The average woman uses between 1-2 million personal hygiene products over the course of her menstrual life cycle. Thats a huge impact on the environment, especially considering most of this waste ends up in a landfill.
These re-usable pads are an awesome menstrual alternative. They are usually made from recycled cotton, are washable, and reduce landfill waste.
That being said, what kind of ass/genital area does Jenna think her baby is going to have where a square shaped diaper would suffice or be at all comfortable??
Most of human history has been reusable pads, or nothing at all. Disposable products are an invention of the last century.
I don’t use them simply because I haven’t got the time nor the inclination to do that much gross laundry. Otherwise they’d save quite a bit of money – although I think 40,000 a year is waaaay off. 400, maybe.
The Facebook page looks like it’s basically her “fan” page for the store, just like etsy. And even if it’s her regular page, the people she friends have to know it’s what kind of stuff she makes. I hate it when people do that and then bitch that the person’s posting TMI. Why was it lame, other than the idiot not knowing what it was?
People who think it’s gross need to lighten up and grow up.
All you little boys oughta grow up and learn something about how the other half of the human race lives. Menstruation is not “gross”, any more than male sexual function. If you are a heterosexual or bisexual man, you should adopt a more thorough interest in women’s genitalia, which can be quite exciting at times. Else you’re really missing out.
I’m a woman and I’m pretty disgusted by reusable pads. But, then again, I’m also disgusted by reusable diapers. And regular diapers. I can see the value in the menstrual cup, though. I could be persuaded to use that if it works as well as a tampon.
I used cloth diapers for my youngest son, I don’t used cloth pads though. I would like to try the cup because tampons are nasty.
I have no problem with cloth pads but I think “family cloth” (for ass wiping) is fucking disgusting.
doctorchalkwitheringlicktacklefeff, your name is epic.
@ the post, hmm. Not sure what to say, I’ll be using disposable diapers most likely on my children. That is a pretty design, however I don’t see why anyone would want some gussied up cloth diaper that will be soaked in shit and piss several times a day, rewashed, and done all over the next day.
YEAH! Bleeding out our vag is totally NATURAL! So think it’s beautiful damn it. Who wants PICS!?!?!?! Because, you know…natural things aren’t gross EVER. Like shit. It’s BEAUTIFUL and natural. And childbirth. Damn that shit is almost sexy it’s so beautiful.
Also, how heavy of a flow requires 1-2 million feminine products in a life cycle? Which by the way does not encompass the entirety of a woman’s life…Is that one of the 87% of stats that’s buuuuuullshit. Because I promise I haven’t even used 50,000 and I’ve been a bleeder for 8 years now. I think I’m fucking up my carbon footprint. Fuck.
Bananzilla – Maybe think a little before you post things like “the average woman uses between 1-2 million personal hygiene products over the course of her menstrual life cycle”. You may have realized that 1 000 000 products/50 years of menstruating (which is alot)/12 months in a year = over 1500 products per cycle. If you’re using that many there’s something wrong. And while being conscious of your impact on the environment is great, there’s about a million other things you can do besides reuse your pads. If you want to, great – but don’t try to make people feel bad for not feeling comfortable with doing that kind of laundry.
I’m a girl, and I’m all for saving the environment, but I’m not prepared to go as far as using reusable pads. That’s just nasty. Yes, it does cut down on the amount of money you spend on things like that, but I’m usually at school when I’m bleeding, and (obviously) it’s inconvenient for me to be carrying a reusable pad around in my school bag, or keeping it in my locker.
I Googled menstrual cups as well, and that’s even more disgusting then reusable pads. Actually… well, I don’t know.
I didn’t even know that reusable pads existed,that is pretty damn gross. It’s pretty funny she thought that was a diaper though. The best part is her second comment “lol its a diaper lol.” No, no its not.
If you wanna save the environment do something really worthy: don’t drive cars, have fire places, use a fridge, tickle a puppy, etc you get the point. Using recylcable stuff on your hoo-haa means more laundry… and more water. Saves one thing but not another. well done on saving the environment, freaks!
oh god. this reminds me of that one site i’ve come across some time ago. women who use reusable sponges instead of tampons – because they like to feel “close” to who they are and smell the blood and whatnot. had me almost puking half way through the description of the site. and then there was this section to which they uploaded paintings… paintings painted with menstruational blood. i’m still disgusted.
We recently went to an open home (I’m not sure if that’s what they’re called in other countries – when a house is for sale and for half an hour anyone can come and have a look through)…and anyway, there was about 20 of these out on the washing line. You would think you would not have them out for everyone to see. They were plain white btw.
I’m pretty sure in olden times they just walked around naked and let it bleed. Why not, the smell of blood would probably attract dinner….sweet, sweet scavenger meat mmmm. Say Any ladies here on their period interested in making a little cash walking around my property naked?
I loves bitches on they rags. First off, you know dey ain’t pregnant. Secondly, you know dey you ain’t got to use no condom cuz dey ain’t gonna get pregnant. Third thing, you ain’t gotta do no foreplay. I don’t care what the bitch use to clean that shit up. I just use toilet paper or tissue to clean the goo and blood off me then I has to have a shower so I don’t stain my underwear. Easy peasy threesy.
Hey guys, FUN FACT!!!
In the olden days, no they didn’t just let it bleed, they would actually take their skirt and tuck it between their legs. When it would soak through, they would just turn it and proceed on a clean side. These skirts were generally white linen, and therefore when girls had their periods people would say “they have the roses” as the blood prints created rose-like patterns on their skirts.
Here’s another fun fact: did you know that reusable diapers actually help kids get potty- trained sooner than those with disposable diapers- since they get to hobble around in cloth that is soaked with piss and shit, and get their little bums irritated?? Hahah, just a fun little fact lol- that has come from many other moms who have childrens who are my age(twenties), so yes, if you want your little offspring to beg to use the toilet at like 16 months, resort to cloth diapers, peoples LOL!
‘the average dick you’ll take’ is some really classy wording. it really gives off the impression that your paycheck comes from the bunny ranch. my french fries have crawled up and lodged in my throat.
i want to end this on a high note.
