The Benefits Of Reusable Cloth Menstrual Pads


ENVIRONMENTAL & FINANCIAL

1 New Moon Pad = 200 Disposable Pads

New Moon Pads unique design, workmanship, and high quality fabrics give them over twice the life expectancy (10 years) than that of other pads, which means they cost less than half as much in the long run.  Paying for themselves in just 1 to 2 years from the cost of disposables means 8 to 9 years of cost-free menstrual protection every 10 years.  On average, 10,000 to 15,000 disposable menstrual products would be thrown away over the estimated 40 years from puberty to menopause.  Compare that to cloth.  If purchasing 20 to 25 cloth pads every 10 years, only 80 to 100 cloth pads total would be needed.  Switching to cloth can save thousands of dollars AND disposables from the landfill.  Plus, save gas and time when you shop online from the comfort of your home.     


HEALTH

Switching to reusable washable cloth menstrual pads can potentially decrease period discomfort, skin irritation, yeast infections, and menstrual flow (for shorter periods).  Most who have made the switch report many or all of these changes in their monthly cycle.


COMFORT & CONVENIENCE

Today’s cloth pads are above and beyond what their basic cloth cousins were way back when.  With high quality, high absorbency, breathable, leak resistant fabrics they’re far more comfortable, functional and appealing.  New Moon Pads all-in-one pads (nothing to stuff, add, or piece together) quickly and easily snap into place.  Using cloth means you always have protection on hand, no more running to the store at the last minute because you’ve run out of disposables.


PEACE OF MIND

No more worrying if you don’t have access to, run out of, or can’t afford the high overall cost of disposables month after month.  Being prepared means peace of mind each and every month.  New Moon Pads are designed to last up to ten years in a regular rotation so once you’ve put your stash together, that’s it!  A decade of worry free periods.  Let’s face it, we’re living in uncertain times whether it’s environmental concerns, extreme weather, or the political landscape, and the last thing you need to worry about is access to menstrual protection.

Moon Light Reusable Pads

Because I work from my home in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, I get to spend my work day looking out at the beautiful west coast mountains, situated only a 10 minute walk away from the shore and a 20 minute walk away from the Comox Marina (established in the 1800s). I feel lucky to live and work in such a beautiful place, overlooked by a snow capped glacier, only moments away from the Pacific Ocean where you can sit and watch the seals and sails vie for position in the wild salmon filled waters.
