GladRags: Saving Mother Earth, One Pad at a Time
April 27th, 2012
Earth Day has come and gone, but the message left behind it still lingers. We can turn lights off for an hour, stop using electricity-powered gadgets for a day, but the point of the whole thing is to live more eco-conscious lives.
Like I said, I’m all for the environment, but I’m not so sure about these GladRags. As a number of people have pointed out, they resemble what women used to use for their periods before the invention or popularity of disposable pads.
They’re green in the sense that they can be washed and re-used after each use. I’m not very fond of the idea of having to actually wash these myself, but they’re not that bad, considering what all those disposable pads and tampons are doing to the environment.
The GladRags come with wings and snaps into place, thanks to the tiny buttons on the wings. They range in price from $11.99 to $17.99(USD) and are available in a variety of patterns and designs.
What do you think?
