Brand:  Cheeky Wipes

Cheeky Wipes mission is to provide simple reusable alternatives to single-use products, and this is why we are SUPER excited to be partnering with non-profit City to Sea, with their mission to reduce plastic pollution at source.

Here in the UK a staggering 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used every year! Many people don’t realise that most period and incontinence pads (including Always, Bodyform and most supermarket own-brands) can contain up to 90% plastic – the equivalent of five plastic bags per pack of 14 pads. Most tampons also contain a thin layer of plastic.

What’s more, although no period products should go down the loo, it’s estimated that between 1.5 – 2 billion menstrual products are flushed down UK loos every year. Many of these items block our sewer systems and escape into our rivers and seas. Period products are now the 5th most common item found littering European beaches.

We've created a range of co-branded products to help raise funds and awareness of their fantastic work. For one of these pads purchased, we’ll give £1 to City to Sea.

What's the difference between these and the cotton pads? The bamboo minky pads are made of bamboo or charcoal with a minky outer, being manmade materials, these tend to be a little warmer to wear than the cotton pads. The bamboo minky pads are also slightly thicker and therefore more absorbent than cotton pads, so if your periods are on the heavy side, we'd recommend the bamboo minky rather than the cotton.

Cheeky Mama Cloth Sanitary Pads are an eco-friendly, healthier, more cost effective alternative to disposable pads. For those new to cloth sanitary pads (csp) the concept can be a little “Ew!” but to be honest using cloth as opposed to disposables is more comfortable. Because they are so much more absorbent, moisture is drawn into the pad, leaving you feeling fresher for longer.

Disposables have to contain lots of nasty toxic chemicals, dioxins and gels to enable them to be absorbent, which can lead to sensitive skin, irritation and thrush. Bamboo however, has a natural antibacterial quality and because it allows your skin to breath, can potentially reduce the risk of yeast infections and discomfort.

Of course it goes without saying that cloth pads will cost a fraction of what you would be spending on disposables each month which just end up sitting in landfill!
