These period pads with wings are made from 100% Soil Association certified organic cotton, which is sustainably sourced and grown without chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides. Organic cotton is naturally soft, pH-neutral, breathable and absorbent.

The breathable pads are unscented and hypoallergenic, with a waterproof backing sheet made from a cornstarch bio-polymer which is certified compostable.

  • Rib-Weave ™ design for even, maximum absorption towards cotton core.
  • Protective flexible wings for a secure, leak-free and comfortable fit.
  • Plastic-free - individually bio-wrapped, perfect for on the go.

Disposing of pads:

  • All of the &SISTERS organic cotton period range is entirely plastic-free and made from plant-based materials which are totally biodegradable and compostable. Composting organic cotton pads is really simple:
  • Start by creating the ideal conditions, i.e. warm and damp, by making or buying a sealed bin. Adding to your compost bin regularly, ensures the optimum conditions. It is a good idea to have a balance of both ‘brown’ and ‘green’ compost.
  • Organic cotton pads and liners are considered to be brown compost along with paper, cardboard, egg cartons and more fibrous plant stalks and stems. These do take longer to break down and biodegrade than ‘green’ compost and so it’s a good idea to cut or pull these apart by hand, before putting them in the compost bin.
  • Be prepared to wait. Although period products are compostable, they can take at least 18 months to completely break down and for nature’s building blocks to be returned to the soil.
