Did you know that 19 billion single-use feminine hygiene products will be thrown out this year in the United States alone? Most will end up in our oceans and landfills.
We can definitely do something about this.
A Danish company, LastObject, is launching a Kickstarter tomorrow September 1 to help fund a brand-new reusable pad that will contribute to a more waste-free world. Funders will receive 40% off retail on the LastPad.
Co-founded by Isabel Aagaard, LastObject has enjoyed the backing of over 46,000 funders for its other waste-free products such as its last q-tip, tissue box, tissue, and makeup rounds.
The LastPad comes in three different sizes (pantyliner, day pad, and overnight pad) with a breathable top layer, absorbent middle layer, and leak-proof bottom layer. To wash, all you have to do is throw it in the washing machine or hand wash.
