2. Modibodi

Modibodi sells absorbent underwear which eliminate the need for tampons or pads. It was started by mum-of-two Kristy Chong who began training for a marathon and realised that there was a real lack in progress when it comes to underwear for women. It took two years to perfect the technology, but the result is pretty damn good. The underwear can absorb as much as two tampons, and are leak-proof and sweat-proof. They also come in seamfree varieties and are designed for all bodies.

3. Liverpool St

Liverpool St's tampons are environmentally-friendly and organic.
