As experienced providers of Sanitary bin care, we like to keep on top of the latest news that may affect our customers, so here are our findings on what periods are now in this Post-Covid...Continue reading →


When Do Sanitary Bins Become a Social Issue

Despite having only been introduced in the last few decades, sanitary bins have become an essential and necessary part of public washrooms. They are so important, in fact, that special sanitary bin legislation was introduced specifically to ensure that people who menstruate have a safe and clean space to dispose of their sanitary waste. 

Practical issues aside,...Continue reading →


How to Maintain Hygienic Workspaces After COVID-19

According to research by VitalityHealth, workers lose 30.4 days a year on average due to sick leave or underperformance at work. In fact, it is thought that the pressure of workers to remain in work while sick could be putting an even bigger strain upon productivity than absenteeism. Even with spring looking like a positive time for businesses regarding Covid restrictions and case numbers and the summer potentially even...Continue reading →


How Does Your Period Affect Your Toilet Habits?

Periods cause enough of a headache, both literally and figuratively, as it is without having to worry about other strange changes to our bodies. However, as unpleasant as it is to talk about, your period might not be your only reason for a trip to the public toilet when it’s that time of the month. Many people who menstruate find that their bowel habits also change throughout their menstrual cycle and especially during...Continue reading →


What Do All Public Washrooms Need?

Public toilets should be a significant investment for any business or council. They are essential to public health and safety and provide us with the privacy and dignity to take care of our sanitation needs while out of the comforts of our own homes. It is essential, therefore, that when designing these washrooms, facilities managers take into consideration what is necessary for visitors to walk away with a positive...Continue reading →


What Can Affect Your Menstrual Cycle?

Your menstrual cycle can tell you a great many things about your health and keeping on top of patterns is certainly important. However, it is a misconception that a menstrual cycle is a perfectly predictable part of someone’s life. Even without contributing factors, a person’s menstrual cycle can fluctuate between Continue reading →


Why Should SMEs Outsource Their Washroom Services?

Washroom facilities are one of the most crucial ‘backstage’ areas of your business. In many ways, they represent who you are as a company, your attention to detail and your standards of hygiene. While it may be tempting to adopt a do-it-yourself attitude when it comes to maintaining these facilities, you may want to reconsider bringing your facilities management in-house. 

Although it’s been drummed into us since we were children, research suggests that we’re still not as good at hand hygiene as we should be. In fact, it is thought that 1 in 5 of us do not wash our hands after using the bathroom. Throughout our history, hygiene has had varying levels of priority within our lives. However, having reached a point where cleanliness was “next to godliness”, more and more of us...Continue reading →


The Impact Of Menstruation On Mental Health

It’s safe to say that, for the majority of women, menstruation is not a time of month that is eagerly awaited. Along with symptoms such as cramps and bloating, menstruation can also put a strain on a woman’s mental health, whether this be due to hormonal changes or environmental factors.  

While it might not be possible to completely eliminate the mental...Continue reading →


Should We Use Smart Washroom Technology

We accept the inexorable march of technology when it creeps into everyday conveniences, even if it often makes them less convenient. A fridge that tells you when you’ve run out of milk may not actually be more efficient than just looking in the fridge, but it sounds cool and science fictiony. And when every product on the market contains these features, you end up having to go with the flow. Try finding a new TV that...Continue reading →


Have an Environmentally Friendly Period

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest contributing factors to the decline in our environment - and the taboo subject of sanitary waste makes up a percentage of this. In the UK alone, 4.3 billion disposable sanitary products are used every year - and it’s estimated that 700,000 pantyliners, 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million sanitary towels are flushed down the toilet every single day. Flushed sanitary waste blocks...Continue reading →



How Does Brand Trust Relate to COVID-19

2020 has, without a doubt, been a year that will go down in memory and in history for many reasons. But one of the most interesting ways in which COVID, lockdown and new health and safety restrictions have impacted our lives, is through our relationship as consumers and businesses with the brands and names we choose to associate ourselves with.

It’s not as though...Continue reading →


Are Periods Holding Women Back?

For many years, women taking a daily birth control pill have been advised to go pill-free for a week every month, and experience a monthly bleed that is akin to a normal period. However, when using other methods of hormonal contraception (such as the implant), some women have experienced an entire cessation of monthly bleeding, and the medical community is now embracing the idea that women needn’t Continue reading →


How Can Washroom Services Improve Your Employees’ Work Environment

Being an employer includes an entire host of responsibilities, some far more demanding than others. Arguably, however, one of the most important parts of being an employer is the wellbeing of your employees. A positive work environment can lead to a more relaxed and productive atmosphere, as well as good company culture. 

Usually when we talk about employee...Continue reading →


Your Menstrual Cycle Explained

Whenever we discuss menstruation or anything to do with menstrual health, the general “flow” of the conversation will usually turn towards all the negative things that we associate with the experience. And considering that for many people periods come with the unwelcome baggage of pain, mood swings and cravings, it’s certainly understandable that seeking out the positives is not at the top of most people’s...Continue reading →


The Benefits of Exercising During Your Period

On a list of activities that most people would avoid at all costs during menstruation, exercise (or even, any kind of movement) is likely to sit at number one. Hot water bottles, chocolate and movie nights are a much more attractive alternative than sweating away at the gym when your body is running you ragged. 

But as much as it may pain us to admit it, exercise...Continue reading →


What Are We Doing to Tackle Period Taboos?

As a culture, we’re not particularly good at discussing our bodily functions, regardless of what they may be. However, it cannot be denied that menstruation comes with its own particular brand of taboo. When it comes to using the toilet, we may not do our business in public, for example, but we have no qualms about buying toilet paper out in the open or even telling a friend, co-worker or even a total stranger that you...Continue reading →


How Has Lockdown Affected Your Menstrual Cycle

There’s no denying it, lockdown has affected us all, whether that be positively or negatively. Some of us are tearing our hair out wishing for freedom, whereas others are enjoying having no choice but to stay home and unwind. But the one thing we can all agree on is that our routines have changed significantly in the last couple of months. 

But forcing yourself into...Continue reading →


Are Washroom Services Safe During Coronavirus

As lockdown begins to ease, many of us are out and about, whether it’s to the beach, for a walk with friends or to a non-essential shop for the first time in months. And along with all the other considerations that we must take into account when leaving the house, one of the most important questions on people’s minds is whether or not public toilets will be safe or hygienic to use whilst we are still in the midst of...Continue reading →
