needs them in workplaces and universities across the UK.

In the UK, 1 in 10 women and those assigned female at birth of reproductive age suffer with endometriosis, yet it can take up to 8 years to be diagnosed. Endometriosis UK is the leading UK charity supporting anyone impacted by endometriosis.
We donate 1% of our online revenue and 10p from every box sold via our Period Positive Workplace Scheme.
The team behind TOTM
Inspired by both of their daughters, Kate & Saint founded TOTM with the desire to build a purpose-led brand that offers better, sustainable ways to manage periods.
Our HQ is in Cardiff, South Wales where you’ll find most of our team but we’re proud to have a remote team working across the UK. We’ve created a period positive work environment with menstrual leave, menstruation and menopause policies, and free period care (of course!).
Making a difference is part of our culture at TOTM.
