In an ever growing environmentally concerned society, it is important to research the products we buy to ensure their impact on a personal health level, human level and environmental level.
Today we will look into the eco-friendliness of reusable period pads and we will ask you dear reader: are your reusable period pads eco-friendly?
Against what society often portrays through production and consumption, the world is not made of infinite resources but rather finite resources. To continue production and consumption in the manner the world does now is of course not an option as it impacts the supply of raw materials, and is simply not sustainable!
Recent years have witnessed a crucial step in the right direction with more focus on sustainability and the re-manufacturing of existing products. Such is the case for the switch from disposable plastic pads and tampons to eco-friendly reusable sanitary pads and cup products.
As amazing as this switch and awareness is, it remains important to be a conscious consumer and research the composition and recycling options for products we buy.
Your eco reusable sanitary pads should have the potential of making things last by reusing materials over time whilst also diverting material waste from landfill pollution. So say goodbye to disposable period options for good as they contain plastics which do not biodegrate! Did you know they consist of 90% petroleum-based plastic?
Here at Floco, all our eco reusable sanitary pads are made from materials that contain no nasty chemicals or bleaches (yay). These materials make our pads more breathable and offer greater comfort than disposable due to the non-bulky layers of the pad.
Moreover, your eco-friendly reusable sanitary pads should be free of harmful chemicals and added fragrances (these are both bad for you and the environment). Indeed, disposable pads are full of odour neutralisers, dioxins, sodium polycrylate crystals (aka skin irritants) and fragrances which lead to allergic rashes, irritation and acne!!
Another thing you should look for when purchasing eco reusable sanitary pads is the lifespan of the eco-friendly reusable pad. Here at Floco, we guarantee a minimum lifespan of 2 years with a maximum lifespan of 8 years due to material specifications. With a conventional disposable period option, the use is single, non-degradable and non-recyclable. A complete no no!
So, why not head over to Floco, browse our amazing range of eco-friendly reusable sanitary pads and drop our team a message if you want more information? We are more than happy to help!
