I’m passionate about choosing natural sanitary protection. They are safer for you and safer for the environment. Every year, over 45 billion sanitary pads are disposed of – most are full of synthetic materials and do not break down in the earth for hundreds of years. We do have alternative choices, sanitary pads do not have to be disposable, check out this fabulous funky range from Bloom and Nora.
Great quality and environmentally friendly cloth sanitary pads that allow you to have a cycle without irritations from harsh chemicals. Perfect if you prefer natural fabrics next to your skin. They also save you money too! Ethically made right here in the UK, Bloom & Nora have created two types of sanitary pad and some great accessories:
Bloom Reusable Sanitary Pads
These are for those who love bold and beautiful colours, they will brighten up your dreary period days. Made with bamboo which is kind to sensitive skin and allows skin to breathe, the unique stay dry binding is a barrier against leaks and keeps everything in the fully absorbent bamboo core.
You can choose from 4 different sizes, mini, midi, maxi and mighty to fit your perfect shape and flow. Reusable sanitary pads are more absorbent than disposable ones, so they should last that bit longer between 4-6 hours, and the mighty pads are designed to see you comfortably through the night.
You can purchase the pads individually or as small or larger set.
Nora Reusable Sanitary Pads
If bright-whites are more your cup of tea, then Nora’s are for you. They have a soft stay dry interior that repels stains and will keep them looking in tip-top condition for years to come. This makes them suitable for light incontinence, and the super-soft stay dry binding gives maximum performance. These also come in 4 sizes to fit your individual needs and you simply hand rinse in cold water immediately after use and wash within 48 hours.
You can also purchase these pads individually or as small or larger set.
Waterproof Bathroom Bag
Bloom & Nora have also created a great way of storing your pads until they can be washed, in their lovely little zipped waterproof bag. It’s a great innovation as you can just pop the whole thing in the wash with your pads (opened of course) and they will tumble out refreshed and ready to go for another cycle.
It’s available in blue or pink and has a poppered strap enabling you to hang it over a rail or hook out of reach, and it can store up to 10 pads at a time.
You can also purchase a lovely Christmas Gift Set, the Limited Edition Mixed Christmas Gift Pack is the perfect introduction to the world of reusable sanitary pads and lovingly gift wrapped for Christmas. Buy yours here:
