Disposable menstrual products have a huge impact.
Roughly 20 billion pads, tampons and applicators are sent to North American landfills annually. Each menstruating person in North America will throw away an estimated 16,800 disposable pads or tampons in their lifetime; products that require hundreds of years to biodegrade.
Imagine the difference we could make if we chose to ditch the disposables.
Reusable menstrual products are eco-friendly, money-saving, healthy alternatives to disposable pads and tampons. Tens of thousands worldwide have already made the choice to ditch the disposables in favour of products like Lunapads or The DivaCup.
Thanks to Lunapads customers, 1 million+ disposable pads and tampons are diverted from landfills every month.

By choosing to use products like Lunapads and The DivaCup, you will be doing your part to help the environment, and will save money, too! With proper care, Lunapads will last for many years. We estimate that 1 Lunapad replaces 120 disposable products. Just imagine not having to buy menstrual products at all for at least 5 years!
Reusable menstrual products are kinder to your body. If you experience any physical discomfort with conventional menstrual products, Lunapads may help you have a more comfortable period.
Choosing to reuse can also put you back in touch with your menstrual cycle or help you redefine the experience for yourself, on your own terms, which can lead to increased self-knowledge, acceptance, and even empowerment.
In addition, you wonâ€™t be exposing yourself to the potentially harmful chemicals and synthetic materials found in most disposable pads and tampons. You may think that someone out there is making sure that these products are safe and healthy to use, but the fact of the matter is the long-term health and environmental impact of these ingredients is contentious and largely unknown. Manufacturers are not even required to list their ingredients on the package! For more information, see the Feminine Care Factsheet by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
When you make the switch to Lunapads, you know exactly what you are putting into contact with your body. You are in control.
