5 Benefits Of Cloth Pads, One Fact Might Surprise You.
To many, what I’m about to discuss is a known fact, in that case I’m probably preaching to the choir, as they say but for those that aren’t aware it’s time we shed light on this topic. So bear with me and read on for your own sake and the sake of our planet :)
Our generation has been inundated with disposable pads, tampons filling up our landfills and large multinationals that are profiteering from this multibillion dollar pollution of our landfills.
So let us quickly delve into the benefits of cloth pads:
1 Cloth pad Rm 20.00 (1pc)
First day 5pcs - Rm 100.00 (assuming the heaviest of flow)
The second day another 5pcs - Rm 100.00 (assuming the heaviest of flow)
Clean first day pads and use it for the third day and so on.
The moola ($) you have to drop in the first cycle is Rm200.00.
Pads can last up to 5 years.
Brand X Rm12.00 (10pcs)
First Day 3pcs/day, so one packet will last 3 days
New packet of 10 pcs on the fourth (4th) day
For one period cycle Rm24.00 x 12 Months (one year) = Rm288.00
Rm 288.00 x 60 Months (5 years) = Rm17,280.00
Yup, you saw the maths, RM17,280.00. What!! 17K, boleh pergi melawat kat New Zealand berapa kali dah?Ah...baru kamu tau, inilah orang panggil sikit-sikit menjadi bukit dan kat landfill pun menjadi bukit !!
2) No further irritation and lack of confidence
You know why ??? No chemical. Tampons and pad are laced with artificial colors, polyester, adhesives, polyethylene (PET), polypropylene and propylene glycol (PEG), contaminants linked to hormone disruption, cancer, birth defects, dryness and infertility.
There is no comparison obviously on the comfort part. You’ll feel pampered with materials such as fleece, soft organic cotton and bamboo cotton fleece.
4) Design and Material materials
The quality of the fabric used is of prime importance. From experience reusable pads with bamboo fleece fabrics are the best, because of the absorption is far superior. Also bamboo fleece is an anti-microbial fabric. Tiny Tapir uses premium fabrics from the USA. Many manufacturers use the cheapest fabrics from China they can get their hands on, with fancy designs to get people’s attention and make the quickest buck.
We at Tiny Tapir, like to keep the integrity of our products, it minimalist, simple and tasteful, also we focus more on the quality of the fabric rather than making it fancy.
5) Save Our Planet
Every year, billions of disposable diapers flood into the garbage disposal site and require hundreds of years to be described. So, as well all know, we need to work together to preserve the environment, and we can start simply by switching to a more eco-friendly cloth diaper.
In essence, when you think about it, we don’t wear disposable plastic and paper underwear so why should we do the same for our sanitary pads.
