So you love the look of Matersum Pads and you love that they 100% certified organic or Eco-friendly but you’re scared to use them because there is no waterproofing. It’s okay. Read on.
There are a few types of waterproofing: synthetics like polyester fleece and PUL which are the most popular and natural fiber like wool.
As a dedicated environmentalist, I can no longer condone the use of synthetic fabrics. Derived from oil, polyester micro fleece and PUL will not degrade for hundreds of years once we toss an aged pad. It’s great that the pads can last 5 or more years, but ultimately they still end up in a landfill.
Wool, I love wool. But modern wool production can be a really bad existence for a sheep, much akin to the harsh conditions food livestock have to live in. Certified organic wool from ethical farms exist, but for the moment it remains prohibitively expensive.
To compensate for a lack of waterproofing, Matersum Pads are made with at least TWO TIMES the number of absorbent layers that most other brands of pads are made with. That’s a lot of certified organic cotton goodness! Used to only 2 or 3 layers of protection? Most Matersum Pads are made with 4 or 6 layers and yet remain less bulky!
So why not gIve Matersum Pads a try: they’re scrumptiously soft, exceptionally luxurious, highly absorbent and earth-friendly to boot!
