  • Reusable face pads, Breast Pads & Sanitary Pads | Rosies Eco Store

    Welcome to Rosie's Eco Store Ireland Every woman has her story At Rosie's Eco Store Ireland, I strongly believe every woman should have access to information about her body and what she does with it. Also I want to inspire todays' women by taking inspiration from those who have paved the way for us in the past. I am a strong advocate for the environment, which is why making the change to reusable is so important to me, and just one of the things we can all do to improve the world around us. Single use plastic is just one problem, but it's a problem we can all easily make better if we just make some small changes. My belief is I can help support those changes with my selection of reusable menstrual pads, incontinence pads, panty liners, breast pads and face pads. All products are hand made and designed by me, Rose, in Kildare from my small business at home. And I enjoy every minute.

Did you know that discharge is perfectly normal and actually kind of amazing as the vagina cleans itself? Did you know women suffer from incontinence more due to the shortened length of their urethra? And did you know as women we are still embarrassed to talk about periods, discharge, vaginas and even to be seen going to the bathroom to change a pad? Periods are normal, vaginas are amazing and we need to start being proud of them and how strong we are as women, and also giving them the best care. Disposable products are 90% plastic, the are also bleached and trap moisture and bacteria leading to smells and irritation. Reusable products are softer, more breathable and better for your wallet and the environment. Women of Ireland have started making the change already, make sure to join them!
