We are delighted to be able to bring you reusable period pads.
What are reusable period pads?
- Cloth fabric pads, with a pretty top side, an absorbent core and a leak-proof backing, all made from fabric.
- You do not throw them away but instead, wash and re-use them again and again.
Why use them???
1. You will reduce your menstrual cramps, infections and skin rashes.
If you suffer intense pain during your period and are using disposables, consider using alternatives like period pads, 100% organic cotton products or menstrual cups. Disposable pads also use plastics, which block airflow to your vagina, and not surprisingly, can encourage a painful rash. Disposables also use synthetic fibres like rayon, which are super-absorbent, but will also absorb all the moisture in your vagina, increasing your chances of severe pain and infections - especially if you are wearing one for long durations.
This means your vagina is a happier one and so, in turn, means a happier you.
If a happier vagina isn't awesome enough then you will love saving money!
Granted, reusables have a larger initial cost, but they last much, much longer. With proper care, cloth pads can last for years. Compare this to the disposable that has a lifespan of a few hours before it's thrown away, forcing you to buy more and more - all of them ending up in a landfill.
We recommend that you need 4/6 a day, for 5 days. However, because they can be washed and dried, you won't need to splurge out on as many pads (we can't guarantee you won't, like me, become addicted to buying the prints) as you can wash and re-wear them the same cycle.
It's estimated that 12 billion pads and 7 billion tampons a year in the United States alone. The plastics in a pad will take hundreds of years to decompose. The process of manufacturing these disposables also pollutes our waterways, air and animal habitats, not to mention all that plastic that ends up in the riverways and seas.
Switching to reusables does make a difference, one pad at a time!
4. It's sanitary, doesn't leak and easier to clean than you think.
When talking about reusable options, one is inevitably faced with the questions: "is it clean?" and "will it leak?" With the right maintenance, reusable products are just as sanitary. For cloth pads, most recommend soaking them overnight in water (you can add tea tree oil to sanitise further) and tossing them in the wash for a hot water cycle.
Forget those boring, bleached white synthetic products and packaging that are aimed at 'women'. We KNOW that it's not just women that bleed. Trans Males, non-binary, and genderqueer people bleed too!
Reusable options are bursting with colour, patterns, unique designs -- personality!!!!! Cloth pads have been worn by people for YEARS and YEARS and we were once shamed into hiding for a week because it was 'filthy' and not to be discussed. FUCK THAT!
SO GO FORTH AND CHOOSE TO RE-USE AND SAVE THE PLANET ONE PAD AT A TIME :)
Periods, menstruation, time of the month, whatever you call it, we are delighted to be able to offer you our very own reusable pants, pads and Wipes.
