Hey, I’m Lauren, founder of WEO. As a pad wearer myself I found that the reusable pads available to me were lacking in both style and function.
They were branded in a way that didn’t fit my style, meaning I wasn’t having the ‘reusable’ conversation with my friends, so, I decided I would bring a pad to the market that would spark the necessary conversations and create much needed change
Wear ’em Out pads are design-led for the modern woman and people who period, we are an authentic and transparent brand, and we’re on a mission to reduce the 4.3 BILLION disposable menstrual products that are currently thrown out per year in the UK alone
It’s time to pave the way, to set new trends, to cross new boundaries and to be the influence
It’s time to become part of the solution, not part of the problem, are you with me?
Because we can't carry on like this
Did you know that a single disposable pad or tampon takes longer to degrade than the lifespan of the person who wore it, in fact, it can take up to 800 years! Or that 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used in the UK every year equating to 200,000 tonnes of menstrual waste hitting UK landfill per year? Unlikely to come up in a pub quiz, we know, but still important.
The good news is, making the switch to more eco-friendly periods is easy.
Less landfill = More smugness
*The Absorbent Hygiene Products Manufacturers Association (AHPMA) estimate that an average woman or person who periods uses 22 tampons or pads per month, and that they will use around 11,000 in their lifetime
More reasons to make the switch
The average woman or person who periods uses 22 disposable sanitary products per period. Why not save your cash for something better? We vote ice cream.
We can’t let big brands dictate how we manage our bodies. Let’s keep the conversation flowing, and together we can help each other find #anewwaytoperiod
