They’re better for the environment…Reusable sanitary pads are a much better choice for the environment than single-use disposable sanitary pads. During a person's lifetime, they will use more than 11,000 tampons or pads and this has an astronomical impact on our environment. The plastics used in a pad will take hundreds of years to decompose. Similarly, the process of manufacturing disposable sanitary products also contributes more to polluting our environment. Switching to reusable sanitary products will have a tremendously positive impact on our environment and make a huge difference.They’re better for your body…Disposable pads and tampons are full of harmful chemicals which you are exposing to one of the most sensitive and absorbent parts of your body. With tampons having the added risk of toxic shock syndrome, Free Flow’s reusable sanitary pads are much safer with no toxins or risks. Reusable sanitary pads are also viewed by many to be much more comfortable than disposables. This is due to them being made from much more breathable materials like cloth, preventing itchiness and sweatiness.They save you money…Using reusable sanitary pads is much more economically viable. In your lifetime you could have on average around 450 menstrual cycles which adds up to approximately 12,000-15,000 disposable products to buy. This means periods cost us thousands of pounds in disposable products in our lifetime. However, by using reusable sanitary products this cost can be dramatically reduced as reusable pads will last to around 5-10 years depending on how well they are cared for. Granted, reusable sanitary products have a larger initial cost but they last a great deal longer.
