Pantys - championing sustainable periods
Every day, approximately 300 million people across the world menstruate. Those who are lucky enough to have access to menstrual products, dispose of single-use pads and tampons multiple times a day, generating waste that will not decompose before 500 years.
Pantys decided to change the game, and has found a way to do periods better.
The future of periods
Pantys is a sustainable menstrual underwear brand, lead by healthcare innovation and technological progress.
Their products are biodegradable, reusable, washable and hygienic, all with the comfort, look and feel of normal underwear. They're made with natural fibres that compose in only 3 years and the antimicrobial properties reduce 99% bacteria that cause infections and odors, much more than a normal tampon could ever do.
You can slip them on any time you need extra protection, and the multi-layer lining will keep you dry and absorb anything from menstrual blood to sweat. They are also leak proof, so they can be worn as a backup with other menstrual products.
They come in sizes XS to 3XL and in different , from the lightest to overnight flows.
What is wrong with traditional menstrual products?
Pantys is on a mission to replace single use pads and tampons, in order to reduce waste and periods' carbon footprint.
Instead of using a disposable product, you can rewash your Pantys while maintaining their full antibacterial, absorbent functionality.
Considering that one pair can absorb as much liquid as 2 pads or 4 tampons do and that it can be rewashed for an average of 50 times, imagine the amount of plastic you'll be saving by switching to period underwear
To make sure you're taking proper care of your them and getting the most out of them, rinse in cold water to remove excess flow, pop them in the washing machine inside a delicates bag and finally air dry. And just like that, your Pantys are ready to be reused!
