GladRags Reusable Menstruation Products
Conventional disposable products can contain plastics, artificial fragrances, adhesives, and chemical gels--things you don't want next to one of the most sensitive parts of your body! Choosing GladRags all-cotton pads means comfortable periods free from irritating materials and avoiding unnecessary exposure to the synthetic ingredients in disposable pads and tampons.
Once you purchase a full set of GladRags, you'll have reliable menstrual protection for years to come. GladRags are made to last for five years, but many of our customers report that their pads have lasted much longer--some are 20+ years old and still going strong!
Remember the 12,000 to 16,000 disposable pads, pantyliners, and tampons that each menstruating person might use in their lifetime? That's a whole lot of waste! Plus, think of the manufacturing, shipping, and packaging impact over the years. GladRags last for years, helping you keep your environmental footprint small and saving you from monthly trips to the store.
In a disposable pad's life cycle, its heaviest environmental impact is during the manufacturing process. This is when the raw materials (including fossil fuels and oil to produce plastic) are used. In comparison, GladRags cloth pads--and their packaging--are plastic-free.
