The Battle Green reusable menstrual pads set is a great introduction to zero waste periods, helping you to save money and have a more eco-friendly time of the month. Made from super soft organic bamboo terry with a PUL backing to ensure there are no leaks, these small sized pads are approx 18 x 18cm, making them perfect as a back up to a menstrual cup/tampon or for light flow days (at the beginning and end of your period).
Each set includes 3 x panty liners. Our 'Candy Colours' set includes 1 x blue, 1 x pink and 1 x yellow pad. More colours available in our shop.
Why make the switch to reusable pads?: On average, women typically use between 12,000 to 16,000 disposable menstrual products during their lifetime, and recent research suggests that this can add up to a staggering £18,000. But it's not just your wallet that takes a hit: most pads contain polyethylene plastic which is a harmful pollutant, and many tampons contain chemicals such as dioxin, chlorine and rayon. Sitting in landfill, these chemicals can soak into the earth and enter groundwater.
All of our items are sent using biodegradable, plastic-free packing materials.
Candy Colours Reusable Panty Liners - Set of 3
Each set of pads comes with a recycled cardboard sleeve with the following care instructions. Please leave us a note at checkout if you do not need the cardboard sleeve and we won't include it with your order.
REUSABLE PADS CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Fold the soiled pad in half and place in a wet bag until you are ready to wash at the end of your period. You may want to use a net bag to keep the pads together in the wash. Do a cold rinse cycle first, before adding in some laundry detergent. Do not use fabric softener as this can make the pads repel liquid. Wash at 40ºC and air dry (you can tumble dry but this may slightly reduce the lifespan of the pads, and cause minor shrinkage). To minimise staining, you can use a natural stain remover such as baking soda. Sunlight is also a free, eco-friendly stain remover!
