How do they work?
Reusable pads work in pretty much the same way as disposable pads, with the crucial difference that you don’t throw them away after use. This means that they are cheaper and more environmentally-friendly than conventional pads. They affix to your underwear via 2 small clips that are attached to the wings. Once you’re finished with a reusable pad, you can remove it and fold it up. The clips will allow you to clip it together securely. You can then place it in a sealable waterproof bag (included with Trade To Aid reusable pads). When you’re ready, simply follow the guidelines for how to wash the pad. Once you get used to washing them, they’ll serve you well for many years.
Trade To Aid use all their profits to donate pads to women and girls in desperate need of sanitary products, and they also provide menstrual education for school children to ensure a better understanding of periods and to eliminate the taboos surrounding them. Access to sanitary products and menstrual education are the two main routes to ending period poverty – Trade To Aid is committed to both.
Best of luck!
