Making this eco-friendly switch is so simple because you just slip these period underwears on and they do all the work for you. Knix produces absorbent and reusable period-wear that actually doesn’t look like granny panties (sorry grannies, no hate to you). Period underwear is made with three layers that work together and they sell panties with varying absorbancy levels to match with your cycle.

2. LUÜNA naturals
A menstrual cup? Like how do you use that? Which way goes where? If you’re new to making this switch, you’ll have many questions. And we have them answered here, as we have tried and tested menstrual cups from LUÜNA naturals and we’ve been sticking to them since. Before making a purchase, you will need to do some simple measurements to find the right size for yourself, but the basic gist is that the flexible product collects the blood and you empty and rinse regularly. Plus, these babies last for five years!

3. Dharti Mata
Pads are undeniably favoured by many ladies in Hong Kong. But with great pros, comes great cons – pads take about 500 to 800 years to decompose (what?!) – bet you weren’t aware of that (we didn’t know till recently too). Dharti Mata (Sanskrit for Mother Earth) is a social enterprise based in Nepal, eco-friendly pads are hand-made by local Nepalese women with natural materials, meaning you can re-use these month after month and not have any green guilt..
