Cloth pads are a wonderful, environmentally friendly, non-toxic alternative to commercial menstruation, postpartum and light incontinence management pads.
They're made from certified organic cotton that is chemical-free (no dioxin, formaldehyde, pesticides and herbicides free), fragrance-free, unbleached, and non-dyed. And they're so comfortable against the skin.
The organic cotton internal layers and top sheet are compostable and biodegradable after 12 months. In comparison, disposable sanitary pads and tampons can take decades even centuries to break down.
Cloth pads also smell a lot less than commercial pads because of the lack of chemicals.
"After adopting a vegan, more eco friendly lifestyle I made the switch from tampons. Not only have these been comfortable to wear, easy to wash, it has also made a difference to the overall health of my cycle. Can not recommend these enough." Kaylee

2. Fold the wings over the outside of your underwear and fasten using the snaps.
NOTE: There are no sticky adhesives on hannahpad’s wings, instead you’ll find plastic snap fasteners that are 100% recyclable. These snaps make it easy to use and help secure the pad firmly in place when wrapped around the underwear.
