How do I dispose of them?
Dispose of used sealed bag in public or household bin in general waste. Unused bags can go in the recycle bin, canisters and end caps too!
Do the bags leak?
fem-it® bags are made of non-permeable LDPE 4 and when sealed as per instructions they should not leak.
Will there be an odour?
fem-it® bags are made of non-permeable LDPE 4 and when sealed as per instructions they should not smell.
What are the bags made of?
A great deal of time and effort has been put into researching materials to produce the fem-it® bags.
We planned to use a recycled or degradable material however we found after much research and trials that current options do not have the performance qualities we felt necessary for disposing of used feminine hygiene products.
At this stage, recycled plastic is variable in its quality, strength and permeability. A degradable bag has a risk of degrading before or during use. These materials do not currently meet the fem-it® standards.
We have chosen this type of LDPE 4 for its strength and non-permeability, as this is the same type of material that is used in medical grade specimen and waste bags.
What are the canisters and caps made of?
The canisters are supplied to us from a large local recycler and are made from recycled pulp. They can be recycled again. The caps are supplied to us from a large local recycler and are made from recycled plastics. They too can be recycled again.
Can I put them in a commercial Sanitary disposal bin?
fem-it® is designed for all those occasions where we don't have the convenience or access to a sanitary waste bin. You may also check the instructions on the commercial sanitary bin.
Do the bags come in other sizes?
The fem-it® bags have been manufactured in a single size that accommodates any size tampon, and most liners or pads up to a large overnight pad, and of course condoms.
What is the best way to remove the bags from my canister?
The best way is to insert your index finger into the centre of the rolled bags, then rotate and pull your finger up to remove a bag.
