The comfy, zero waste alternative to disposable sanitary wear.
Women hygiene products, such as sanitary pads, tampons or other are a necessity. Unfortunately, most of those are single-use. These are usually packed in plastic and are partly made from plastic, meaning that they are not recyclable or biodegradable. Instead, they take 500 to 700 years to break down into smaller pieces called microplastics.
All reusable menstrual pads are discreetly in black and made from three materials:
- Bamboo charcoal for a dry and soft feeling, as well as odour control
- Microfiber for maximum absorption and quick drying
- Waterproof PUL for best protection and slight elasticity
All reusable sanitary pads also have snaps on the wings to make sure they stay in place securely all the time.
Bambaws' mission is to offer sustainable alternatives to wasteful single use products to tackle pollution at its source. Plastic takes hundreds of years to decompose. A product with such a lifespan, mass-produced for single use, only creates problems.
From all the plastic ever created 12% has been destroyed by incineration and only 9% has been recycled. This means that most plastic (79%) finds its way into the world’s ecosystems endangering all life forms on earth.
Zero-waste options aim to reduce the waste generated on Earth. They offer the simplest solution to pollution by tackling the plastic problem at its source. Zero-waste is rethinking the way we consume to avoid using products that will remain on Earth for hundreds of years, after being used for only 10 minutes.
Bamboo is truly a wonder plant. It can grow up to one meter a day. This fast grower absorbs five times more carbon dioxide and produces 35% more oxygen than trees.
To grow like this, bamboo requires little water and neither pesticides nor fertilizers. When bamboo is harvested, the plant regenerates itself from its roots system. These root systems also prevent erosion and nourish the soil with potassium and other nutriments.
Bamboo fibre is extremely soft, light weighted and a more sustainable alternative to cotton.
