We have a worldwide dilemma. Too many sanitary napkins are making mountains and tampons clogging pipes. Too many toxic shock episodes, and it's just really expensive to bleed every month.
In the developed countries mountains of landfills are being created from non recyclable waste. Billions of tons of sanitary pads and period products.
In the underdeveloped countries, there isn't enough affordable access to sanitary pads. So our sisters need guaranteed access to protection. Women menstruate worldwide, always have.
And there is an answer for everyone with a bit of self love, self care and ingenuity. Everything old is new again!!!
I introduce to you THE REUSABLE CLOTH SANITARY PAD!!! Yay, clap, yippie, bravo!!! It's not a rag, it's a new wardrobe for your vagina.
Below I created a collection of YouTube videos so you can get acquainted, make a new friend for "your friend", save some money, avoid toxins, avoid waste, and control your menstrual destiny (destination).
This collection of videos has something for everyone. All of us have different taste so pick your vibe, and go with the flow!
"Warning", the cleaning videos do show soiled pads. But this is a real life issue with demonstrated real solutions. Ladies there's no need for shame. It's education. Literally!
