Now you can achieve a zero waste period.
Today we have BIG news to share! We've launched a sustainable alternative to single-use menstrual products -- Cloth Menstrual Pads. Without a doubt, maintaining a lifestyle that’s friendly to the environment can be challenging, but with our new product, it just got a little easier.
What are cloth menstrual pads?
Cloth menstrual pads are comfortable, reusable, leak-proof, and extra absorbent. They are held in place through the use of press-studs on the wings. Our cutting-edge triple-layer design makes it healthier for both you and the environment.
The top layer is charcoal bamboo fiber, which keeps you and your clothes mess-free, while also reducing the fungi and bacteria that produce odors.
The middle is a 2-layer, super-absorbent microfiber. This is a much more absorbent material than cotton, keeping you dry and comfortable for longer.
The bottom layer is a Waterproof PUL, this effectively water-resistant outer layer prevents leaks and spills.
How do you use cloth pads?
Our cloth pad features revolutionary strips that help to keep it in place. Simply wrap the wings around your underwear so the soft charcoal bamboo fabric is against your skin and snap into place. Change pad every 2-4 hours or as needed, the same as with disposable.
Every 6 cloth menstrual pads come with a waterproof PUL wet bag for easy storage. This will help you easily wrap the pad into the shape of a little envelope, button it up and pack it into the wet bag. Nice and discreet!
Our cloth pads come in four sizes:
To clean the pads, you can wash them by hand, or in the washing machine. Rinse until water runs clear and soak in cold water with mild detergent. Thorough drying is also important. You can do this on a clothesline, or in a tumble dryer on low heat.
Why should you try cloth menstrual pads?
Once you have a full set of cloth menstrual pads, you’ll have reliable menstrual protection for years to come. Most reusable menstrual pads are made to last for five years, but many people report that their pads have lasted much longer!
The average woman uses between 12,000 to 16,000 disposable pads, panty-liners, and tampons in her lifetime. These often end up in landfills, where they take many years to decompose. By switching to reusable cloth pads, you’ll save over 12,000 disposable from the landfill! That’s a huge impact for just one person, so imagine how huge it will be as more and more people switch to reusables!
Cloth menstrual pads are free from irritating materials, so you can avoid unnecessary exposure to the synthetic ingredients in disposable pads and tampons.
That sweaty, itchy feeling of sitting in a disposable pad is a thing of the past! The synthetic plastic webbing will be a distant memory when you try a charcoal bamboo menstrual pad.
Reusable cloth pads can be a game changer when it comes to handling your period. They are more breathable than disposable pads, more cost effective, and they’re better for the environment. What’s not to love?
