Aren’t you tired of “Oops I sneezed” advertisements telling you that you should be ashamed of your stress incontinence? We are. One in three of all 20-85 year olds suffers from some sort of bladder weakness. Yes, that’s right – one in three. That’s around 6 million people in the UK alone. Yet we are still making a big effort to keep the issue on the down low, despite how glaringly prevalent it is. So what is it and why do we need to start talking about it?
To celebrate organic September we are giving away a Natracare period survival kit to see you through your next period!

Shopping can be an arduous task. Faced with a daunting wall of products, all claiming to be the best, our response can often be to grab the nearest, brightest or cheapest product. Like most people you are probably doing your shopping in a rush and just want to get it done.
But, the choices we make in the supermarket, at the local shops or when shopping online can have a huge impact on others. What may seem like a quick, simple decision may lead to a very dark reality for someone else.
Women’s sport is starting to create space for itself in a much deserved spotlight – finally! After the recent successes of the Women’s Euro Football Cup and currently the Women’s Rugby World Cup, women are starting to get better and rightly earned coverage. No doubt there is still an incredibly long way to go, but it’s good to see change. There is clearly a thirst to see all genders take to the sporting stage. This Saturday will offer one such event in Bristol. The hilly, windy streets will transform into a super-speed highway for cyclists taking part in the annual Bristol Grand Prix.

Big things are made of small things. A nucleus with electrons form an atom. Atoms make up matter. Matter makes up our world. Little things combine into big things.
In 2008 I reached a crossroads. Life had slowly taken me off my path and into the corporate world, and away from wildlife. It wasn’t a sudden change, but a slow process that happens over years and, although my life felt like an uncomfortable coat, like someone else’s life, I was barely aware of it. I was lucky – I had a chance to re-assess, correct, and do so without impacting a family, partner, or friends. I could do it and I did.

Women across the globe are celebrating World Breastfeeding Week this week (1st-7th August) for the 25th year. #WBW2017 raises awareness to promote, protect and support breastfeeding.

Can you imagine a billion elephants made of plastic? Or 25,000 Empire State Buildings made of plastic? According to research by US scientists, that is the equivalent to the weight of the all plastic that has ever been produced. Since humans first started making plastic only 65 years ago, a colossal 8.3 billion tons of plastic matter has been created.
Plastic is a completely man-made substance, which is deliberately produced by heating and processing finite crude oil and adding other chemicals to it. You’re using it now – it’s part of your phone, your computer, there’s probably some in your chair and it’s very likely that you’re also wearing some!
Natracare is thrilled to announce that the entire product range is now officially vegan certified, with all products in the range approved for use by those following a vegan lifestyle. Veganism – it is more than just a trend.
