These reusable sanitary pads are the ultimate zero waste switch you can make in your life! Most women throw away around 11,000 plastic-filled sanitary products, and spend over £1,000 throughout their lifetime! That is a hell of a lot of waste and money! Switching to reusable is kinder to your skin, your wallet and the planet! Reusable sanitary pads are a bit like reusable wipes - once you've tried them you'll wish you'd swapped earlier. These Moon Pads are made with 2 layers of 100% cotton flannel and an anti-pill fleece backing. The polyester fleece goes against your clothes to create a barrier between the absorbent cotton and your clothes. They are 8" long and 4" wide at the widest point. Absorbency is increased after the first few washes.
