Did you know an estimated 500 million people lack access to menstrual products? This is an outrageous statistic as, despite the annoyance monthly menstruation brings, there's one thing we can all agree on - hygiene is crucial.
The plethora of female hygiene products available today can sometimes make the decision-making process overwhelming, but we're here to help you decide which are best for you (and why).
From organic cotton pads to period underwear, we'll dive deep into the world of female hygiene, discussing the benefits of choosing organic, eco-friendly products while also shining a light on the ever-growing popularity of period underwear.
Are you currently using conventional menstrual products like disposable pads or tampons? Did you know these products are made with non-organic materials like synthetic fibers, plastics, and chemicals that can harm the environment and your body?
The good news is there are now more options for eco-friendly and organic menstruation products that are safe, healthy, and sustainable.
When you invest in organic products for your period, you're not just doing your part to reduce waste and pollution. You also protect your body from the potential health risks of conventional menstrual products. These products often contain synthetic fragrances, bleaches, and absorbents. All of these can cause irritation, allergies, and even infections.
Conversely, reusable hygiene products help reduce waste. They're made with organic and cotton materials that are gentle on your skin and the environment.
Plus, they're washable and can last for years, unlike disposable products that decompose in landfills and take hundreds of years. You save money while saving the Earth. And who doesn't love a good win-win like that?
The bottom line? By investing in sustainable menstruation products, you're taking care of your health and contributing to a greener and healthier planet.
Unsure where to start when looking for sustainable menstruation products? You've likely seen ads for reusable pads and period underwear. But what are they, how do you use them, and are they the right products for you? Below you'll find a brief breakdown of some of the best menstrual products to consider.
Organic Cotton Pads
Organic cotton pads are an excellent eco-friendly alternative to regular sanitary pads. Made from 100% pure organic cotton, they are free from harmful chemicals, dyes, and fragrances, which can often cause irritation or worse.
Because they're biodegradable, they're better for the environment and can reduce waste. They're easy to use and can be disposed of safely in a compost bin or wrapped up and thrown away in a rubbish bag. And best of all, our period pads offer side-leak protection and breathable leak-proof backing.

Organic Reusable Pads
Organic reusable pads are becoming increasingly popular for women looking for an eco-friendly and affordable alternative to traditional disposable pads. These pads are made from top-quality organic cotton, which is great for sensitive skin. They come in different pad sizes, shapes, and thicknesses, so you can choose one that fits your period needs.
Using organic reusable pads is super easy, too. All you have to do is place them in your underwear, secure them in place with snaps, and wear them as normal. When you're finished, simply wash them in cold water and let them air dry for next time.
The benefits of using organic reusable pads go far beyond saving the planet. They are cost-effective in the long run, hypoallergenic, and reduce the risk of toxic shock syndrome compared to their disposable counterparts. Plus, as mentioned, they're sustainable - no more contributing to landfills with plastic pads that can take hundreds of years to break down.

Don't love the feeling of pads or tampons? Menstrual cups are becoming a popular alternative to traditional pads and tampons. They're small, bell-shaped cups made of medical-grade silicone that can be inserted into the vagina to collect menstrual blood.
To use them, simply fold and insert them; they will sit comfortably in place for up to 12 hours. When removing, simply pinch the base and empty the contents into the toilet or sink.
The benefits of choosing menstrual cups are plentiful. They're:
- Able to hold more liquid than traditional products
Plus, since they don't absorb moisture, they won't dry out the vaginal canal like tampons can. Give them a go, and you might just find your new period companion!

Organic Period Underwear
These comfy undies come with built-in layers of organic cotton sheets (at least, that's how ours are made) that are both reusable and washable, making them an eco-friendly alternative to traditional pads and tampons. Just wear them like regular underwear, and voila! You're protected from leaks and stains.
They are made from breathable materials like organic cotton and bamboo that help regulate body temperature and prevent odors. The best part? No more wastage, which means less harm to mother nature, and you'll save a ton of money in the long run.
