The founders of Plastfree were tired of having to compromise effectiveness and efficiency for sustainability in their menstrual products. After two years of R&D, Plastfree created the highest absorbing biodegradable sanitary pad available. Giving you 5 x absorption & ultimate comfort during periods.
Live Consciously. The choice is yours!
- Discarded menstrual products are the fifth most common plastic waste product found in the ocean, and In 2018 alone, people in the U.S. disposed of 5.8 billion of these items.
- 85% of tampons contain Monstanto's 'cancer causing' glyphosate pesticide in it. Since cotton is an extremely pesticide and insecticide heavy crop.
- Most tampons contain chemicals such as dioxin, chlorine and rayon. While the products sit in landfills, these chemicals get soaked up by the earth and are released as pollution into groundwater and air.
- inorganic cotton has to be one of the most harmful crops to grow, yet it is the least talked about. Cotton is considered on of the world’s “thirstiest crops,” requiring six pints of water to grow just one little bud). The worst part may be the incredible amount of pesticides and insecticides required to produce them. Which is rapidly destroying our vital top soils. A non-renewable resource that takes at least a 100 years to form.
Even as I was in so much pain I was so excited when I opened one of the pads up for the first time!! Finally a pad that is big enough for me (please don’t ever change the size of these!) and it’s so comfortable. I don’t feel like I even have one on :)
Without odors! But it’s too bigger not comfortable!
This is probably one of the best sanitary products that I have used. They’re comfortable, don’t leak, don’t have a horrid perfume smell, and are good for the environment (unlike another brand I used to buy). They arrived super quick and with a lovely note.
These biodegradable pads are an absolute game-changer, and I seriously respect the brand itself. Normally I use pads made of plastic, which cause skin irritation and discomfort. These ones, on the other hand, are soft and kind to your skin. And you can feel good knowing that you’re not polluting the earth with your time of the month! All menstrual products should strive to be like Plastfree’s products. I have officially switched over to Plastfree, and will never buy another plastic pad again!
Good to hear this product is completely biodegradable .
Shocked to hear how much landfill a woman can contribute to in her lifetime by using regular pads.
