Every year, a woman with periods will use over 200 tampons or pads. All those pads, liners and tampons and their plastic packaging end up in landfill – and there’s a financial cost as well as the environmental price.
There has got to be a better way, right?
Abso-bloody-lutely there is!
OUR THREE FAV WAYS TO PERIOD-SMART!
Many people use a mix of the below – heavy days may be simpler to handle with traditional pad + tampon combos, but on lighter days you can go all day with your cup in, or period undies on – and completely forget you have your period! Freeeedooom!!!
Soft, comfortable, totally leak-proof and with a great fit, these period undies will revolutionise the way you live. Perfect for solo use on lighter flow days, comfort when you are sleeping, or as back up for heavy days! They’re designed to be popped in the washing machine just like your other knickers. These are also ideal incontinence pants if you are living with bladder leakage.
The absorbant layer is slimmer than most thin pads, and softer, so you hardly know you are wearing these knickers – and yet, you’re all set for spotting free periods!
THE PROOF: MODIBODI PERIOD UNDIES WORK
If you still have questions, the awesome One Million Women site has a brilliant article on ‘Everything you ever wanted to know about menstrual underwear‘.
We’ll leave you with this quote from ModiBodi Founder, Kristy Chong:
“A FEW PAIRS OF MODIBODI UNDERWEAR CAN REPLACE HUNDREDS OF DISPOSABLE FEMININE HYGIENE PRODUCTS PER YEAR – SO EVERY WOMAN USING A REUSABLE SOLUTION WOULD SAVE UP TO 7600 ITEMS FROM LANDFILL, AS WELL AS THEIR PACKAGING.”
