Menstrual Pads - Reusable Cloth (off-cuts, lucky dip colours)

2 items left

Reusable period products are one of the easiest ways to make a difference for the environment.

Our new materials upcycled pads are made from offcuts of new fabrics and PUL, and contain a mixture of absorbent bamboo/cotton layers inside, and soft flannel or brushed cotton outside. Because they are offcuts, it’s a surprise what colours or patterns you’ll get.

You know that the way your body experiences a period is different to other people’s. One person’s heavy day might be the same as another person’s medium-light day. And what length of pad you prefer might be the same for your whole period, or be different between heavy days and light days. So we have a range of different absorbencies, and several different pad lengths, for you to choose from.

Our reusable cloth pads are designed to be used over and over again for a long time. They are made of high quality materials, and are discreet and comfortable. They are eco-friendly and easy to wash.

One of their best features is that it takes only a few months for them to work out cheaper than buying single use disposable sanitary products each month. So you can save money AND save the planet!

They are easy to clean: just rinse or soak in cold water, then machine wash and hang up to dry.

They are easy to use: Fold wings around your underwear and close the snap button.

Plus a Pad Carry Bag is also available to purchase.
