Lunapads unique design — a pad with a removable liner on top — allows you to customize the protection you need and easily freshen throughout the day. The pad wraps around your underwear and fastens with a small plastic snap. All Lunapads Pad styles feature a thin layer of breathable nylon to help prevent soaking through. Liners are made of 2 layers of highly absorbent fleece, placed on top of the pad and secured with ric-rac bands.
Like disposable pads, you should start each day with a fresh Lunapad Pad, then change Liners as often as needed. On heavier days, you may want to change the entire Pad at some point — on light ones probably not at all. With experience, you will learn which pad style and how many liners will take you through a day.
Lunapads Pantyliners are designed for ultra-light protection for daily discharge, very light menstrual flow, or as backup protection for other feminine hygiene products, such as the DivaCup
. Unlike Lunapads Pads, Pantyliners do not have an extra layer of nylon lining and are not compatible with Lunapad Liners.
It can take anywhere from one day to several months to incorporate your new washable pads into your monthly routine. Many women start out by just using them at night, when they’re at home, or on lighter flow days. This kit includes reusable Pads, Liners and Pantyliners for use throughout your menstrual cycle:
- Maxi Pad & Liner – use for average flow days. Add the Maxi Wing Liner to increase absorbency for heavy flow days.
- Mini Pad & Liner – use for light flow days. Add the Mini Pad Liner to increase absorbency. (Note: Mini Liners are also compatible with Maxi Pads)
- Mini Pantyliner – suitable for daily discharge, very light flow or as backup protection.
- Teeny Pantyliner – a smaller version of the mini, suitable for daily discharge or as backup protection.
Lunapads Pads feature a 100% organic cotton flannel base, topped with an absorbent panel made of 2 layers 100% organic cotton fleece, and 1 layer of ultrathin nylon to minimize soaking through. Liners are made from 2 layers of 100% organic cotton fleece. Pantyliners have a 100% organic cotton flannel base, topped with a panel made of 2 layers of 100% organic cotton fleece.
Organic cotton is a far superior alternative to chemical-laden conventional cotton. More and more farmers around the world are growing cotton without costly, harmful chemicals. Their yield is high and the quality of the cotton they grow is equal to or better than conventionally grown cotton. Their methods support biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, improve the quality of soil and often use less water. Sustainability
Each Lunapad replaces hundreds of disposable tampons and sanitary napkins over the course of its lifetime. Used and cared for as directed, Lunapads last for at least 3 to 5 years, and possibly far longer. Each year, women dispose of more than 20 billion disposable pads and tampons – that’s 10,000 menstrual pads and tampons in an average woman’s lifetime – according to waste consultant Franklin Associates. Disposable pads and tampons (including packaging and applicators) also require tremendous resources to produce, and can take hundreds of years to degrade in landfills.
In addition to supporting a cleaner planet by curbing the environmental impact of disposable tampons and pads, Lunapads also save you money. Replacing disposables with Lunapads could save you anywhere between $200 to $1,000. Click here

Lunapads International is a women-owned small business based in Vancouver, Canada. Their mission is to help women have healthier and more positive experiences of their menstrual cycles, and by extension, their bodies overall. Lunapads are made in Vancouver at a small, family-owned garment manufacturing facility adjacent to the Lunapads offices. Partial proceeds of Lunapads sales benefit Pads4Girls, a unique program that provides girls in developing nations with sustainable menstrual supplies, thereby helping them to stay in school. Care Instructions
Lunapads can be handwashed or machine washed. Soak or rinse Lunapads in cold water prior to washing them with your regular detergent. Some women add a cleaning agent to the soaking process, but this is optional. Washed feminine pads may be air or machine-dried. They will shrink somewhat if you put them in the dryer, as they are made from cotton, but it makes them nice and soft! If staining is a concern, there are many effective non-chlorine based cleaning products available at your local natural foods store. Do not use chlorine bleach or fabric softeners as it will degrade the quality of the pads and harm the environment.
We recommend washing Lunapads once prior to using - not only does this ensure they are clean for you but it also helps to increase the absorbency.
Lunapads may be returned to us in their original condition. We accept returns on unopened, unused personal items only.
