Eco-friendly period products: how to make your cycle more sustainable
When it comes to period care products, it’s easy to reach for what you know. Your go-to menstrual products might be convenient and reliable, but what if there were more eco-friendly options you could try?
In the wake of the 50th anniversary of World Environment Day, a global event uniting millions in the fight to protect our planet, it's the perfect time to explore your options. This year, the spotlight is on reducing plastic pollution – a goal we can help to achieve by making simple, sustainable switches in our everyday lives.
So why not explore reusable period products?
Eco-friendly period products that reduce waste and make an impact
Making your cycle more sustainable is easier than ever, especially when so many products support a more planet-friendly period. From menstrual cups and reusable pads to leak-proof underwear, plenty of options are available to help you find the most sustainable period products.
At Modibodi, we create extraordinary period apparel that pairs comfort and convenience with care for our planet. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill period undies or backyard swimmers – they’re unbelievably comfy pieces crafted with innovative absorbent technology capable of holding the period blood and pee of up to 10 tampons.
They’re a win for your body and a big thumbs up for the earth too. Let’s explore.
Are period underwear sustainable?
You bet they are! Period underwear is designed to help you reduce waste while managing your period. In a nutshell, period apparel (like our Modibodi range) is good for the planet, good for people and good for you. Here’s why.
It’s environmentally sustainable
When it comes to comfort and convenience, our period undies and swimwear check all the right boxes. But how do they fare with their environmental credentials? Spoiler alert: they’re pretty darn impressive.
Here are the reasons why Modibodi period undies champion the zero single-use waste movement.
- They’re reusable. You can wear and wash them repeatedly, reducing waste and your ecological footprint.
- They’re responsible. Our period undies are made with responsibly sourced natural and recycled fibres aligned with our Preferred Method Standard.
- They’re durable. You'll get years of use from your period products with proper care.
- They’re energy efficient. Wash them in cold water and dry them in the sun to limit energy use.
It’s comfortable for you
We’re serious about protecting the health of people who menstruate. That’s why we make our period underwear using non-toxic fabrics that are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® tested and certified as free from harmful substances.
In simple terms, we manufacture every piece to lock in the goodness and keep our products safe with lots of lab tests.
Our period undies wrap your skin in oh-so-soft recycled and natural fibres like organic cotton, and cellulose made from bamboo and wool to keep you comfortable no matter what life throws at you. They offer superior breathability, a flexible fit and reliable support on regular days, sweaty days, active days and at sleep time.
It’s affordable and accessible
You might be thinking, “All this talk of comfy, eco-friendly period undies is great, but what about the price tag?” We hear you. Our ethos here at Modibodi is that sustainable period care should be affordable and available to everyone and every body.
Our period underwear isn’t just conscious of the planet – it’s also kind to your budget. You'll need to invest in a few pairs initially, but they’ll pay for themselves in no time.
When it comes to accessibility, we’ve got you covered. We firmly believe that every person who menstruates has the right to feel comfortable and secure during their period. It’s not a luxury – it’s a basic necessity.
That’s why we’ve worked to make our period underwear accessible to a wide range of genders, body types and sizes. No matter who you are, you'll find something you love in sizes 4 to 26.
