Alternative for: disposable sanitary products made of plastic

If you're not quite ready to make the switch to washable sanitary pads, or even period pants, then these plastic-free pads and tampons from NatraCare are a good alternative. These plastic-free sanitary products are also much healthier than regular disposable products, which are made from plastic.

Plastic-free and made with organic cotton, the pads are actually much more comfy than regular pads and just as leak-free.

Packaging: cardboard box

End of Life: packaging: recyclable / product and wrappers: compostable

 Recommended by Isabel M.

"I have tested NatraCare's panty liners and ultra regular winged pads. These pads are a lot less sweaty than regular disposable sanitary pads making them much more comfortable. I now use these pads as a back up when I haven't quite got my washable pads routine right!"

Advantages...

  • 100% plastic-free
  • Made from organic cotton, fluffed wood pulp and a plant-based bioplastic (which provides the waterproofing) 
  • Pads, wrappers and tampons can be composted at home
  • Range includes panty liners, ultra pads, tampons (with plastic-free applicator), maternity and incontinence pads
  • Fragrance free
  • Certified Vegan Approved by the Vegetarian Society

Disadvantages...

  • For the winged pads, the backing paper on the sticky parts is a bit more of a faff to remove when compared to brands like Bodyform or Always

Costs...

These are competitively price at 14.9p per pad for the Ultra winged pads these worked out only 1p more expensive than my old preferred brand.

Where to Buy...

Available at Waitrose stores, and online at Ocado, and Ethical Supermarket
