Eco-responsible menstrual pants that reflect our commitments

1 of 8


Growing organic cotton

Conventional cotton growing is unfortunately very harmful to the environment: chemical fertilizers, pesticides, excessive water consumption, bleaching of the fiber with harmful substances... Even though it accounts for more than half of the world's textile consumption.

Organic cotton, on the other hand, is grown using half as much water and natural compost. Harvesting and dyeing are carried out using more body-neutral products, to limit the risk of allergies.

However, the organic label only applies to the cotton-growing stage. To take our approach even further, we have also obtained certifications for the production of our finished products, thus ensuring that our lingerie is safe all the way through.

Preserving resources

Our wood-fiber absorbent material, which we use in our menstrual lingerie technology, is made in Austria, whose production is also highly respectful of the environment.

The use of bamboo, a victim of massive deforestation, did not reflect our values: at Elia, we chose to work witheucalyptus fiber.

Like our organic cotton, the fabric made from these wood fibers is entirely biodegradable.

Our materials


Fully integrated workshops

Our workshops receive all these raw materials and transform them on site to obtain our finished product.

They are committed to limiting transport and their carbon footprint: knitting, cutting, embroidery, assembly... Here, everything is made in France, thanks to the hundreds of jobs generated by this activity.

Waste and fabric offcuts are even recycled, for a circuit with as little waste as possible.

Our Made in France


Our prints are climate-neutral

Whenever possible, we try to limit the CO2 emissions associated with our printing.

What does this mean? It means that Elia offsets the quantity of greenhouse gases emitted during the printing of our communication materials. This is particularly true of our support booklets, for example, which are enclosed with your order.

To this end, thanks to ClimatePartner, we are supporting the reforestation of the Amazon rainforest in the Parà region of Brazil. Tropical forests store a lot of CO2 and are the lungs of the Earth. Elia is proud to contribute to this project, thanks to you.

Waste-free production

Elia aims to be eco-responsible and sustainable. Sales and fast-fashion are often the result of overproduction of textile products, at the cost of a disastrous ecological footprint and a waste of polluting raw materials during manufacture. So at Elia, we prefer to produce exactly what we need, with natural, high-quality raw materials.

Our pricing policy is to offer you the best quality at the fairest price. We have chosen to produce everything in France to ensure traceability and maximum comfort of our panties, without compromise.

Thank you for supporting us!


Recyclable packaging

Our shipments are plastic-free and we try to keep over-packaging to a minimum: our products are simply wrapped in reusable tissue paper to protect them during transport: an envelope for lighter shipments, a recyclable or compostable cardboard box for larger orders!

We also limit the number of paper invoices in your parcel, which can be sent to you by email on request!

Your most frequently asked questions about eco-responsibility at Elia

Is it economical to use period pants?

Absolutely! If you're using disposable sanitary protection, that's just as much money and waste going into the garbage can every cycle. In the long term, period pants are more economical. But beyond the cost savings you make with menstrual lingerie, using period pants is above all a commitment to the planet (zero waste, fewer pollutants...) and to your body (100% organic cotton, no risk of toxic shock syndrome...).

Is Elia menstrual lingerie vegan?

At Elia, we don't use any materials derived from animal fibers: our absorbent zone is made from wood fiber textile, and the fabric of our panties is cotton.

We try to choose our fabrics with respect for the environment. To find out more about the different materials that make up our lingerie and absorbent zone, discover our technology in greater detail.

How long do menstrual pants last?

If you take good care of it, our lingerie has the same lifespan as classic lingerie: 5 to 7 years!

So it's a sustainable product with a low ecological footprint that's an urgent addition to your eco-responsible wardrobe!
