Why organic? 
One of the main benefits of going organic is that crops are not treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms GMOs. 
These toxins are harmful for farmers and cotton pickers as well as us, the consumers. The toxins also have a negative effect to entire wildlife eco-systems. Using organic cotton is healthier for you as you avoid exposure to pesticides and other potentially toxic materials. 
Additionally, by going organic you will also be enabling farmers and pickers of organic cotton, many of whom are women, 
to be self-sufficient and financially independent. 
How are Etica pads good for vaginal health? 
Our pads are free of dioxides and allergens, free of chlorine and pesticides and free of perfumes and plastics, all of which are contained in conventional period products and have a variety of negative implications on vaginal health. 
How do conventional period pads affect the environment? 
The plastics used in conventional menstrual products are not biodegradable or compostable and will remain in the environment for hundreds of years. The production of plastic releases huge amounts of pollution into the environment. Toxic gases released contribute towards global warming and have a detrimental effect on our health.
