How we started...
ORGANIC ECO WEARS WAS BORN FROM LOOKING FOR A PLASTIC FREE, COMPLETELY SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT WHICH WE JUST COULDN'T FIND....SO WE MADE OUR OWN AND DECIDED TO SHARE THEM WITH THE WORLD.
We were shocked to find out that one pack conventional sanitary pad as as much plastic as 4 carrier bags. That to us was crazy....with the addition of toxins from cotton production that your skin absorbs, over time this could contribute towards health problems.
The purpose of using reusable products for us is to get away from materials that are harmful for the environment and to our health due to the harsh chemicals and pesticides used in production. That is why we only use sustainable fibers like bamboo, and only use cotton that is farmed organically - even the thread!
As well as being healthier and more comfortable to wear, the use of this naturally grown fiber supports a way forward for organic farming which is better for the earth. Think of how a nicotine patch works...our skin absorbs EVERYTHING! Using toxic free fabrics eliminates this harm in a very sensitive area!
The wings are made in two sizes to minimise bulk from layered fabric when wearing, and we use rust proof metal fastenings - no plastic! (We all know we need less of that in this world!)
As well as offering our products, our mission is to also educate women about how to take control of your period - it is such a natural process, yet we are seriously damaging the environment by using conventional single use products.
