Countries contributing to the highest amount of plastic pollution worldwide are in the Indian Ocean region (Malaysia, Indi, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Thailand). At the same time two of the world's largest and most polluting rivers - the Ganges and the Indus also flow into the Indian Ocean. This means that approximately 15% of the global plastic waste has found its way into Indian Ocean. Approximately 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year. Plastic pollution threatens food safety, human health, coastal tourism and contributes to climate change.
It is in our DNA to create meaningful impact. Converting plastic waste into reusable Safepad menstrual pads is our latest approach to tackling waste problems around the world.
Safepad is made from recycled polyester yarns that are very durable. By creating reusable pads from high-quality, long-lasting polyester fabric, we help to reduce waste created by menstrual products by up to 99%.
Safepad is made to last up to four years making it probably the most durable metro pet on the market safe but is the sign with an anti-microbial treatment that makes it very easy and safe to reuse.
Safepad is made from 100% polyester, primary originating from recycled plastic bottles. This makes Safepad suitable for recycling.
75% of all women experience vaginal yeast or bacterial infections during their lifetime. These infections cause health issues and in worst cases will impact fertility.
Safepad™ hygienic sanitary pads are designed with a permanently bonded antimicrobial technology that helps reducing vaginal infections caused by Candida albicans along with infections from other pathogens.
The antimicrobial technology is based on a treatment that leaves a positively charged layer on the fabric. This layer will attract and kill the negatively charged microbes, like bacteria and fungi. The treatment does not contain any harmful chemicals. The permanently bonded antimicrobial fabric along with a highly absorbent material provides a comfortable and hygienic experience for the women.
Safepad™ is made of a soft, durable and breathable fabric, that offers protection and comfort.
Safepad™ is re-usable and can be re-cycled. It's' an investment that will save you money in the long run.
⇢Super Daypad can absorb approximately 20 ml without leaking.
⇢Long Nightpad can absorb approximately 30 ml without leaking.

Why is polyester a better material than organic cotton?add
Organic cotton is made from cotton that is organically grown. Even though organic cotton is better than regular cotton, because no or very little pesticides are used, there are still considerable environmental problems associated with cotton:
On a worldwide average 10.000 litres of water are use to produce 1 kg of cotton, for organic cotton specifically this figure is even higher because the yield is lower
Fertile farming land is used to produce cotton approximately 10 m2/kg
Cotton is much less durable than polyester and therefore the lifetime is less than half, which gives a higher amount of waste.
Cotton dries much slower than polyester, so whereas a Safepad will dry in as little as 30 minutes, a comparable pad made from cotton could easily take 24 hours to be properly dried
Organic cotton pads may absorb a large amount of menstrual fluid. Nevertheless, organic cotton pads may absorb the fluid slower, so even though the organic cotton pad absorbs more, the user might feel a need of changing it more often.
Blood stains are quite difficult to remove from cotton fabrics as compared to polyester. This will cause the users to discard the cotton pads even earlier. Safepad even has a stain release treatment, that will make it even easier to wash.
Safepad is made from polyester fabric with a high and immediate absorbency that ensures comfort and leakage free periods. The antimicrobial layer is formed from silica, nitrogen, and carbon. The antimicrobial technology offers an infection free period.
How to handle blood clots?add
Inner labia Safepads are perfect not only as a backup for a tampon, a cup, or a disc, they are also perfect for heavy bleeders or postpartum when being worn with Safepad. The Inner labia pad slows down your flow which allows extra time for the Safepad to absorb all liquid, especially when experiencing blood clots/gushes. The Inner labia Safepad also works as a bridge in-between your Safepad and your vulva spreading the liquid evenly onto the Safepad. This feature will ensure that the full absorption capacity of the pad is used. This combination ensures a leakage free experience.
I accidentally tumble dried my Safepad, is it ruined?add
You can still use your Safepad after it has been tumble dried. The antimicrobial treatment does not come off during wash or if tumble dried.
What is Safepad made from?add
Safepad is made from 100% polyester.
