It’s no secret, single use menstrual hygiene products like sanitary pads and tampons leave a hefty environmental footprint, contributing to landfill waste and pollution on a large scale. If you’ve been slowly looking into how to make more sustainable lifestyle swaps, the idea of your beach bliss being tarnished by using disposable period products might leave you feeling limited. Fortunately, there’s a way to soak up the sun while caring for the planet! Enter the revolutionary world of period swimwear, by Azure Belle Period Swimwear.
The dark side of single-use period products
While marketed as convenient and easy to use, single use period products have a shockingly dark side. Did you know:
- A single tampon takes anywhere from 500 to 800 years to decompose.
- The average person uses 12,000 to 16,000 disposable period products in their lifetime, generating a mountain of waste in landfill.
- Plastic applicators from tampons often end up in our oceans, harming marine life.
Making waves for environmental change
Thankfully, period swimwear offers a game-changing alternative. Our innovative, stylish period swimwear designs seamlessly integrate absorbent layers, eliminating the need for disposable period products for swimming. This translates to:
- Drastically reduced waste: Each pair of period swimwear replaces hundreds of pads or tampons, saving precious landfill space.
- No more plastic pollution: Say goodbye to applicator woes and their harmful ocean impact.
- Sustainable materials: Many brands are choosing recycled fabrics and eco-friendly manufacturing processes, further minimising environmental impact.
A sea of benefits
But the benefits of period swimwear go beyond eco-friendliness. It's about empowering women to embrace their periods and enjoy summertime activities without limitations:
- Confidence and comfort: No more bulky pads or worries about leaks. Our period swimwear is designed with lightweight layers with no added bulk so you can move freely and confidently, whether swimming, surfing, or soaking up the sun.
- Reduced hygiene hassles: Ditch the endless bathroom trips and messy changes. Period swimwear provides leak-proof protection for hours, keeping you secure in and out of the water, offering ultimate convenience.
- Better for your body: We prioritise using sustainably sourced and eco-friendly materials in our period swimwear. Our swimwear fabric has been certified as skin-safe to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 criteria, this means the fabric has been independently tested and verified by a laboratory to be free of fluorine and potentially harmful PFAS and PFOS chemicals.
Make the sustainable swap
Ready to make a splash for the planet and your wellbeing? When choosing period swimwear, consider these factors:
- Absorbency level: Opt for options that suit your flow, from light to heavy.
- Comfort and fit: Ensure the suit is comfortable and secure, allowing for free movement but no loose areas.
- Sustainability: Shop with brands, like Azure Belle, with a commitment to corporate social responsibility, prioritising eco-friendly materials and ethical production practices.
Swapping to period swimwear is a simple yet powerful step towards a more sustainable and positive period experience.
