Earthwise Reusable Sanitary Pads | Butterflies (L)
These eco friendly, zero-waste reusable sanitary pads are sure way to reduce monthly waste.
Tampons, pads and panty liners along with their packaging and individual wrapping generate more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year, and they all contain plastic – in fact, pads are around 90% plastic! The average user throws away an astonishing 125 to 150kg of tampons, pads and applicators in their lifetime.
Reusable sanitary pads and/or menstrual cups are not only sustainable, and healthier alternatives, but also a more cost-effective option over time. (As are most reusable items)
They are easy to look after, as you simply wash, dry and go again.
1. Wash all new pads 1-2 times before first use at 40 or less degrees.
2. After use, treat stains before washing - lemon juice and/or soaking in cold salty water is particularly helpful.
3. Hang out to dry in the sunshine, or in a sunny spot indoors. Don't dry your pads on a direct heat source such as a radiator, heated airer or tumble drier. It will degrade a waterproof fabric.
