Tired of buying pads and tampons every month, just to throw them in the trash? Over a lifetime, this adds up to somewhere between 5,000 and 15,000 pads and tampons.  Yikes.

That's why we love period underwear. Use them on their own or as a backup to a menstrual cup, period undies are one of our favorite sustainable essentials.

We've chosen Saalt brand because their designs are thinner than others we've tried, so you'll never feel bulky or uncomfortable. The gusset (aka the crotch) quickly absorbs wetness, keeping you dry and comfortable longer.

If you're like us, you'll be tempted to wear them even when you're not on your period!

Each pair of undies is about as absorbent as 2-3 tampons.

On the fence? Check out our blog post on the five reasons to switch to reusable period products!

To Use

Wear just like any other pair of undies during your period, without pads, liners, or tampons.


Rinse with cold water after wearing to help avoid staining. Machine wash with like colors on cold (your other laundry will survive, I promise) and hang to dry. We recommend washing in a delicates bag for some extra care. Do not use fabric softener, bleach, or iron.

Packaging + End of Life

100% post-consumer recycled paper envelope. The envelope your undies arrive in is 100% recyclable with paper recycling. Because of the mixed fabrics, when these undies have reached the end of their usable life, we recommend taking them to a textile recycling facility.

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.

My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.

I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.

Wish I started using these sooner!

I first bought one of these period underwear to try out, it was such a great experience, I bought two more. They are comfortable, not bulky at all, and you won't even notice they are any different that regular underwear. On top of that they are quite cute. Best of all, no more waste!
