These reusable, machine washable pantyliners help you replace the 10,000 feminine products purchased in a woman's lifetime. Each year, women dispose of more than 20 billion disposable pads and tampons – according to waste consultant Franklin Associates. Disposable pads and tampons, as well as their packaging and applicators, require tremendous resources to produce, and can take hundreds of years to degrade. In addition to supporting a cleaner planet by curbing the environmental impact of disposable tampons and pads, Lunapads also save you money. Replacing disposables feminine products could save you anywhere between $200 to $1,000.
Lunapads are made of soft, absorbent 100% organic cotton that features a nylon lining to protect against leakage. These feminine products are interchangeable for light, medium and heavy flow days. Lunapads offer a simple way to make the switch to reusable pads and pantyliners. These innovative pads are top-of-line, in terms of both quality and convenience. Like practicing recycling or remembering to bring your own shopping bags to the market with you, washing Lunapads is admittedly a little more work than just throwing away used pads and tampons. Even if you're not ready for a complete change, adding one Lunapad to your monthly routine can be a step in the right direction.
• Reusable set of pantiliners replace thousands of feminine products from ending up in the landfill • Saves you money otherwise spent on disposables such as tampons and pantiliners made from plastic • Comfortable organic cotton is easy to clean and long-lasting

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.
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.
Tips 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.
Comments about Product:Fantastic product. Comfy and does its job. I'm a full time college student with a part time job. Using them instead of disposables has never been an inconvenience. Greatly reccomend them.
Comments about Product:This feels about the same as a regular pad, except I don't feel guilty about throwing a pad away after I'm done using it, not to mention all the packaging that comes with each box. I suggest getting the BunchaFarmers Stain Remover to wash these, you can find it on the lunapads website. Also, if you need to change the pad and you're out, they've got a waterproof carrying pouch that you can use to keep soiled pantyliners in until you get home. And no, I don't work for lunapads, I just love them!
Comments about Product:In comparison to other reusable cloth pads (e.g. Party in My Pants), these have the best shape and feel. They're soft, stay in place well, and are easy to clean. However, they are bulkier than disposable panty liners - BUT are really comfortable, thus the extra bulk is not uncomfortable. They work great in conjunction with the Diva Cup too. Also, the Lunapad website offers more colors and sizes.
Comments about Product:These are a wonderful alternative to disposable pads. I used them during my last period and will definitely be buying more in the near future. Definitely more comfortable. The white ones do stain, but that doesn't bother me.
Comments about Product:I have sensitive skin, so this product is well worth the purchase! I'll be buying more in the very near future just to keep from washing this one so frequently during those days!
Comments about Product:Lunapads products are simply fantastic!!! I am so elated that my two favourite sites are coming together like this! I've used Lunapads, Lunapanties and the Diva Cup for several years now, and I will never go back to disposables. Switching was not hard at all, and the pads and panties are SO much more comfortable than disposables. My daughter also recently started using Lunapads, and prefers them over paper products by far. To celebrate the start of her menses, we donated a kit for a girl in a developing nation through the Lunapads website, too.
Comments about Product:Thank you for such a wonderful product! I am relieved to finally find a responsible alternative menstrual product for my cycle. Last month, I had to throw away a disposable pad. It made me feel sick! Never again. Lunapads are so comfortable. And washing them is so easy! I only wish I'd found you sooner. Thank you!

Comments about Product:Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how great I think my Lunapads are. I was really surprised at how absorbent the pads are, and I love the fact that they don’t hold moisture close to your body, very much unlike plastic pads. And best of all, I feel like I'm doing the landfills a favor when I toss my pads in with my laundry every month. Thanks!
