Introducing LastPad - The Reusable Menstruation PadSeptember 3, 2021 · Maria Harutyunyan
Summer’s winding down and the days are getting shorter but there’s still lots to celebrate at LastObject. As temperatures and tree leaves start to drop, we remain in high spirits, thanks to the introduction of a new sustainable product for our ever-growing community of zero-waste warriors.
We’re very excited to announce the launch of our latest creation — LastPad. This newest addition to the LastObject family of products is a reusable alternative to single-use menstruation pads. Without a doubt, maintaining a lifestyle that’s friendly to the environment can be challenging, but with LastPad, it just got a little easier for women everywhere.
What is LastPad?
LastPad is a menstrual pad that is comfortable, reusable, leak-proof, and extra absorbent. Cutting-edge triple-layer design makes LastPad healthier for both you and the environment as follows.
- The top layer is made from antibacterial polyester, which keeps you and your clothes hygienic, while also reducing the fungi and bacteria that produce odors.
- The middle layer is made out of a highly absorbent polyester and bamboo blend. This is a much more absorbent material than cotton, keeping you dry and comfortable for longer.
- The bottom layer is made out of thermoplastic polyurethane. This effectively traps the liquid inside the pad, to ensure you don’t encounter any leakage mishaps.
LastPad features revolutionary strips that keep it in place beneath your underwear. Simply wrap the pad's wings around your underwear and you are good to go.
Each reusable menstrual pad also comes with its own pouch for easy storage. As soon as you finish with one, you can easily fold it and return it to the pouch (until it’s time for a wash), replacing it with a clean one. Then get back to the rest of your day!
LastPads come in three sizes:
- The Pantyliner, for light days
- The Day Pad, for average flows
- Overnight Pads, for heavy flows and sleeping protection.
To clean the pads, simply remove them from the pouch, place them in a mesh bag, and wash them with the rest of your clothes in the washing machine.
The Impact of LastPads
Single-use feminine hygiene products are a growing threat to the planet’s wellbeing. In the US alone, it’s estimated that 19 billion of these items are thrown away each year. Similarly, the European Commission has found that menstrual products are the fifth most common plastic waste item found in the oceans. To put this in context, around 1.4 million single-use menstrual pads are washed down a toilet every day, and each one takes roughly 500 years to break down.
We decided to do something to help alleviate this crisis and that’s how LastPad was born. In addition to the unparalleled comfort and ease of use, each reusable pad has a five-year guarantee and is good for over 240 uses. When you buy a pack of nine LastPads, you will essentially be saving the environment from 2,880 single-use pads and their accompanying perilous effects.
In addition to benefiting the planet, LastPads are also very economical. The average woman will spend thousands of dollars buying single-use menstrual pads across her lifetime. You can significantly reduce this expense by opting for high-quality reusable alternatives instead.
With LastPads you can now make “that time of the month” a lot less messy, a lot less expensive, and a lot more friendly to the environment.
