Reusable Bamboo Fiber Menstrual / Incontinence / Postpartum Pad Set
If you are looking to reduce your plastic footprint, look no further than tweaking your menstrual routine. Switching from single use pads and tampons to reusable menstrual pads can have a huge impact on the amount of plastic that ends up in the landfill.
On average a woman will use between 12,000 to 15,000 pads in her lifetime. Each pad is made up of approximately 90% plastic and is equivalent to 4 plastic bags. In her lifetime, a woman will spend approximately $9,400 on menstrual products. That's a lot of money and a lot of plastic.

How to take care of your pads:
These pads are machine washable and dryable. We recommend using cold or warm water to avoid stains from setting in. If you want to extend their life, wash in a gentle cycle or wash by hand and tumble dry or hang to dry.
How to wear:
The white toweling fabric goes against your skin and the patterned fabric goes against the underwear. Be sure to snap the wings around the gusset. We recommend you use underwear that fit snugly and have a wide gusset.
How to store your pads:
Be sure that the pads are completely dry before storing them. Fold them into tiny squares by folding the ends in and then snapping them closed.
