🎯 Making periods a little less shitty
Approximately 19 billion single-use feminine hygiene products are thrown out each year, the vast majority of this will end up in landfills as plastic waste, and this is only in The US.
According to the European Commission, menstrual products are the fifth most common plastic waste product found in our ocean.
During the 2016 beach clean-up, the Marine Conservation Society found 20 feminine hygiene products per 100 meters of shoreline, this is pretty fatal for marine life.
A woman that uses single-use menstruation pads will use somewhere between 11.000 and 16.000 single-use menstruation pads during her life, this is both expensive and bad for the environment.
The reusable LastPad is thin, soft, and leakproof, it has a 5-year guarantee (with proper care), is super absorbent, and it is good for 240 uses (or more), this means that if you buy their recommended 9 packs you will have saved the planet from 2880 single-use menstruation pads, pretty awesome right!
Buy LastPad once and cross menstruation pads off your checklist forever. No more excessive waste, no more running out of pads. Just Bleed, Wash, and repeat.
Menstruation pads will end up costing you thousands of dollars in single-use feminine hygiene products over time.
Most women deal with about 5 (2-7 days being the norm) days of bleeding per menstrual cycle for about 40 years, this adds up to about 494 menstrual cycles in a lifetime.
If using menstruation pads then you will probably go through 4 single-use pads (between 4-5) per day with an average price of $0,48 per pad.
Per period: 4 single-use pads per day x 5 days of a period = 20 pads per cycle x 0,48 per pad =$9,6 per cycle.
Per year: 4 single-use pads per day x 5 days of a period = 20 pads per cycle x 13 periods = 260 pads per year x $0,48 per pad = $124,8 per year.
In a lifetime: 4 single-use pads per day x 5 days of a period = 20 pads per cycle x 494 periods = 9880 pads per life x 0,48 per pad = $4742,4 in a lifetime.
