Ready to make moves towards cloth pads and plastic free periods? This full cycle kit has everything you’ll need!
A scary fact – producers of feminine hygiene products are not required to list all of the ingredients used in their products because they are not considered medical devices. One things for sure though – they usually contain a lot plastic! From tampons to liner pads, on average women use around 14,000 disposable feminine hygiene products in a lifetime, which means a lot of plastic pollution heading to landfills, and a lot of plastic heading to your lower regions too. Yikes!
No woman should feel guilty for looking after herself during her menstrual cycle in any way she chooses, but if you’re committed to creating a zero waste home, then banning the plastic from your nether regions is a great place to start – both for you and for the environment.
Our plastic free sanitary pad set is made by EcoFemme, a social enterprise based in India who create beautiful sanitary products made from pure ingredients. They also offer an awesome pad for pad scheme, so every purchase you make from them helps to contribute to funding menstrual health education classes and products for local women.
This plastic free sanitary pad set contains:
2 Day Pads
2 Day Pad Plus
1 Night Pad
1 Travel Pouch (for storing and transporting clean or used pads)
Care Instructions & Tips
These pads can be used alongside a menstrual cup or using between periods. They also come with a metal popper close for added protection.
To clean your plastic free pads, simply add them to your normal clothes wash. You can pre soak in some bi-carb of soda if you’re worried about stains. With periods in the bag you’ll be well on your way to a zero waste home and bathroom.
