I’ve teamed up with Trade To Aid for this fantastic giveaway. Have you been thinking making the switch to reusable period products? Then read on – and you are also in for the chance to win a set!
Why swap for reusables?
Regular period products are made of a lot of nasty stuff, much like nappies. A conventional sanitary pad is made of up to 90% plastic – another is that a pack of menstrual pads is equivalent to 4 plastic bags . Tampons have plastic in them too – even in the string – and plastic applicators are made from polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP). And other chemicals. All of this of course cannot be recycled, they go straight to landfill as they are classified as medical waste.
Win A Set Of Reusable Period Pads From Trade To Aid
Reusable Sanitary Pads – That Give Back!
These reusable period pads are made from high-quality super-soft bamboo charcoal and recycled plastic. Includes: two light pads, two medium pads, two heavy pads, one waterproof wet bag.
Trade To Aid reusable period pads are comfortable, secure and save you money.
Save money. Reduce waste. Help others.
For every pack of reusable pads you buy from Trade To Aid, they donate a pack to a refugee in need of period products.
Period poverty is a global issue that we need to tackle, not tomorrow, but now. Trade To Aid is dedicated to helping women and girls in need. For every pack of pads you buy, we will donate one to women and girls in need.

No i haven’t its one eco friendly product,i’m still yet to try
Not yet but would like to
Not tried any yet.
We are just starting to think about this, but some countries have been doing it for years. \more so poorer countries, have used folded cloth and then change it and they wash the one just took off. At the end of the day its your blood, and think of the money you save .
I have actually. Recently I have been using Bodyform but sadly it still overflows and leaks during the night so I had to make the conscious decision to use pads again at night. Maybe if I win these I can use reusable pads at night instead
No, I have quite a heavy flow and I worry they wouldn’t be enough to sop leaks! They’re quite expensive so I don’t want to waste my money if they are no good x
My partner says she has never tried them yet.
No I have not tried any yet.
I havent tried the pads yet – I do use period pants which frankly are a complete game changer – unfortunately I get at least 2 days of super heavy flow during my period so have to resort to pads in the pants (cant use moon cups at work due to the open toilet situation – gender free cubicles with shared sink space is not great for this – really wish they would do self contained cubicles with loo and sink in would make this much easier) – have been looking into getting some reusable pads but haven’t made the jump yet
No, I have never tried them.
Not yet but they sound like a good idea
I use the period cup, brought it over a year ago and have not had to buy disposable products since, they are more reassuring too, I do not feel so self conscious wearing it. These pants are great for younger girls though as cups are for specific ages, i would hopefully have mydaughter using these when it is her time, which doesn’t appear that far away now.
I’ve never tried them before, but they look great
