Why use mama cloth pads? & GIVEAWAY!


I know what you're thinking "ewww cloth pads?" Yes, cloth pads. It actually makes a lot more sense than you think. Let me explain.

First of all, Health Benefits: Tampons put you at risk for TSS, infertility, endometriosis, and the fibers left behind from tampons can cause odor and inflammation and give rise to tumorous growths. Pads are made with chemicals, fragrances, and are also often made with a dry-weave plastic cover which can cause rashes, irritation, sensitivity, and allergic reactions.

Environmental: The average woman will have 500 periods in her lifetime. Thats almost 17,000 pads or tampons. Cloth pads do not contribute to landfill as they are reusable and do not come in or contain plastic packaging.

Cost: In the long run it is much less expensive to buy or make cloth menstrual pads, it costs more up front but it's worth it.

Cloth pads are also known to reduce cramping, odor, they're super comfortable and they're also cute! Another plus is that they are customizable when it comes to shape, size, flow, pattern, and color!

So go ahead! Give them a try! Go like mine and my sisters new facebook page called Two Hip-Peas in a Pod ;) We make cloth pads, cloth wipes/wash cloths, cloth diapers, wet bags, and more to come!

GIVEAWAY RULES: Go "like" our facebook page and comment saying that you liked our page with your name and email address. For an additional entry go share our facebook page with your friends and then comment again saying you shared our page! You will be entered to win a cloth pad of our choice. Winner will be chosen next Monday 3/30/11. Good luck!
