The Toxin Free Period Choice: hannahpad

Legally in Australia, manufacturing companies of period products such as tampons and pads are not required to list all the ingredients contained in their products. This makes it difficult to choose products when companies aren’t transparent. Which is why we created hannahpad, a non-toxic period product you don’t have to compromise your health for.

What is really in disposable pads?

What is really in disposable pads?

A year ago I had never even thought about the fact that there could be toxins in disposable pads and tampons. Why would there be? I just assumed that the people making them had my best interest at heart, how very naive of me. One of the things that astounded me was the fact that one pad is estimated to have the same amount of plastic as 4 plastic bags.

Tips: On-the-go with hannahpad

Tips: On-the-go with hannahpad

Can using hannahpads be discrete?

I never carried disposable pads together in a pouch before, so it was never discrete having to pull one out and shove it in my pocket or tuck it under my armpit before racing to the bathroom.
