Sustainable Cloth Pads

Overview of Sustainable Cloth Pads

As part of Moody V, a queer-owned and operated company deeply committed to providing sustainable menstrual products, we’ve seen firsthand the positive impact of switching to reusable cloth pads. Our range includes options tailored for every need, from regular to overnight protection, all designed with the environment and comfort in mind.

Benefits of Sustainable Cloth Pads

Health and Comfort: Our cloth pads are made from 100% cotton flannel and terry, materials known for their breathability and comfort. Unlike many disposable options, they’re free from chemicals and fragrances, reducing the risk of irritation and allowing your skin to breathe.

Economic Savings: While the initial investment in cloth pads may be higher, they’re designed to last for years. This longevity can lead to significant savings over time, cutting down the monthly expense on menstrual products.

Environmental Impact: By opting for reusable pads, you’re contributing to a reduction in landfill waste. It’s a simple switch with a profound impact on our planet’s health.

Comparison Between Sustainable Cloth Pads and Disposable Pads

Disposable pads are convenient but come at a cost to both your wallet and the environment. They contribute to the millions of tons of waste filling up landfills. Moreover, they often contain synthetic materials and chemicals that can be harsh on sensitive skin. In contrast, cloth pads like those from Moody V offer a sustainable, gentle alternative that takes both your health and the planet into consideration.

Environmental Impact of Sustainable Cloth Pads

Our commitment at Moody V extends to the planet. By using cloth pads, you’re not only reducing waste but also supporting sustainable manufacturing practices. The production of disposable pads is resource-intensive, generating significant carbon emissions. Cloth pads, on the other hand, are made from natural materials and are reusable, lessening the demand on resources and the overall environmental footprint.

How to Care for Sustainable Cloth Pads

Caring for your cloth pads is straightforward and doesn’t require any special products or equipment. Simply rinse them in cold water after use and then wash them in your regular laundry load. They’re designed to dry quickly, ensuring they’re ready for your next cycle. With proper care, Moody V pads can last for up to five years, making them a truly sustainable choice.

Materials Used in Sustainable Cloth Pads

We carefully select the materials for our pads to ensure they’re both comfortable and effective. Our regular absorbency pads are made from 100% cotton, while our heavy absorbency pads feature a layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) for leakproof protection. All our materials are chosen for their environmental credentials and skin-friendly properties.

Purchase Options for Sustainable Cloth Pads

Moody V offers a wide range of cloth pads to suit various needs and preferences. Whether you require regular, heavy, or overnight absorbency, or prefer liners for lighter days, we have you covered. Our accessories, like Pad Bags and Snap Extenders, further enhance the utility and convenience of our pads.

Reviews of Sustainable Cloth Pads

Our customers often express satisfaction with the comfort and reliability of Moody V pads, highlighting the peace of mind and reduced environmental impact they enjoy by making the switch. The positive feedback reinforces our commitment to quality and sustainability, encouraging us to continue improving and expanding our offerings.

Sustainable Practices in Cloth Pad Production

At Moody V, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. From choosing eco-friendly materials to minimizing waste in our production processes, we’re dedicated to making products that are not only good for you but also kind to the planet. Our approach includes using recycled packaging and ensuring that our operations reflect our commitment to environmental stewardship.

Moody Reviews

These pads feel *heavenly* to wear. Soft, barely noticeable but not too lightweight, and they stay in place all day!!! I love them, I can’t wait to get my next paycheck so I can order more. :) these were my first experience with the switch to reusables and I’m very impressed. If anyone else is on the edge of starting this route, GO FOR IT. Especially if you’ve ever suffered from itchiness from those plastic pad materials..this is so much better.


It's my first time buying reusable pads and I'm really happy with this pair. The print and design sold me, but the comfort and reliability have exceeded my expectations. They work for daytime and overnight use with no problems compared to disposable pads. Wish I bought these sooner. They're a total game changer for periods.


