6 Reasons To Shift To Organic Sanitary Pads
As women, we have this truly wonderful gift – the divine ability of producing life. However, a not-so-exciting plus one is the alarm system it comes with - reminding us about our fertility every month. Ladies, we all learn to face this fact at a young age, there’s no wiggling out of that monthly period and are mentally prepared to deal with it for the next 40 years from the first time it comes knocking on our doors. So why compromise on comfort while we’re bleeding from our vaginas?
Today, we have so many options available in the market – both, internal and external. Internal options include a wide range of tampons and menstrual cups, that vary in size depending on the amount of fluid they can collect. External options are sanitary napkins or pads, which are generally the more popular option (especially in India). With a vast and confusing selection of shapes and sizes of pads, it’s only understandable to take your own sweet time, based on trial and error of what suits you best. But we’ll help you with the easy decision – should you go for traditional or organic pads? Organic is definitely the way to go if you haven’t made that switch already!
Need convincing on why you should shift to organic pads? Check out the several benefits of using organic pads and let us help you make the morally correct decision.
Eco-friendly: One of the more obvious reasons to shift to the organic alternative is to save the environment. Every non-organic sanitary pad can take anywhere between 500-600 years to decompose. Isn’t that haunting? Knowing that one single product (which is undoubtedly a necessity) can leave behind such a huge environmental footprint. Women, open your eyes and go with the obvious choice!
Say Goodbye To Skin Irritation: While the friction of normal pads with your vagina causes skin irritation, these organic babies are so soft because they are free of synthetic materials, plastic and chemicals. Treat your lady right!
Keeping it Clean: Organic pads are made of a cellulose core that is super absorbent, keeping your lady friend nice and dry. Your vagina will thank you for the lack of rashes and irritation. Also, organic pads are completely sterile so don’t worry about those bacterial and fungal infections. Of course, if you don’t change your pad frequently and maintain hygiene, nothing can save you.
Freedom From Plastic: Yes, until now, we’ve not had too many options to ditch the plastic when it came to our menses. However, with growing awareness of environmental degradation and concern for saving what’s left of our planet; we now have so many new options in the plastic-free organic pad department. Everyone knows how harmful plastic is for the environment. Also, it’s no treat to wear a layer of synthetic materials mixed with plastic between our soft cotton underwear and genitals (and that too for almost an entire week!). So why is there a need to think twice?
No Dioxins: Dioxins are released when the polymer absorbent in traditional pads, (which is made of cotton in organic pads) comes in contact with the air, or is burned; and these fumes cause air pollution.
- Save The Animals: Organic pads cannot include chemicals and synthetics. They also need to be made from completely organic cotton (from the grass-root level); which means that the cotton is grown in a completely organic environment, devoid of any insecticides and pesticides. This affects the lives of so many animals and birds that depend on the field for their meals. So indirectly, you’re saving animals, girls!
