Bloom and Nora Reusable Sanitary Pads for an Eco Friendly Period

Bloom and Nora Reusable Sanitary Pads for an Eco Friendly Period

Have you heard about reusable sanitary pads yet? It’s hard to miss the growing shift in attitudes towards single use plastic items, all around us people are switching to reusable straws, reusable coffee cups and reusable water bottles. Maybe you haven’t heard of reusable sanitary pads yet or maybe you still need a little convincing to give them a try? Well here at Bloom and Nora we are on a mission to show everyone how easy it is to have an eco-friendly period with our award winning Bloom and Nora reusable sanitary pads and accessories.

Why Reusable Sanitary Pads?

Single use sanitary products have a devastating impact on our environment with some pads containing the equivalent of as much as 4 supermarket carrier bags. The average woman is estimated to use over 10,000 single use sanitary products in her lifetime that’s 40,000+ carrier bags!! That’s a huge amount of plastic that will be thrown away and potentially flushed into our oceans. Not to mention the awful damage this causes to marine life, many of these products are frequently found washed up and littering our beaches. Not something you want to see on a day out at the seaside. By switching to Bloom & Nora reusable sanitary pads, you can make a difference to all of this.

Reusable Sanitary Pads are more comfortable

Fed up with sweaty, plastic pads? Partial to getting the odd surprise bikini wax from their ‘secure’ wings? Reusable sanitary pads are a game changer. Our soft fabrics are breathable, cool and comfortable. Once you try them you won’t go back.

Reusable Sanitary pads are toxin free

Did you know disposable pad manufacturers don’t need to list their ingredients as they are classed as medical products, so who knows what’s hiding inside. Our reusable sanitary pads have their own Oekotex certificate meaning that there are no irritating chemicals or fragrances at all in the pads or more importantly, next to your skin!

Reusable Sanitary Pads perform better than disposables

Do you trust your current sanitary pads? Do you curse them every time it’s time to change because you’ve had another leak and that’s another pair of pants ruined? ‘’I worked out I use approx 260 sanitary pads a year (the big thick ones and normal flow pads). But with just 12 (washable) pads a month I am managing perfectly and they wash and dry really easily. I've also had less leakage issues and they are so comfy! I'm a complete convert ‘’ – Elfmuchkin, Instagram. Our Bloom and Nora reusable sanitary pads are cool, comfortable and designed so that you can be confident while on your period without worrying about leaks, even overnight.

Reusable sanitary pads are cheaper than disposables

A woman can spend in the region of £4000 in her lifetime on disposable sanitary products.  A full kit of Bloom and Nora reusable sanitary pads will cost you less than £100 and last for 10 years or longer if you don't tumble dry them. A huge saving in comparison.

A kit of Bloom and Nora reusable sanitary pads will give you enough pads to last you a whole period This assumes you will do one laundry load during your period. You can invest in more if you’d prefer to wash less frequently but, either way, you will still be saving.

Reusable Sanitary Pads are easy to use, easy to store and easy to wash

Bloom and Nora reusable sanitary pads have secure popper fastenings that stay put in your underwear and won’t fold back on themselves or accidentally stick to your bits...ouch!

We have 4 pads for all shapes, sizes and flows, mini, midi, maxi and mighty.

When it’s time to change, simply rinse the used pad in cold water and store in a waterproof bag until it’s time to wash, then pop them on a 40-degree wash with the rest of your smalls.

Our handy out and about bags are perfect for changing your pads while on the go too, with two separate waterproof compartments to keep your used and unused pads separate.
