There’s an easier, more sustainable way to go through your period. That time of the month no longer has to be filled with disposable tampons and sanitary towels. Aside from the plastic contents of absorbent sanitary products, there are trace levels of dioxins present. Dioxin is one of the most dangerous chemicals in the world and although we are talking trace amounts in some tampons, considering we use thousands of them in our lifetime, exposure should be something to be considered. Thankfully, we have a collection of alternatives at &Keep so you can turn your time of the month into a plastic free period. Our soft organic cotton reusable sanitary pads (by Honour Your Flow) are incredibly comfortable and deliver a ‘you won't know you’re wearing them’ feel. Simply stow them in a small carry pouch and pop in the washing machine. The incredibly popular Mooncup is another game changer. As menstrual cups go, these are by far the most popular and come in two different sizes. They’re safe to use for up to eight hours, are incredibly easy to use and make travelling while on your period simple, easy and stress free. Period pants are an excellent way to feel comfortable and secure when it's your time of the month. Available in a variety of styles and flows, they are a hassle free approach to plastic-free periods. They can be washed in the washing machine and look just like ordinary knickers. They are also great for postpartum discharge, endometriosis flow and bladder leaks. Plastic-free periods have been revolutionised with these incredible products!
