Brand Story: Aisle
The company, Aisle is not only renowned for its high quality, high performance products but for their commitment to ethical business and sustainability. They have been a “Best For The World” B Corp since 2017.
Aisle launched the first line of modern reusable period products in 1993 with a core belief that we all deserve comfortable, earth-friendly products that actually work for us.
A cloth pad that feels just like your most comfortable pair of underwear, Aisle's Maxi Pad is built to outperform disposables and handle your heaviest period, without harming the planet.
Simply snap the two wings together (tag side down) onto your normal underwear for edge-to-edge leak protection even on your heaviest period days. The reusable pad comes in 2 sizes, Mini & Maxi. Both sizes come with a super comfortable wicking cotton top layer that absorbs 4x as much as the Aisle liner.
This pad was designed to fit into your regular laundry routine. No need to soak - just give them a quick rinse in cool water, then wash and dry with your next load of laundry.

Tackling the taboo:
While periods aren't exactly something to celebrate for many of us, they're a natural bodily function that should not be seen as squeamish or gross.
At Aisle, founders Suzanne and Madeleine provide people with periods with safe, effective and sustainable options designed for their comfort. Aisle is committed to transparency, sustainability, and inclusivity and have been actively tackling the period-related stigma around the world. To date, Aisle has mentored and assisted the launch of several organizations, and helped supply reusable pads and period underwear to more than 17,000 menstruating people in 18 different countries.
