Ethical. Period by The Good Shopping Guide | May 1, 2019 | Ethical Accreditation, Ethical Shopping Blog | 0 comments Natracare is a pioneer in natural feminine hygiene products, having developed the world’s first brand of organic and natural period products in 1989. Natracare provides a range of natural and organic tampons, pads, liners and wipes enabling women to avoid plastics, perfumes and chlorine – protecting both your health and the environment. In addition to menstrual products, Natracare also offers incontinence and baby care products. This year marks the 10th year that Natracare has successfully retained independent Ethical Accreditation from The Ethical Company Organisation and the company consistently ranks at the top of The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Ranking Tables – the testament of the company’s core ethical principles: caring for the health, caring for the planet and caring for others. Natracare recently became the first company to receive the ‘Fine to Flush’ symbol for their Safe to Flush moist tissues, having passed a stringent test by Water UK (which represents water and sewerage companies in Britain). The symbol is intended to reassure consumers that the products do not contain plastic and will break down in the sewer system instead of clogging up sewers and contributing to the growing number of fatbergs. Natracare understands the importance of validating their ethical claims, with independent accreditation and product certification. In addition to Ethical Accreditation, the company is certified by The Vegetarian Society, The Soil Association, Nordic Ecolabel, USDA Biobased, EPD, Made Safe, ISO 13485, GOTS, Cosmos Organic, EWG and Water UK. Further details for each can be found on Natracare’s website.
