Why are they eco-friendly?
What products are the fifth most common item found on Europe’s beaches? What are more widespread than single-use coffee cups, cutlery or straws?
That's right, sanitary products.
Sanitary products account for 200,000 tonnes of waste ending up in UK landfill every year.
Around 2.5 million tampons, 1.4 million pads and 700,000 panty liners are flushed every single day here in the UK!
A big-brand pack of 14 menstrual pads contains the same amount of plastic as five carrier bags.

These pads are eco-friendly as they are completely plastic free and reusable. Most reusable pads have PUL (a type of waterproof plastic) in them meaning eventually, at the end of their life, they still pollute the environment.
These pads are PUL free, plastic popper free and fully biodegradable.
What are they made from?
Cotton and bamboo with a metal stud press so your pad can be 100% plastic free.
Wash before use.
For gently used pads, rinse and put them in with your regular laundry load.
For heavily soaked pads, or to avoid staining, pre rinse in cold water (never hot) to wash out as much blood as possible then add to laundry.
It's always best to not allow your pad to dry out before washing to minimise staining.
