I have posted about using menstrual cups before here. They are amazing since the average menstruating person will use 12,000 to 16,000 disposable pads, tampons, and pantyliners in their lifetime. That is A LOT of trash.
While menstrual cups are awesome (I'm a devoted fan), what happens if you are a person who wants a waste free alternative to disposable tampons and pads but don't want to, you know... stick somethin' up there?
I have a solution. Reusable organic cotton pads.
Besides being great for the environment, you can also save a lot of money by making the switch from disposable pads to reusable ones.
Disposable Pads: $10/month x 12 months = $120/year or $600 for 5 years
Reusable Pads: $150/ one time cost or $150 for 5 years
That alone makes the switch worth it, but then you have the added benefits of not making trash, not exposing your body to toxic chemicals, and less wasted energy from the manufacturing, packaging, and transportation waste of producing and shipping these products.
I'm teaming up with GladRags to give a lucky winner a starter kit containing an organic day pad and night pad! You'll love them!
