In today's world we are conscious of the waste we produce, and our monthly cycles, or regular incontinence can produce a lot of waste if we use disposables. But with some wonderful women entrepreneurs we now have several waste-free options to choose from.
Here at Reuseful NZ, a women led business, we have tried and tested a range of reusable period products and have curated what we think are the best brands just for you. Whether you're a woman who prefers tampons or pads, we have you covered.
Period Underwear - Our Customer's Most Popular Choice
These Love Luna's are just the best! Comfortable, easy to clean and leak free. Period underwear are great for all ages and all reasons. Whether you use them for periods, incontinence or daily wear, they are just so versatile.
So what are they? Period underwear are just like your every day undies but with added layers of absorbency in the gusset.
Available in three styles and sized from 6 to 22, you're sure to find a pair that suits you and the women in your life perfectly.
Menstrual Cups - A Superior Alternative To Tampons
If you've always preferred tampons then a menstrual cup is your zero waste alternative. They may seem expensive at first, but they last for ten years, so over time you actually end up saving hundreds of dollars! Our top trusted brands are Lunette and My Cup.
If you're not yet sure whether a menstrual cup is for you, pop on over to our blog 'Menstrual Cups' for everything you need to know.
Reusable Cotton Sanitary Pads - A Gentler Alternative To Disposable Pads
If your preferred menstrual product is a sanitary pad then these reusable cotton pads are your waste-free alternative to disposables.
Our favourite brand here at Reuseful is Hannah. Their cotton pads are extremely well designed to function just how we need them to, whilst also not irritating your delicate skin like disposables do.
Hannah's sanitary pads are also easy to clean (believe it or not) and come in a range of sizes and patterns to suit your needs.
