Hoping to change minds

I decided to invest in reusable menstrual products for a few reasons. I tend to have heavy, long lasting and sporadically-scheduled periods. These products are a life saver. I had leakage pretty much every time I slept wearing regular disposable pads, even when I bought the largest ones I could find.

I'm also very sensitive to what I put on or in my body, as well as the earth. So along with being vegetarian, recycling, and making my own household cleaners, reusable pads seem the next obvious choice. The fact that I'll also save money overall because I bought reusables? Awesome!

I have only told a few people about these so far, because I'm still sensitive to what people think of me, and some people have had negative reactions. I'm hoping to change their minds!
