It has been said that we are now in the era of sustainability. A lot of brands and businesses nowadays are leaning towards having eco-friendly options for their customers. And truth be told–we love the movement! Here at Parlon, we’re firm believers that every effort, no matter how small, goes a long way in helping keep our planet safe.
So, we went on the hunt for earth-friendly things and brands that you can incorporate into your daily life. From tiny luxuries to the ultimate necessities, we’ve rounded them up below!
Suds Sustainable Pods
Suds Sustainable Pods advocates for a new wave of cleaning–one that skips on the use of plastic sachets and soaps in plastic bottles. What they offer are personal hygiene and household cleaning products packaged in water-soluble film that's biodegradable, non-toxic, and waste-free. Their line of products includes handwash, dishwashing liquids, oxygen bleach, laundry pods, and all-purpose cleaners.

One study showed that a woman will use around 11,400 pads in her lifetime. And we know that most pads are either individually wrapped in plastic, lined with synthetics, or both. Now, multiply the number of women in the world with the average number of pads they will use, and that would equate to tons of plastic waste!
Cojo is on a mission to help women make conscious choices, even on their periods. They have a fine line of organic bamboo pads with no harmful chemicals that are infused with mint, aloe, and rose to help soothe and keep your cool down there. They also use biodegradable wrappers and covers, which are always good for Mama Earth.

Nala is another brand that makes organic menstrual products, including pads, tampons, and pantyliners. All of these are made with organic cotton and are hypoallergenic, which means that you’re less likely to get irritations, itching, and allergies. They are also free from dyes, plastics, bleach, fragrances, and other harmful chemicals.

Not a fan of wearing pads? Tempo’s organic tampons help make periods easy, worry-free, and, best of all, comfortable. Each tampon is extra absorbent because it's made from 100% purified cotton grown in the USA. And, they decompose within 5 months after use, so you know they won’t be settling in landfills as extra waste.

If you’re neither a pad nor a tampon user, then menstrual cups are a great, eco-friendly alternative. These ones from Mirko are FDA-certified and made with 100% medical grade silicone. They also come in a variety of firmness levels for your comfort. Plus, these cups can last up to 10 years! Just imagine how much money you’ll be able to save every month.

FILI offers the Philippines’ first biodegradable phone cases made out of wheat fiber, making them not just 100% biodegradable, but 100% compostable as well.
