Did you know conventional menstrual pads are made up of 90% plastic materials? And with the average menstruating person using up to 15 pads a period, that leads up to a ton of trash. That's why, back in 1989, Natracare developed the world's first range of truly natural care products–and have been perfecting them ever since. Their Organic Cotton Extra Strength Pads are totally plastic free, containing no added perfumes, dyes, chlorine, or additives. The double absorbent cellulose core keeps you dry, with wings to help them stay securely. Plus, they're individually wrapped in compostable starch film packaging for convenience on the go! Strength Level: Extra Strength
Compostable
This product contains material that can break down into soil in either a backyard or industrial composting system. These products are declared compostable by the manufacturer, but may not third-party certified. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted. Certain materials may be better fit for industrial facilities than backyard composting systems. Industrial facilities may not exist in your area.

Low Impact Dyes or Inks
Low impact dyes and inks can include vegetable, soy, or water-based alternatives and generally do not contain toxins such as heavy metals, plasticizers, flurocarbons, and fomaldehyde. They typically also use less water than conventional dyes and inks.

Organic Content
Organic materials and ingredients are grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, farm workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Choosing organic materials eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!

Phthalate Free
Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

Natracare

Natracare began in 1989 when founder Susie Hewson got upset after watching a documentary about the growing danger to human health and the environment from dioxin pollution (which results from pulping industries and the bleaching of paper products). Knowing that there was an unconcerned response from the international period hygiene brands, Susie was determined to come up with an alternative. Natracare became the world's first alternative to conventionally produced menstrual products and today is the global leading brand of natural and organic menstrual and personal care products. All of Natracare's products are made from organic and natural materials, and the company as a whole is committed to the highest ethical standards. All of their products are animal-friendly, vegetarian-approved, gynecologist recommended, sustainably sourced, multi-award winning, certified organic, and totally chlorine-free. Plus, all of their products are biodegradable so make you're minimizing your impact and not leaving pesky plastics behind.
