• Are Yoni pads and pantyliners biodegradable? + -

    Yes, Yoni pads and panty liners are biodegradable. They are made from organic cotton and have a bioplastic backing. This means they can be thrown on the compost heap or just in the normal trash.  Most of the individual packaging is made from cornstarch and hence also biodegradable. Unfortunately only the paper stuck to the sticky side of the pad and panty liner is not compostable. This is something we are working on. And of course don’t forget to throw the outer carton packaging in the paper bin.

  • Are Yoni tampons biodegradable? + -

    Yes, Yoni tampons are biodegradable. You can throw them on the compost heap because they are made from 100% organic cotton. Unfortunately, the individual packaging of the tampon (the plastic wrapper) is not biodegradable. We tried bioplastic but it isn’t strong enough yet to hold the tampon together or it made it impossible to open. This is something we are working on and hope to change in the future. And of course don’t forget to throw the outer carton packaging in the paper bin.

  • Are Yoni products reusable? + -

    No, our products are not reusable, they are disposable. The products themselves are biodegradable and therefore environmentally friendly.

  • Can I flush Yoni tampons or pads? + -

    Yoni tampons and pads are biodegradable but we do not recommend flushing them as all tampons and pads can cause blockages in your plumbing or septic systems.
