How do reusable menstrual pads work?
All bamboo pads are handmade. Its 4 layers of natural and technical fabrics guarantee fast absorption, maximum comfort and no leakage.
- Breathable and super soft bamboo top layer is antibacterial and odor neutralizing. Ideal for sensitive skin.
- DryFit technology layer wicks moisture away and keeps you dry.
- Super absorbent layer absorbs 10 times its weight in 3 seconds and distributes your flow evenly throughout the pad.
- Waterproof PUL layer to prevent leakage.
Size of reusable pads
To select your ideal pad, check that both the size and absorbency suit your characteristics:
Size S is perfect for light flows and serves as a panty liner.
Size M is ideal if you have a normal flow that is not too heavy.
Size L is for women whose flow is heavy and need extra absorbency.
How to wash reusable menstrual pads
The ecological pads are easily washed in 3 simple steps:
- First, rinse them in cold water until there is no more blood left. If there is any stain you can use a neutral soap.
- Second, wash them by hand or put them in the washing machine (Max. 40ºC) with the rest of your pads and clothes to wash them thoroughly.
- Finally, let them air dry. If it can be in the sun, much better.
Do not dry bamboo pads in the dryer or use fabric softeners or bleach. This will affect the proper functioning and decrease its life span.

Questions about buying reusable sanitary pads?
How long does an Eco Woman EcoPad last?
The Eco Woman Eco Pads last between 2 and 5 years, depending on the care taken both in use and washing.
Reusable pads are a delicate product, however, the absorption capacity will be maintained as long as the washing instructions are followed.
How many pads will I need?
It will always depend on your menstrual flow to know how often you need to change them and how many days your menstrual cycle lasts. However, we recommend buying a 6-pack of cotton pads to fill your entire cycle and it is cheaper than any other option.
Is it possible to stay long hours with the ecological pads on?
Exactly, with EcoPads you will be safe for many hours. However, the moment you notice that the place is wet, it is a sign to change the EcoPad.
And if by any chance you have any other questions, you can consult our FAQ page.
This will be a long review and perhaps a TMI review - I’m almost 40 and since I was 12 I have been on some sort of contraceptive. Only coming off them when trying for a baby and pregnant. After the birth of my second child I agreed to the contraceptive implant without much thought and this has played havoc with my body over the years. My hormones have been all over the place, my emotional well-being and physical health too, I have either spent years on periods or had none for years. So I decided to try the copper coil which I had complications with too so I had it removed. Here I am, almost 40, my poor body and womb had been through a lot, and I have no idea what a normal period looks like for me. I’m now tracking my cycle and understanding my body like never before (why do they not teach this in school?!) and I decided to try these pads in an effort to be kinder to myself. To be honest, kindness to the planet by using reusable pads came second a I bought these for myself. I was so fed up of sanitary towels after having to wear them daily for years etc, I was so desperate for something soft that felt like I was taking care of myself. I doubted these would be able to cope with my periods, I have a very heavy flow so I ordered the 6 pack ‘heavy flow’ and I can say - as someone who had to layer up sanitary towels, pad my pants with tissues and be house bound… these work. They are unbelievably soft on your skin, they didn’t leak once, they’re big but not bulky feeling, I’d suggest getting a bigger/second wet bag as the one they came with is small and only holds one pad but that is my only complaint. I cannot believe it’s taken me until I’m middle aged to find these. I did yoga, I slept…went outside! Not one leak, or plastic pulling at me, no running, no bunching. Whilst I understand the price point, I do wish these were cheaper or perhaps a pay in 3 option was available at check out - I’m really aware that they are expensive (I understand why). I wish they were perhaps more accessible to women?
If you can, try these. They might just be the kindest, most biggest act of self care, I’ve ever given myself.
I love this product. It's so comfortable compared to conventional pads and it absorbs so much better I didn't have any leak issues.
EcoPads® - Savings Pack (6 Pads + Free Wet Bag)
When I first saw these loved the idea so decided to buy a pack for myself and my sister. I’ve found the snap button rubs sometimes, but a simple adjustment of the pad usually fixes that.
I was unsure at first, but now I wouldn’t go back to disposable pads. These are comfortable and I love the fact that I’m no longer throwing away so much every month.
Would definitely recommend
I was looking for an alternative to disposable pads because of all the chemicals in them, and I'm really glad I found these. They are super comfortable and feel great. I was worried that these would feel like wearing a diaper, but that's not the case! They actually feel less diaper-like than the disposable pads. Cleaning them is easy if you do it right away after using them. I've discovered that it's harder to clean them if you wait a few days after using them. All around I would say these are a really great alternative and I'm glad I invested my money into these!
