Reusable Panty Liners by Eco Femme

Reduce Plastic
Organic
Supports good causes

Alternative for: disposable panty liners containing plastic 

Made from organic cotton and packaged in cardboard, these pads from Eco Femme tick a lot of boxes.

Almost all reusable cloth sanitary pads contain some sort of synthetic fabric to improve performance. These liners use a PUL leakproof cover which is a plastic-coated fabric, but Eco Femme do also sell a pad without PUL fabric. The range includes more than just panty liners, but we haven't tried these yet.

Packaging: cardboard

End of Life: Take the pad apart, the PUL layer will probably need to go into general waste, the cotton layers can be recycled or composted and the metal popper can be reused or recycled. Packing is recyclable.

"I searched for suitable reusable panty liners for a while as found most too thick for daily use. These pads from Eco Femme have been the answer"

Advantages...

  • Reduce waste
  • These pads have metal nickle-free poppers rather than plastic
  • Eco Femme pads are stitched by women in India proving an important livelihood opportunity
  • For each pad bought they donate another to a girl in rural India

Disadvantages...

  • Slightly more expense per use than disposable panty liners and require an up front investment making them an initially expensive switch

Costs...

I purchased these from Acala which sells 3 pads for £10.75. I previously used Carefree pantyliners which are 3.4p each. These pads are expected to last at least 75 washes so work out comparably at 4.7p per use.

Where to Buy...

A range of reusable pads, not just panty liners, are available direct from Eco Femme online shop and from UK retailer Acala

Tips...

  • There is a great FAQ section on the Eco Femme website
  • Wash before first use 
  • Do not tumble dry
