Rather than using synthetic fibers, plastics, chlorine (to bleach your pads white), and cotton, Kindfully produces period products mindfully.
Kindfully pads are produced from unbleached bamboo, from FSC (forest stewardship council) certified plantations, and they do not contain harsh chemicals or plastics. Bamboo is naturally fast-growing, soft, and antibacterial. We prefer bamboo fabric clothing for these qualities, so why not prefer bamboo based pads?!
These pads and liners are hypoallergenic for those who have sensitive skin in addition to just being plain soft, comfortable, and efficient. This Kind Planet will gladly use these as they meet the bar for all purposes: absorbent, comfortable, thin, and mindful.
The packaging is simple and efficient while being compostable, plant-based, and/or recyclable (as well as beautiful).
The only roadblock we see to the masses switching to this product is the price point. Access to period products is an issue for many females in the world due to finances and/or accessibility. The issue of price is common with new sustainable products, but we have hopes that while their business grows, Kindfully can reduce their landing costs and costs to the consumer.
Overall, we think Kindfully is a great option for This Kind Planet readers to try!