Beautiful pattern, expertly stitched, and lovely seller. Beyond happy. Very fast shipping too! Thank you so much!!! ❤️


High-quality, low maintenance reusable pads! Really nice, and they do stain but that can’t really be helped aside from doing a quick handwash before tossing it in the machine. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future!


These are the best!! They are not bulky and the fabric is so comfortable. I have tried shapes and patterns from several of the best selling shops and these are my favorite.


I like that they have metal snaps! The ones I have with plastic snaps do not last as long. I think these will hold up for a few years. Thank you!

Confusion Checkpoint

I know right!? Ok, so cloth menstrual pads are a washable, reusable alternative to disposable pads. Pretty sweet, right?

  • The regular absorbency pads are good for light to moderate flows. They are 100% cotton, with a layer of terry cloth (towel material) inside for absorbency. Cotton is a moisture wicking and breathable fabric, which allows menstrual fluid to dry rapidly, keeping you comfy and dry. This also means that these cloth pads can absorb a surprising amount of fluid!
  • The heavy absorbency pads are perfect for moderate to heavy flows. Heavy pads are longer than regular pads. These pads are primarily cotton, with cotton flannel and terry cloth for absorbency and breathability. Additionally, they have a layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) inside. This is a waterproof, laminated fabric that protects you from leakage. In the heavy pads, the PUL lining is in the pad core (the part that’s shaped like a peanut)!
  • The overnight cloth pads are great for heavy flows, and for overnight use. Overnight pads are longer than heavy pads, and flare out at each end. These pads are made of cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and PUL lining. In the overnights, the PUL lining extends throughout the entire base of the pad, so even the wings are leakproof!

Cloth liners are lovely for really light days, and as a backup for a tampon or menstrual cup. They are made of five layers of cotton. They are soft, barely noticeable, and peace of mind for that bit of protection.

Moody V regular absorbency pads and cloth liners are made with 100% cotton, which makes your down-there oh-so happy. Cotton is a breathable, moisture wicking fabric that creates a difficult environment for yucky bacteria like yeast to grow. 

Disposable pads are mostly synthetic, which is fully not nice to your body. They’re made out of bleached wood pulp (what the?) and non-biodegradable materials.

Moody V’s heavy cloth pads and overnight cloth pads are also primarily cotton. They have a polyurethane lining inside, which keeps moisture from leaking through. This lining is non-biodegradable (I know, it sucks). But remember, you’re not just gonna throw it away, you’ll probably use it like, 100 times.

The regular absorbency pads are made with cotton flannel and cotton terry cloth (like a towel material). Liners are just cotton flannel. Ugh! So simple! Love that!

The heavy cloth menstrual pads and overnight cloth pads are made with cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and polyurethane laminate. Ugh! Slightly less simple but still wow amazing and great! Love that!

Look at the “Wh-. . . What? Who? Where? What?” question at the top of this FAQ page to learn out each variety of pads work!

Method 1: Rinse with cold water ASAP to reduce staining. Machine wash cold, then air dry thoroughly to maintain a nice shape.

Method 2: Machine wash cold, tumble dry.*

*Method 2 gets your pad clean and ready to use again real quick, but may result in light staining and scrunching-up in the dryer. (Stains fade over time and you can stretch the pad gently with your hands to un-scrunch it.)

Some folks like to keep a container of cool water in their bathroom so they can soak their pads until they’re ready to wash them. This helps remove stains without using chemicals or potentially fabric-damaging products.

It’s recommended to avoid using fabric softener, as it makes fabric less absorbent.

Another good rule of thumb is not to use anything on your pads you wouldn’t wash your underwear with. Your pads are gonna be up close and personal with a sensitive area, so avoid harsh or irritating chemicals when washing them.

Cloth pads contain several layers of fabric, which means it might need extra time drying. Make sure they’re super dry out of the dryer or dry them in the sun to prevent mildew. Do be aware that sun-drying can result in fabric discoloration.
