Ever wondered what your pantyliners are made of ? Big brands use chemicals, bleached materials and a lot of plastic when making their versions. I decided to make the change a few months ago and I have saved money, time and effort, I also feel better as I am helping the planet.
Make the switch to eco friendly bamboo reusable sanitary pads from Floating Lotus, they are vegan, cruelty free, made from microfibre, bamboo and pul.
These pads can last up to 2-5 years if cared for, its so easy, all you have you do is wash it but firstly remove the period stain with cold water then add to your dark clothes wash, wash at 30-40 degrees then allow to air dry, do not put them in the dryer.
We as woman spend lots of money on pads, which require changing them every few hours, and then ends up in the bin and we forget about it, but this then goes to a waste land can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade, which is insane.
Below I will explain what each Floating Lotus pad consists off and the purpose of each material used.
Microfibre - microfibre sheets can be more durable than cotton sheets, as natural fibres particularly less expensive cotton options can break down more easily with frequent washes. Inside the pads are layers of absorbent microfibre, they are super-absorbent to ensure you're secure, dry and comfortable during your period.
Bamboo - is the soft charcoal grey layer, it's soft, gentle, breathable, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-odour, so no more nasty smells and less changing throughout the day.
Pul - this is the bottom layer of your pads and it's durable and waterproof, so it will keep you leak free.
Make the change with me and let's start making the right step towards reducing plastic waste and support our planet and environment.
