Our reusable pads set is a great introduction to zero waste periods, helping you to save money and have a more eco-friendly time of the month. Made from super soft organic bamboo cotton with a PUL backing to ensure there are no leaks, these small sized pads are approx 18 x 18cm, making them perfect as a back up to a menstrual cup/tampon or for light flow days (at the beginning and end of your period).
Once used, simply pop them in your washing machine and start using again. Full care instructions are included on the recycled card sleeve.
Each set includes 3 x panty liners. Choose from grey, black or candy colours!
Why make the switch to reusable pads?: On average, women typically use between 12,000 to 16,000 disposable menstrual products during their lifetime, and recent research suggests that this can add up to a staggering £18,000. But it's not just your wallet that takes a hit: most pads contain polyethylene plastic which is a harmful pollutant, and many tampons contain chemicals such as dioxin, chlorine and rayon. Sitting in landfill, these chemicals can soak into the earth and enter groundwater.
All of our items are sent using biodegradable, plastic-free packing materials.
Reusable menstrual pads don't have the adhesive strip of disposable pads, so they need to be used slightly differently. The type of underwear you wear them with can make all the difference for helping to keep them in place without glue! Choose wide gusset underwear which the pad can snugly wrap around to keep it in place. This is explained really well in this introductory guide to using reusable pads: http://clothpads.wordpress.com/slippage/
