Green Resolutions Sponsor Spotlight Post ~Luna Pads~

Here is Lunapads Sponsor Spotlight post! :-)

Lunapads is a cloth pad company! Your probably thinking that is nasty... but truly? Which is more nasty? Throwing out a whole package of disposable pads during your cycle or washing them after your cycle?

"Reusable menstrual products are eco-friendly, money-saving, healthy alternatives to disposable pads and tampons. "

Pad Base: 2 Layer, 100% organic cotton flannel base topped with an absorbent panel made of 2 layers of organic cotton fleece, and 1 layer of ultra-thin nylon to minimize soaking through. Nickel-free, Silver-plated brass single snap fastening. Click here to see how our pads are constructed.
Liner Insert: 2 layers of 100% cotton fleece.
A single Pad will get you through an entire day of your cycle; just change your Liner as needed. Liners will last approximately as long (per use) as a comparably-sized disposable pad or tampon. Unlike most disposable pads, Lunapads do not contain any added chemicals, gels, or super absorbent polymers. Given this, Lunapads users need to be mindful of changing the Liner insert as frequently as their flow dictates in order to prevent soaking through the Pad. Frequent changing of the Liners significantly enhances the comfort and performance of the Pad.
Lunapads will last upwards of 5 years with recommended usage and care. Many of our customers report they still own some Lunapads from 10 years ago!"
From Lunapad's Website on wash and care:

"Lunapads can be washed by hand or machine in any temperature with your regular detergent. Pre-soaking or rinsing in cold water prior to washing is recommended (but not always necessary) particularly if the pads are heavily saturated. Please note that if Lunapads are being soaked, soaking water must be changed daily.
We recommend natural cleaning products such as Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda for regular cleaning, and Buncha Farmers Stain Remover to perk up stained Lunapads. Heavily stained Pads, Liners or Pantyliners may also benefit from occasional machine wash and dry in hot settings or air drying in direct sunlight.
Please avoid the use of chlorine bleach or fabric softeners to clean Lunapads, as this will decrease the performance of the products and is harmful to the environment."

Here is a helpful video on how to use Luna Pads:

My overall opinion: I found Lunapads not only to be quite comfortable and absorbent, but also pretty! :-) Lunapads are made out of fun feminine colors! :-) I think tho that my favorite part about the Lunapads design is that you have your regular pad and you just put an insert over the top of it! You can then use the same pad for the whole day with just changing out the inserts! :-) What a very clever and unique idea!
