If you’re looking for a way to reduce your environmental impact and save money on menstrual products, reusable pads are a great option. Reusable period pads are cloth pads that you can wash and reuse instead of throwing away after each use. They are made from soft and breathable materials like organic cotton, bamboo, or hemp, and they come in different sizes and absorbencies to suit your needs.
Reusable sanitary pads are easy to use and care for. You simply snap them onto your underwear with the button closure and change them when they are full. Then you rinse the cloth pad with cold water and toss in the washing machine with your regular laundry. Carry a wet bag with you to store them until you’re ready to wash them.
Our menstrual pads from Hannahpad and Juju have many benefits for your health and comfort.They are free of harmful chemicals like phthalates, parabens, bisphenols, and triclocarban that are often found in synthetic disposable pads. These chemicals can disrupt your hormones and irritate your skin. Reusable pads are also more breathable and gentle on your skin, preventing rashes, odours, and infections.
By switching to reusable pads, you can also make a positive difference for the planet and your wallet.According to Global Citizen, a person who menstruates will go through 5,000 to 15,000 pads and tampons in their lifetime and throw away 180kg of associated packaging. Reusable pads can last for years, saving you money and reducing waste, especially when you also use a menstrual cup.
