Biodegradable Sanitary Pads
Why Plastic free?
Not only is plastic burying the earth’s surface under a layer of non-biodegradable waste, it is also saturating our oceans and soils with tiny plastic particles.Plastic particles are working their way into the food chain and placing many of mankind’s primary food sources and their respective ecosystems at risk of contamination and collapse. Plastic landfill sites also release harmful chemicals into surrounding soil. This contaminates groundwater and nearby water sources, impacting all those species that are reliant on them. There will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050.
Only ±10% of all the plastic packaging produced is recycled, while 40% ends up in landfills, and a shocking 32% finds its way into the environment as ‘mismanaged plastic waste’. This completely unsustainable situation will slowly but steadily contaminate the entire animal kingdom including ourselves.
The sanitary pad is an environmentally friendly corn and bamboo fibre sanitary napkin. The 3 layered structure includes a top layer of non-woven corn and bamboo fibre that is gentle on skin, a middle layer is a wood pulp absorption core and the third layer is corn fibre biodegradable leakage-free film.
The pad is simple, safe and easy to use, and the setting of the corn and bamboo fibre is natural antibacterial and biodegradable. Offering you a super soft, antibacterial and bacteriostatic, allergy free, eco-friendly product.
The average woman creates between 125kg-150kg of feminine product waste over her lifetime as normal pads are not biodegradable, which causes serious environmental degradation.
