Let’s talk period pants – How do WUKA period pants work? Constructed of leak proof layers, which prevent the blood from passing through the underwear, whilst allowing airflow, so they are breathable and prevent sweating.
These period pants could save you up to 50% by switching from disposables, diverting 200 disposables from landfill – environmentally a win-win!
Wash, Wear, Reuse.
Remember the ‘Tampon Tax’ debate?

More about the WUKA period pants
There are several WUKA (#wakeupkickass) styles to select from – the WUKA Ultimate™ Bikini – is made from organic cotton and are GOTs certified. This means that the cotton was grown without chemical pesticides, chemical fertilisers, GM seeds and therefore does not doesn’t destroy our ecosystems?
Organic cotton can actually be beneficial to the environment as it can improve soil quality and often uses less water than other fabrics. This material is also vegan and unlike wool, it’s easier to clean, dry and is softer to touch.
