Every single disposable sanitary towel ever used still exists today, whether in landfill, or floating about in our beautiful oceans. It is finally becoming accepted that plastics, and disposable items in general are bad for the world and all of its inhabitants.
Reusable menstrual products are a great way to reduce the amount of plastic waste you produce, whilst caring for your body too. There is much anecdotal evidence to suggest that cloth pads and menstrual cups can help to reduce your monthly bleed, minimise cramping and generally make your period a more positive experience.
Still not convinced? Give them a go and try for yourself.
Ngozi Sews is based in the south of the UK, making reusable menstrual pads from carefully selected fabrics to ensure a high quality product with a life expectancy of over 5 years. They are highly customisable, breathable and comfy, and more discreet than disposable sanitary towels. Their marked absorbency level is at least equivalent to that of disposables.
