Proud Pads are sanitary pads for modern life: easy to use, eco friendly and beautiful. I want to help women and other menstruators take control of their period with a bold product whose subtle shaping and breathable fabric means it fits better and is more comfortable than disposable pads.
We throw away 200,000 tonnes of sanitary waste in the UK every year, taking around 500 years to decompose. Each person that switches to Proud Pads will reduce their menstruation waste by 97% since they last 3-5 years. If everyone switched, we could cut our waste down to 6,000 tonnes. Continued...
The average British woman spends £18,000 on her period, but not everyone can afford that luxury - single mothers, refugees and those forced to use food banks. Proud Pads will donate one sustainable sanitary pad for every five sold, to women living in poverty in the UK.
