Periods…they are something that over half the population has to go through each month. A person can have over 450 periods in their lifetime, that's a lot of tampons and pads. In fact, over 200,000 tonnes of waste from menstrual products end up in landfills every year!
If you have already made some sustainable switches, like the ones mentioned in our previous blog post, you may also be wondering how to have an eco-friendly period. Well we have the ideal solution, period pants!
WUKA Period Pants are underwear that fully absorbs your period and doesn't let it leak, so you can wave goodbye to disposable pads and tampons. Each pair of WUKA Period Pants has a super absorbent gusset made up of many layers.
The middle layers absorb and lock in the blood, whilst the outer, moisture-wicking layers keep you feeling secure and dry. Each of the leak-proof layers are very breathable to reduce any smells and chance of infection.
