Our story: In 2020, our neighbouring factory needed help to save both the jobs of their workers and their fabrics that would have gone to landfill if they shut down, after several orders were cancelled due to the pandemic.
Although the type of fabric was not what we would normally use, we realised if they weren't going to be repurposed, the fabric would go straight to landfill and contribute to even more waste that our planet is suffering from.
So we made 22,000 pairs of period pants from the factory's fabric. Thereby, safeguarding the future of the factory and saving hundreds of jobs.
We donated 2000 to Days For Girls International’, a non-profit organisation, and over 800 to the NHS. Now the rest are here for you, when they're gone they're gone!
I looked into buying these as I've been keen to cut down on waste for a long time, and up until now have been using washable pads. While the washables have been a pretty good solution to disposable pads, they caused a lot of chaffing when I would cycle every day to and from work, and I would dread the commute!
I've worn these for the first time during my period, and they're a LIFE SAVER. They're so comfortable to wear whenever I cycle (no more chaffing!), and throughout the day as well. They work perfectly for my period, and I've had absolutely no issues with leaking, odours or anything else. I've worn one pair for the entire day and not had to change thorughout the day. They fit so well and are just like wearing regular knickers, but with the bonus of not having to worry about changing pads or contribute to the issue of waste. Love them so much, thank you!!
I bought my daughter some of these when her periods started coming regularly. She was getting really heavy bleeds but these pants cope really well, day or night. My friend who also has heavy periods recommended Wuka period pants to me, and I'm really happy we took the plunge. My daughter happily uses them, and prefers them to using towels. Great product, and pleased to support this innovative company.
Great period pants and would highly recommend. They are cuter than the regular cotton WUKA but I prefer that full material of cotton. Both have full coverage though and I'm happy with the purchase.
