"Flushable pads now exist and we're so excited. We only wish they'd been invented sooner."

"The future of femcare is here..."

"These flushable pads are super kind to the planet and will degrade before your next period."

How can it be absorbent and flushable?

Simply put, a toilet flush is 9 litres. A 5-day period is 40-100ml. The pad needs to be submerged in water and flushed to start breaking down.

After trying Planera's flushable pads, I can't go back. The fact it is flushable is insane.

Straightforward answers to some of the most common questions we hear

PLANERA's pads have been successfully and independently tested in accordance with the UK's water industry specification for flushability testing (WIS 4-02-06) – so yes, you can confidently flush us away.

The pad breaks down in two parts. First, with the hydraulic action of your toilet flush, the layers of the pad get pulled apart and can start making its way down the drain line. Then, the 3mm cellulose fibres loosen and break apart. These steps ensure that your pad will have disintegrated by the time it reaches your local municipal plant and can be treated along with toilet paper and sewage.

Remember! PLANERA’s sanitary pads are the only sanitary products you can safely flush away. Don’t try this with other sanitary products!

We are certified flushable in the UK. Our materials are still fully biodegradable & water-dispersible anywhere in the world.

Our proprietary UpFlowTM technology works by absorbing the blood from the top of the pad, traps it in the core where the barrier protects you. Our pads have been tested for up to 24 hours in the lab, in 8ml of real blood (no blue liquid). An average 5 day period is estimated at 20-35ml of blood, so our pads provide protection for a medium to heavy flow.

We recommend you wear PLANERA pads for a maximum of 8 hours.

We have finished our free trials. Sign up to our community to be the first to know when we run our next trials.

Organic pads contain one or more layers of typically organic cotton. Organic products do not use chemical fertilizer or pesticides – which means no artificial chemicals will harm the user, but unfortunately does not mean that it’s kind to the planet.

Other layers in an organic pad can still contain single-use plastic which doesn’t degrade away. There still remains the question of how to sustainably dispose of the organic pads, as they still get incinerated, stuck in waterways or end up in landfill.

We took out ALL unsustainable additives such as the glue sprayed in between the layers, the harmful super-absorbant polymer in the core and of course got rid of the plastic backing. We use well-known natural materials that are used in agriculture (safe for human consumption, so safe for pads), food processing (definitely safe for you) as well as develop new water-dispersible and biodegradable glue for the pad to stick to your underwear.

Every time you use PLANERA, you can be confident that you are not harming yourself or the planet.

We currently have one size of pad available: a winged regular-sized pad, that has medium-heavy absorbency. Soon we'll be expanding the range into long night pads and smaller liners.

You wear it the same way as a conventional pad. Peel from wrapper and stick in your underwear.

PLANERA gives you the choice of disposal whichever works best for you. Bin it or flush it - it is your choice.

Our pads use a unique non-toxic water dispersible adhesive unlike conventional pads, so your experience of using them may be a bit different from what you are used to.

Our natural adhesive may not stick like your usual brand but it will stay in place! We suggest wearing cotton underwear.

Our plant based materials may have natural discolourations - we refuse to bleach or add any unnecessary chemicals!

For low impact activity, we recommend wearing the pad for up to 8 hours.

For hight impact activity, we suggest changing after your activity.

Our wrapper is made of the same material as our UpFlow barrier and is therefore fully water-dispersible and biodegradable.

Stay tuned - we will be open our store with limited stock every month! We are in the middle of scaling production and fulfilling as many orders as we can.
