Planera Reviews

Experience

I want to love this product. I really do! It ticks all the boxes of being a sustainable brand tackling a huge problem, but unfortunately the pads I tested in their first trials were thick and uncomfortable and the formulation of the glue melted into my underwear. It was not a pleasant experience.

Feedback

The product still has a while to go before being customer friendly and a fair replacement for existing products. Also the price point at £7 for 15 pads is just extortionate.

Has no effect 🤷

I have been testing the pads for over a year. I love flushing my pads away - no more dirty bins or smells and no more landfills or microplastics. For full transparency: I am part of the Planera team and have been developing the flushable pad with our community for the last 4 years.

Feedback

I personally would like to see pads in different shapes for different uses (eg. night and liners). We have been improving our water-dispersible adhesive that sticks the pad to underwear as initially, it was not sticky enough, then too sticky and now we got it just right.

I work for the company and it is definitely the best job I have ever had. I help design the product, but not tooting my own horn too much, it is a pretty ground breaking product. Try it out!

We are working on a number of improvements, please share more suggestions!

Amazing! I can’t believe that this doesn’t already exist. Super comfortable to wear, and feels a lot more hygienic and environmentally friendly than binning it.
