A great starter kit of reusable menstrual pads, containing a mix of sizes from popular brand Eco Femme.
The pads are made from soft cotton flannelette, with a hidden layer of PUL for security against leaks. They fasten underneath with a metal popper. Each size of pad comes in a different colour, so that you can easily tell them apart. Wear them with the plain side next to your body, and the printed side facing your underwear.
The kit contains 2 x panty liners, 2 x day pads, 2 x day pad plus pads, 1 x night pad, 1 x canvas travel pouch, plus a menstrual cycle tracking chart and full care and use instructions.
The Eco Femme pads are made by a women's empowerment project in India, which not only gives employment and training to Indian women in a rural area, but also works with them to educate local girls and women about their menstrual cycle and menstrual hygiene. For every pad sold in the UK, £1 has been donated to Eco Femme for their Pad 4 Pad programme, which supplies free menstrual pads to Indian girls to help them remain in school.
