Many benefits for you and for the environment

Better leak protection: The hemp fleece core is super absorbent and backed by a breathable, waterproof layer that prevents leaks.

Gentle on skin: The fabric in contact with the skin is 100% natural fibre. This reduces the risk of skin irritation, allergic reactions and infection.

Reduced environmental impact (and spending): We estimate that 10,000 menstrual products are thrown out in a lifetime. The lifespan of an Öko-Pad is at least 6 years. And don’t forget the money saved each month by not buying boxes of pads!

Comfort: Öko-Pads are truly comfortable thanks to their ergonomic shape, thin design and soft texture. Plus, since hemp has natural antibacterial properties, they help control odour.

 

Made with care:

Classic-Marie-montre Subventions

We are proud to offer high quality products made in Québec, Canada. We have been gaining expertise in the manufacture of reusable menstrual products since 2009, long before these items were readily available on the market. The research and development process for Öko-Pads involved years of tests, trial and error, and a quest for the best materials. The materials that comprise each Öko-Pad have been meticulously selected for their comfort, function, durability, and their environmental impact. Using organic cotton, hemp fleece, a waterproof layer of laminated cotton and ultra-slim snaps, we have created an Öko-Pad that provides unmatched comfort for the user.

crochet 65x65How to use Öko-Pads


How to secure the pad

Classic-Culotte

 

Easy as 1-2-3, securing an Öko-Pad is not much different than using a disposable pad.

Close the wings around the gusset of your underwear using the two snaps. The wider part of the pad goes at the front of your underwear.

Choose tight-fitting, cotton underwear for best results.

 

Individual Storage Pouches or How to Use Öko-Pads Away From Home

Using Öko-Pads when you’re out and about isn’t much different from using disposables. All Öko-Pads fit our Individual Storage Pouch (included or sold separately, depending on the collection).

Heading out for the day? Monday morning meetings and menstruation? No problem! When you change your pad, keep the storage pouch and:

1.

Entre-dans-la-pochette-MIN-128I


Slide the used pad inside the empty pouch

 

2.

Tire-Lave-moi-MINI-258
Pull out the “To Wash” tag

 

The pouch has a “To wash” tag designed to be pulled out when you put your used pad in, or tucked away when your pad is clean. This way you can easily tell what needs to be washed when you get home. Super practical!

crochet 65x65The Interlabial Pad

PliageDo you have a heavy flow or are you worried about leaks? Using interlabial pads might be the solution for you! The pad is placed directly between the labia (do not insert into the vagina). An interlabial pad will redirect, absorb and/or slow the flow of menstrual fluid.
