Ecopads Australia, Rusable Menstrual Pads
ECOPADS AUSTRALIA is a social enterprise making perfectly imperfect cloth pads.
We stand for women’s health and choice where a cloth pad is sent to a girl or woman in need with every purchase.
Ecopads Australia cloth pads are comprised of four main components; the topper, core, backer and snaps. The fabrics we choose to work with are for their environmental stance and impact.
This fabric has direct contact with your skin and is usually made with cotton, minky fleece of flannel.
This is your layer of absorbency. For each different size pad, you may find that they vary in absorbency. This is to tailor for what girls and women need, and also what you might prefer.
The backing in our cloth pads always include a layer of polyurethane laminate, which provides extra security as a water resistant layer. The final layer is generally made with either cotton, corduroy or a fleece.
We use KAM snaps and eyelet fasteners to allow for ease of wearing. These serve as wings are used to keep your pad in place when worn.
The benefits of using cloth pads.
Disposables are the 3rd largest consumer items in landfill.
Cloth pads are generally more absorbent than disposables.
An average woman will spend at least $100 dollars on disposables per year. A Ecopads starter kit for cloth start at only $30.
Disposables run the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome and hazardous chemicals to be absorbed into the body.
They are much easier to clean than you might think.
A cloth pad lasts at least 1-3 years, depending on how well you look after them. Some women still have them going strong after 18!
Ecopads feel amazing against your skin and you can choose what type of materials work best if you have any allergies.
