Why should I use reusable period underwear?
It is known that anything synthetic/plastic is not good for the skin as it is not breathable. Most sanitary products are made of plastic and synthetic materials. They also use harmful chemical fragrances, allergens, and dyes like Dioxin for whitening the pads.
These chemicals are harmful to our skin and can lead to allergies, infections, rashes, itching and many health issues in the longer run. The other reason you should need to switch is our environment. We are positive that 6% of the waste and landfills are caused by the synthetic/plastic in sanitary pads that are being dumped. It is we who should protect and respect the planet by reducing the waste. Even if we can reduce 7 to 8 pads in a cycle, we will reduce the waste by 98 to 100 pads a year. Unmoda is here to help reduce this toxic waste and keep us healthy.
