The Kindness Factory

A popular Victoria-based company most commonly known for creating unique masks has added a new inclusive product line.

The Kindness Factory launched their ‘zeropad‘ line on February 26th – a reusable menstrual pad lineup for all humans who bleed.

The reusable cloth pads not only reduce waste, they can save you money, and even better? Won’t leak when used as directed!

Zeropad carries 6 sizes from mini light to postpartum, an adjustable width with multiple snaps on the wings, and a specially formatted backing meaning the pads don’t slide when you wear them.

They also come in a variety of different colours, and their website even offers waterproof pouches for discrete transport.

“As we look to a future where masks are less commonplace, we have chosen to continue being kind to the planet by making other high-quality reusable products,” said CEO and Founder Karmen McNamara.

“Reusable pads seem like the perfect fit,” McNamara added.

McNamara adds that reusable pads are more comfortable than disposables and create significantly less waste. They’re also designed to last up to five years, and are washer/dryer friendly!

You can order your pads online today, via single purchase or by subscription – which saves you 15% off!

You can also snag your order for 15% off with the exclusive promo code VICBUZZ from now until March 31st!

The Kindness Factory was founded in March 2020 in response to a community need for reusable masks and has since grown to 18 people: 1 founder, 3 employees, and 14 contractors.

The company offers contact-free pickup at their location on Hillside Avenue.
