Reusable Period Pants and Pads: Why You Should Consider Using Both

Reusable Period Pants and Pads: Why You Should Consider Using Both

Welcome to Nora. We make reusable period pants and pads in the UK and we're all about making periods more comfortable and eco-friendly for everyone.

Today we're talking about our most popular products; pants and pads and we'll be letting you in on a little secret; you don't have to pick one or the other, you can use both at the same time! 

First things first, let's talk about the benefits of using reusable period products. If you're new to the game, you might be wondering - why should I switch from disposable pads and tampons to reusables? The answers are clear:  

  • They are BETTER FOR YOUR BODY. Many disposable products contain known carcinogens, allergens, irritants, and endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Reusable period pants and pads don't.  
  • They are BETTER FOR THE PLANET. As concern grows for the future of our planet many of us are looking for ways in which we can change our current behaviours and make a positive impact on the planet. Switching to reusable period pants and/or pads is an easy change and saves thousands of pads and tampons going to landfill. 
  • They BETTER FOR YOUR WALLET. Reusable period pants and pads can be re-used for up to 10 years so it’s time to stop throwing your pads and money in the bin and start saving by throwing your period pants in the wash instead. 

Now, let's discuss why you should consider using both reusable period pants and pads together. NORA pants are great for most flows, and they're super comfortable to wear.

But what happens if your flow is super heavy and you are worried about your pants lasting the pace? Or if you're away from home for an extended period and you're worried about leaking or discomfort. That's where reusable pads come into play.

By wearing a pad inside your period pants, you have an extra layer of absorbency that will support you with even the heaviest of flows. Then when it is time to change the pad, whip it out (placing in a waterproof bag for washing later), and you are still covered by the absorbency in your pants. By popping in a reusable pad, you'll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you're covered on the heaviest and longest of days. 

Along with being an effective backup option, reusable pads are also a budget-friendly alternative. Instead of having to invest in multiple pairs of reusable period pants to cover you on your period, you can split your stash between pads and pants. Plus, pads are easier to swap out than pants, so you can change them on the go without fuss. 

In conclusion, there is no doubt that reusable period pants and pads are two of the best period products out there and by using both, you can get the best of both worlds.  

NORA period pants and pads are designed with every shape, flow, and size in mind, ranging from light to heavy and to fit UK sizes 8-20. We use breathable cotton and materials made from recycled plastic in our products and we're super serious about the planet; that's why we choose to make our reusable pads here in the UK. This means we're skipping the part where your pads are shipped from thousands of miles away, racking up air miles and leaving a massive carbon footprint!

So, when you buy NORA reusable pads, you're not only helping to reduce the world's plastic pollution problem, you're reducing carbon emissions too!
