With ImseVimse’s washable and reusable panty liners and cloth pads, made of organic cotton jersey, you will save a lot of waste! The pads provide a soft and natural period protection that treats your skin right and is free of chemicals. This active pad has the same absorption capacity as the regular cloths pads with added softness for a smoother, more comfortable feel, allowing the pad to adjust to the movement of your body. This makes the cloth pad perfect for the active menstruating person. With two buttons on the wings, they are easily attached around the crotch of your panties.
The pads contain a thin layer of certified PUL (polyurethane laminate polyester) making them leak-proof. You’re probably thinking: polyester, isn’t that plastic? That's right, but the amount of plastic that is used is very small compared to single-use sanitary pads and is reused over and over again. PUL ensures that the pads are leak-free. We have not yet found a suitable alternative. You do? Please let us know!
Milieu Centraal calculated that the average woman disposed of approximately 10,000 tampons or cloth pads in her life. That is 90 kilos of cloth pads or 60 kilos of tampons in residual waste. Washing reusable cloth pads will also have an impact on the environment. At this moment, not enough research has been conducted to conclude whether disposable or reusable menstrual products are better for the environment. However, Milieu Centraal compared disposable and reusable diapers. This study has shown that reusable diapers are better for the environment, even if you take into account washing and production.
