Collection: Hannah Pad - Certified organic cloth pads for periods, maternity and light incontinence management
hannahpad is a non-toxic menstrual cloth pad option that is designed and made in Korea. The CEO of hannahpad Korea is also surprisingly a male. He created hannahpad due to the pain suffered by his female friend during her period. hannahpad was originally established in 2005 to offer a non-toxic and organic alternative in Korea. It is now the time to spread hannahpad globally, so more people can have access to a healthier product for their menstrual cycle.
hannahpad is an AIO (all in one) style cloth pad meaning that there are no removable inserts to deal with. Instead, the internal cotton sheets are sewn to the core of the cloth pad.
This makes hannahpads easier to wear, change and wash.

Why should I switch to washable organic cloth pads?
Women through the ages have used old rags to catch their flow, therefore; washable cloth pads are not a new idea on the market.
It is important now than ever to switch to washable organic cloth pads as they are made from certified organic cotton that is unbleached and non-dyed, healthier on the body, reduces landfill waste, and just more bang for your buck.
- Better against your skin/body
- Saves the planet one washable cloth pad at a time
- Cost-effective (long term savings)
What are the environmental benefits of using cloth pads?
Almost 4.2 million Australian women aged between 14-54 would have purchased menstrual products (tampons, sanitary pads, panty liners) in the last month. You can only imagine the amount of waste these disposable options will produce in a year (~45,000 tonnes) from women with regular menstrual cycles.
Disposable tampons and pads can take hundreds of years to decompose and the toxic chemicals released into the earth and air is harmful on the environment, animals and humans. This is not only an Australian issue but a worldwide concern that should be taken seriously. hannahpads have a lifespan of 2-3 years or longer depending on personal use and care. In comparison to disposables, the organic cotton material can take about 12 months to biodegrade and compost.
