Natracare offer a range of pantyliners made using USDA-certified organic cotton and plant-based materials (View Price on Amazon). The liners are all free from plastics, perfumes and chlorine, other synthetic materials and skin irritants, and are breathable, soft, and available in several shapes and sizes.
Natracare pantyliners are all totally free of chlorine bleach, perfumes, rayon, plastics, and other synthetics. Instead, they are made with natural materials that are at least 90 percent biodegradable, including plant cellulose and organic cotton.
Thanks to the natural materials, Natracare pads are breathable, soft, and comfortable to use and don’t have that plasticky feel or sound common to conventional pads. They are especially loved by people with sensitive skin and are slimline and discrete.
Natracare state that their products are 95-100 percent biodegradable and always compostable. They use over 99 percent biodegradable and compostable plant cellulose instead of super absorbent polymers, and they have a robust environmental and ethical policy, which can be found here.
Natracare’s Curved liners are shaped for extra comfort, Mini liners have a straight-edged shape and a slim fit, Tanga liners are for use with thongs (g-strings) and have wings to help hold the liner in place, and the Ultra Thin liner is, as it sounds, even thinner than the regular liners so you barely even know it’s there. The Normal and Long liners are also available individually wrapped for convenience on-the-go.
As always, it works out cheaper to buy in bulk:

Natracare vs. Organyc vs. Seventh Generation
Natracare’s key competitors are Organyc and Seventh Generation, who do many of the same things as Natracare and, for the most part, just as well. Natracare are the leaders in this field, though, having been around the longest and with the best track record of following through on their environmental and health promises. They are very transparent in their business practices and actively work to support sustainability. This includes keeping packaging to a minimum, which may mean some individuals prefer the wrapped Seventh Generation pads (View Price on Amazon) over the unwrapped Maxi Pads and some of the pantyliners from Natracare.
