Reusable Period Pads That Are Great For You and The Planet

If you’re someone who has a period, you must have reusable period pads on hand at all times! However, all reusable period pads are not created equal. Some pads use cotton while others use synthetic materials. Synthetic materials can be harmful to the body as they contain plastic and don’t breathe, creating the perfect environment for infections. Meanwhile, cotton is hypoallergenic, breathable, soft, and absorbent. However, traditional cotton requires lots of harmful chemicals and pesticides to grow which can also be harmful to the body.

The best reusable period pads use organic cotton, which has all of cotton’s great attributes but is also free from chemicals and pesticides. Here are the best options on the market right now.
