Yes, Yoni tampons are biodegradable. You can throw them on the compost heap because they are made from 100% organic cotton. Unfortunately, the individual packaging of the tampon (the plastic wrapper) is not biodegradable. We tried bioplastic but it isn’t strong enough yet to hold the tampon together or it made it impossible to open. This is something we are working on and hope to change in the future. And of course don’t forget to throw the outer carton packaging in the paper bin.
Yoni tampons are made in Germany and Yoni pads and pantyliners are made in Italy.
On all of Yoni product packaging you will find a number of droplets. These droplets stand for the absorbency of the product and are industry standard. This makes it easy to compare products! For example if you are now using a tampon or pad with 3 droplets, then you can best switch to a Yoni product with 3 droplets as well.
