Women on average will use well over 10,000 disposable sanitary products in their lifetime. All of which end up in landfill or wreaking havoc in the sea, taking several hundreds of years to decompose. They are therefore not quite as ‘disposable’ as we may initially think.
Disposable sanitary items are also usually full of nasty chemicals, including bleach (to whiten them) and even plastic, so they aren’t even great for our lady bits either.
Enter- Reusable Cloth Pads
These reusable cloth pads by Earthwise are the perfect solution to disposables. They are used very similarly to a disposable sanitary towel, but instead of sticking to your pants, they are secured with a plastic push button. With good care these pads will last years, which will dramatically cut down on your waste, but also save you lots of money.
Each pad consists of a leakproof PUL backing layer in a colour or print (as pictured), a microfibre core, and a top layer of white microfleece next to the skin, which is literally like a soft cloud for your bits.
These small pads are designed for spotting, light flow or as cup/sponge back up. They can also be used as a pantyliner for incontinence or daily discharge.
There are two popper settings on the wing to give a good fit on your underwear.
