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 bought a 5 of regular pants for my daughter age 12. ( WUKA Basics). I was so impressed with them I bought 3 of the Earth day pants for myself! They are soft and a lot more elegant. They have a lovely lace around the top. I'm a size 10 and I bought the medium and they fit perfectly. They look massive but once on they're fine.
I didn't want my awful experience of starting my periods at 11 to happen to my beautiful daughter. I choose WUKA for her and I'm so glad I did.
I love the story behind them the Earth day pants. As a teacher, I cannot just leave the room so I've had a few accidents in the past. I don't want this ever to be the experience for my daughter.
As a science teacher at my school, I also teach students ( girls and boys) about mensuration and I've shown them the WUKA website and what the pants do. Well done WUKA. Every teen girl in Stamford will want a pair! And every teen boy will know what they are!
Bought these for my daughter as she started her periods. What a fantastic product, just sad they were not available when I needed them. Love that we are not having to buy disposable alternatives. The saving on the environment and my finances completely makes up for the quick rinse and wash.
Teenage daughter – one pair basics and one Earth Day. The sizing was accurate. Both have been fantastic. First use coincided with a long day of traveling, so they were properly tested! No leaks, no worries, no smell. Really easy to rinse out and reuse on our trip. The environmental impact was an important extra for us and we’ll be buying more and recommending widely.
