Sanitary pads are around 90% plastic

Did you know that sanitary pads are around 90% plastic? Our periods cause us enough issues without having to hurt the environment too. Have you tried alternatives like cloth pads or menstrual cups for a plastic free period? There are also great plant based pads on the market now (mostly out of Africa using banana waste for example) but the wrapping is nearly always in plastic.

We’re yet to find plastic free tampons (the wrapping has proved nearly impossible due to safety regulations) – if you know of those, send us an email.
