Our Impact Our Impact
Everything we do has an environmental or social impact.
The period care industry is no exception.
Each year, over 20 billion pads, tampons and applicators enter landfills and waterways in North America. Many of these products take over 500 years to biodegrade.
Aisle products are reusable for years, and have a significantly lower environmental footprint compared to conventional tampons and pads.
CO2 emissions are reduced up to 95%
Energy consumption is reduced up to 94%
Waste is reduced
by up to 99%
It all adds up It all adds up
On average a menstruator will use over 11,000 disposable period products in their lifetime.
Switching to Aisle pads and underwear reduces waste by 99% and C02 emissions by 95%. Our LCA has the data to prove it.Learn more
Fast fashion is destroying the planet
The apparel industry is the third worst polluter in the world.
Fast fashion brands are flooding the market with cheaply made period underwear that harm the planet. Don’t be fooled: there’s nothing sustainable about a product that doesn’t last, doesn’t fit and won’t be worn again and again.
Making a material difference
Most disposable pads and tampons are made with chemicals and plastics.
At Aisle, we do our very best to source the most sustainable textiles so you can feel really good about your choices. Our pads and underwear use a combination of safe, eco-certified materials like organic cotton, Tencel™, and recycled polyester.See materials list
Our pad manufacturing facility is zero waste, and we’ve diverted over 10,800 pounds of textile waste from landfills since 2018.
Annually, we use the third party services of Climate Smart to measure and report on scope 2 and 3 for our GhG emissions.
