They are a danger to marine life who might mistake them for food and end up with a tummy full of plastic. Have a look at our environmentally friendly sanitary products and see how easy it will be for you to make the change.
Eco-friendly Feminine Hygiene
We are slowly destroying our planet and there are steps that we can take every day that will protect the world around us whilst saving us money and being kind to our skin.

What are my options?
The main options for menstrual products are:
Reusable cloth pads
Cloth menstrual pads are very popular, especially amongst cloth nappy users.
Reusable cloth pads are shaped very similarly to the disposable pads that you may be used to.
There are many different absorbent fabrics used for reusable menstrual pads, cotton, fleece, bamboo being a few of them.
Cloth pads are very comfortable to wear. Our customers report that they have no chafing or irritation with reusable cloth and the pads stay put in their underwear.
To build a stash, think about how you normally protect yourself during your period. Do you start with a pant liner then move to a heavy-duty pad as your menstrual flow increases?
Speak to our knowledgeable staff to help you work out which combinations might be best for you.
Everyone has a different period and menstrual flow of course, however, our team will be able to guide you should you need help to buy.
Washable menstrual pads are a great eco-friendly alternative to disposable pads.
You can have a waste-free period and not be one of those women that dispose of thousands of pads over a lifetime.
Reusable cups are becoming more mainstream now and rightly so.
Made from medical-grade silicone, a menstrual cup sits in the vagina during your menstrual cycle and collects the menstrual blood.
They are very kind to your vaginal environment as they don't dry out your vaginal walls.
There are various shapes of a reusable cup. Most have a stem that you can use to site the cup or to retrieve it.
Often women cut the stem off as they become used to handling, placing and removing their menstrual cup.
Tampons and disposable pads
