Lisa Gill, TOSSIBLES Founder & Inventor
Hello, I'm Lisa and I believe in making the world a better place through clever innovation and conscious design. I seek a world where period shame is not a thing, where restrooms are sanitary, and where menstruation is effortless to handle.
We’ve all been there. How often do you find yourself in this situation: you’re in a public restroom (work, school, friend’s house, etc.), and it’s that time of the month? Do you ever change your tampon and not be sure what to do with it? Do you flush it? Throw it away? What if there’s no toilet paper or trash can? What if it doesn’t flush? Before long, a simple bathroom break can turn into a stressful event.
Did you know it’s actually harmful to both the plumbing and the environment to flush your tampon? I didn’t either. Plenty of restrooms are plastered with signs (some are simply rude) that discourage tampon flushing with no suitable alternative.
This situation can be awkward, embarrassing, and downright inconvenient. And we’ve all been there. I’ve been there. And at TOSSIBLES, that’s what we’re trying to change.
The truth is, stigmas around periods often result in misinformation and even environmental harm.
Unfortunately, the world is not optimized for our periods. Until now!
As a woman, mother, and wife, I am so thrilled to share my vision with you of a better world for everyone who menstruates.
