Small Sustainable Shops
One of my favorite things to do (besides trying out eco-products) is to support small business that help the consumer find more sustainable alternatives of everyday items.
If you have small shop with eco-friendly products, feel free to contact me via email or the contact page.
Battle Green UK
When I was on the search for a reusable period pad, I wanted something with a nice cotton feel and something pretty absorbent (for obvious reasons). I ran into this wonderful shop called Battle Green UK. I have ordered from them quite a few times and have not been disappointed. Their period pads felt weird at first because they are not as thin as the normal plastic pads you buy but that's the joy of having that time of the month. Once you have it in a comfortable enough spot, it will last pretty much throughout the whole day, even with heavy flows. I really like this shop and highly recommend the pads.
The Good Fill
Based in Nashville, TN- The Good Fill offers refills not only in their in person stores but also online. I was a bit concerned at the fact that the online refills come in plastic pouches, but they claim that the pouches are BPA-free and you also receive an envelope that includes pre-paid postage, so you can mail back your clean empty pouches to be re-filled again or it gets recycled through Terra Cycle. Overall, it's a pretty good concept and I do appreciate that they send an envelope with your online refills.
