Do good and reduce waste by using our reusable sanitary care products
Ever year, we throw away 45 billion sanitary products. And that’s nothing to feel guilty about – despite what tax laws say, good sanitary products are an essential part of a woman’s self-care routine. But it’s worth noting that there are other options that could be better for the environment, and better for your health and wellbeing too, like our reusable cotton sanitary pad.
The awesome people over at Eco Femme create reusable, 100% cotton pads. They’re easy to clean and have the added bonus of helping to fund menstrual health education classes for young women who don’t have access to these services. Every pad you purchase from Eco Femme via the WasteNot plastic free shop includes a pad for pad donation to their social enterprise, so you’ll be supporting young women in India to have healthy and happy periods too. Hooray for women looking after women!
The Eco Femme Day Pad is made from unbleached Indian cotton and stitched entirely in one piece with 5 layers of cotton flannel and leakproof sides for added protection.
Plastic free pads like this one can last you for up to 5 years and, thanks to the fact they’re made of cotton, they’re also much more able to breath, which means less bacteria and a lower likelihood of unpleasant odours than their plastic counterparts.
To keep your pad clean, simply add to the laundry pile just like any other item of clothing. It really is that simple.
