- great as a gift- comes in a beautiful paper packaging
- with a good care, your pad will last 5 years or more
Food for thoughts:
- Did you know that disposable menstrual products are often bleached with chlorine? Chlorine produces dioxins which can cause cancer or developmental, immunological or even reproductive effects.
- Many women experience allergies when using disposables.
- Every woman generate throughout her menstruating career about 150 kg of disposable waste!
- 1 disposable pad is equal to 4 plastic bags and takes up to 800 years to decompost!
How to use:
- soak used pads in cold water, wash by hand or in machine at 40° or less
- dry on the washing line for the best results (preferably in direct sunlight) or tumble dry on low heat
- use as any other menstrual pads
- with a Gould care, it will last for at least 5 years 🙂
