Since I started using these reusable pads I have reduced so much waste and plastic. Not only that but investing in a few of these has saved me so much money from buying disposable menstrual products!
If cared for properly your pads should last between 3-5 years if not longer, saving a lot of waste from disposable pads. These pads are not compostable so they will need to be thrown away in your waste bin however they are a far better alternative to using tons and tons of tampons and plastic pads you would have used over the years.

Why Choose Reusable
I started using reusable menstrual products last year when I became so distraught with the amount of waste I was producing while on my period. Then I found out about reusable sanitary pads, I was so pleased that I could finally stop using all the tampons and plastic pads I was just throwing away every month!
Washable pads were one of the best ways I reduced my waste, it has literally changed my life! Not to mention saved me so much money, tampons and pads are expensive but this way I invested in a few reusable pads which I could just wash over and over again. It’s estimated that the average woman will use around 12000 – 15000 sanitary pads or menstrual products in a lifetime, think of the amount of money that would cost and the waste, the huge amount of waste and that’s just one person! Investing in these washable pads was one of the best things I have ever done on my plastic free journey.
It took some getting used to wearing pads that I would wash rather than throw away but I can tell you they are so much more comfortable than the disposable plastic pads, I will never go back it’s just so much better.
How To Use
Place the pad white fleece facing up and use popper accordingly to adjust size.
Change pad every 3-4 hours.
Once used we recommend you rinse them through to prevent stains, if not practical then before washing rinse through several times. If the stain still persists then we recommend using a natural stain remover such as living naturally stain stick.
The living naturally stain stick is available to buy from us.
We recommend washing the reusable pad at 40 degrees as higher temperatures may set stains in place. Don’t use fabric softener.
Once washed leave the washed pad to air dry as tumble drying can reduce the life span of the pad.
