Why Choose Cloth Pads:
→ Body Friendly: Cloth pads are comfortable and more breathable than disposables. They do not carry the same risk of drying you out or causing TSS like tampons. They are also free of harmful chemicals and fragrances that can cause irritation.
→ Earth Friendly: The average American woman will use 16,000 disposable menstrual products in her lifetime. This produces tons of waste, from the product itself to the wrappers, applicators, and packaging they come in – much of which is plastic that will take 500+ years to degrade. Replacing these products with washable, reusable products you are making an ecofriendly choice.
→ Budget Friendly: The longevity of cloth pads adds up! Your initial investment in your cloth pads will eliminate the monthly cost of running to the store to purchase disposables.
