If you haven’t yet tried reusable menstrual products that are safe for your body and the environment challenge yourself to give them a go.
Almost 4.2 million Australian women aged between 14-54 would have purchased menstrual products (tampons, sanitary pads, panty liners) in the last month. You can only imagine the amount of waste these disposable options will produce in a year (~45,000 tonnes) from women with regular menstrual cycles.
Disposable tampons and pads can take hundreds of years to decompose and the toxic chemicals released into the earth and air is harmful on the environment, animals and humans. This is not only an Australian issue but a worldwide concern that should be taken seriously. Hannahpads have a lifespan of 2-3 years or longer depending on personal use and care. In comparison to disposables, the organic cotton material can take about 12 months to biodegrade and compost.
