Reaching for yet another pack of single-use paper pads, liners or shields brings with it a mixed bag of emotions, including frustration with the inconvenience they cause and anxiety about potential visible leaks. The last thing you need on top of that is guilt about their impact on our environment.
Whether they make it to landfill or, even worse, end up in our oceans, ‘disposable’ products containing plastic lining and chemical absorbents can take as long as 500 years to decompose – which means they’re not really ‘disposable’ at all. In fact, every pad or liner you’ve ever used is still out there somewhere!
Luckily, a revolution in the world of absorbent textiles means there are now options for men and women looking for a sustainable way to manage life’s little leaks.
