ClothCycle Menstrual Pads

See my review here.

ClothCycle is an Australian-based company owned by Rebecca.  Her cloth pads are of very high quality and I can tell that she puts a lot of hard work into making them.  The reviews on her site can definitely attest to that.

Jade & Pearl Sea Pearls Sea Sponge Tampons

See my review here.

Sea Pearls Sea Sponges are plant-like creatures that grow in colonies on the ocean floor.  With over 4,500 varieties, sea sponges have the ability to regenerate from even the tiniest fragments left from the original sponge.  As sponges are harvested, millions of eggs and sperm cells  are released into the surrounding water, making the sponge a renewable resource that provides an ecologically sound product for menstrual use.

Domino Pads

See my review here.

 

Karin at Domino Pads was so kind to send me these 2 lovely pads to review.  She started making pads because she needed a better choice for herself after having her first child.  You can read her story here.
