Good For You & Environment - These Brands Sell Sanitary Napkins & Pads That Are Sustainable

So it’s that time of the month, and these days we know how much plastic sanitary napkins and tampons (full of plastic) can and are choking our dumpyards, among other things, Lets not forget the rashes, irritation, and ickiness that comes with wearing plastic pads. Luckily there have been many innovations, and people who think the same way. From reusable pads made of cloth, to biodegradable ones, to pads made out of environmentally friendly materials, here’s our list of brands that are making sustainable pads.
