Conventional disposable pads and tampons contain irritating chemicals and additives that interfere with how our body works naturally. And you don't want these near you, especially at one of the most sensitive areas of your body! The skin of your labia is very thin and sensitive, and it absorbs very well. Think of all the chemicals entering your body! With hannahpads, you are safe from these unwanted substances. The top & absorption layers are unbleached and non-dyed. And it's organic cotton too! Why do we not use regular cotton? It's because 5 of the top 9 pesticides used to grow regular cotton are known cancer-causing chemicals. With organic cotton, you're also safe from these pesticides too. It's truly one of the most natural way to bleed through.
Did you know one person uses up to 16,000, SIXTEEN THOUSAND pads and tampons over her lifetime? And it's not only the pads that we need to consider here. There's also all the packaging materials (also mainly plastic!) used to manufacture and ship out all the those disposable pads and tampons. Now I say that is a lot of waste dumped to landfill!
Hannahpads last you years before you throw them away to the compost bin. Cotton biodegrades, so that's where the pads go! (But, make sure to check with your municipality to confirm where cotton products are thrown away ;-) ) With hannahpads, you decrease your environmental footprint and feel good about it every month!
With a good Hannahpad set in your hands, you're good to go for the next several years. No more last minute trips to the store to get pads.
Lets say it costs about $0.20 per pad or tampon on average (that's including all absorbency). Remember the 16,000 pads for lifetime as mentioned above? Multiply the two and you get $3200! $3200 is what one spends over her lifetime on trash. Investing in a set of cloth pads may seem expensive upfront, but it will save to tons in the future.
So now that you know why it's better to use reusable cloth pads, you are now wondering why hannahpad over many others? We've summed it up for you!All of hannahpad cloth pads have organic cotton layer on the inside where it touches your skin. No contact with residue of harmful chemicals or pesticides. The organic cotton is certified by Control Union.
