Menstrual panties change the rules! They represent a real step forward in the field of women’s health. A woman has her period 2250 days in her life, that’s more than six years!
(The calculation was made for cycles of 28 days and periods of 5 days). The importance of being able to access healthy health protection is therefore a crucial public and environmental health issue. Menstrual panties from the French brand Réjeanne They are made with certified materials free of harmful substances.
Disposable protection in numbers
shock absorbers in the oceans
- 11,000 disposable protections used, on average, per woman throughout her life.
- In France, 2 billion tampons and sanitary napkins are thrown away every year.
- 45 billion worldwide, or 1,447 every second and 590 tons of waste for Europe.
- A tampon takes almost half a millennium to break down in nature.
Figures that are dizzying and allow a better understanding of the considerations behind the phrase “periodic protections are responsible for heavy pollution”.
Their quantity is a considerable problem that could well represent only the tip of the iceberg since the composition of these disposable protections is responsible for the release of many toxic substances in nature.
Harmful substances in towels
L’image de l’iceberg est bien choisie, les manufacturers étant toujours aussi vagues sur le subject de la composition alors même que des études ont demontré the presence of chemical components et d’other undesirable substances nocives pour la santé, mais aussi pour l ‘environment :
- carcinogenic products,
- Endocrine disruptors…
There is something for everyone: chlorine, glyphosate (the same one that is banned in Europe), phthalates, dioxins…
Thus, for more than 6 years (an average is true but even less is maintained for a long time), the intimacy of menstruating people comes into contact with all these chemicals.

When ecology rhymes with saving
It is true that menstrual panties represent a certain investment, an investment that quickly pays for itself. In fact, washable and therefore reusable for many years, the period panties save waste and money.
Each woman spends between €4 and €5 on average per month on regular protection. This is between €260 and €325 over 5 years (not counting all the panties damaged by a small leak that we had to buy again). Please note that menstrual panties can be machine washed on a cold cycle to significantly save energy.
