Your Plastic Free Period solution - washable & sustainable
WUKA Basics™ Thong Period Pants look and feel like your regular underwear, but have the power to absorb spotting, light leaks and discharge.
Period pants look and feel like your regular underwear but they are leakproof underwear, which means you don't have to wear a pad, a tampon or menstrual cup if you wear them during your period.
This Thong has a light absorbency, and should be used as a panty liner replacement, absorbing spotting, discharge and works well as a 'back up' with a reusable menstrual cup or tampon.
award-winning Period Pants are 100% organic, vegan, reusable and sustainable! They are certified by the Better Cotton Initiative. The cotton used is produced by farmers who care for the environment and minimise the negative effects of fertilisers and pesticides. They also care for the water, soil health and natural habitats, producing the most sustainable cotton for these pants as possible.
Sustainable periods are not a luxury. Every WUKA prevents over 200 disposables from going to landfill with every pair. Wear, wash, reuse.
WUKA are vegan approved and registered with the Vegan Society.
WUKA can be used for many purposes from periods to postpartum discharge, endometriosis flow and bladder leaks.
Sizing: For sizes 4-20. Please refer to the size guide picture.
The XXS (age 9-10), XS and S sizes are also great for tweens and teens experiencing their first periods.
We recommend sizing up in our Basics range, as they come up a little smaller than the Tencel pants (Midi, High Waist, Boxer Short).
Care: Always rinse after use to prevent staining. Hand or machine wash at 40°.
As the underwear has several layers, it takes a longer time to dry than lingerie. Ensure that your underwear has gone through full spin. This decreases the time to dry your underwear. For quick drying results, give it an extra spin. You can also put your underwear in the airing cupboard, by the radiator or dry in the sun.
No tumble drying, no fabric softener.
Please note: For health and hygiene reasons, we are unable to accept the return of underwear for exchange or refund.
The average woman has her period once a month for 40 years of her life, meaning she spends 6.5 years of her life on her period. It’s estimated that the average woman will use over 10,000 disposable menstrual products during her lifetime. Some brands of disposable sanitary pads are made up of 90% plastic, which is about the same amount as four carrier bags. Many products are (incorrectly!) flushed down the toilet so they end up directly in our waterways.
Choose to reuse, saving the planet and your purse.
WUKA use ethical manufacturers so their workers get fair wages, working hours and social benefits. The super-absorbent fabric is also manufactured in the UK ensuring it's of the highest quality.
