Switching from disposables?
>> Questions & Answers
Why would I want to switch from disposables?
This is such a common question that we have devoted a whole page to our response.
We find women have four main reasons for wanting to make the switch from disposable feminine hygiene products: concern for their own health, concern for the well-being of our environment, a desire to save money and a desire to reconnect with their innate body wisdom.
Caring for your body
Using Wemoon pads you care for your body by letting your skin breathe and allowing your blood to flow naturally. Natural cloth pads protect your most delicate parts unlike irritating paper-based products with synthetic plastic backings. Many Wemoon users report improvements in their menstrual cycle, with lighter blood flow and shorter periods... read more
Since using Wemoon the duration of my period went from 5-6 days to about 2 days! Then, when I didn't use them my period took about 4 days.

Caring for the environment
Then there are the environmental considerations. Just think about the waste—all the pads and tampons you use each month and the packaging (wrappers, applicators, boxes) all ends up in a landfill. A disposable product is used once; a Wemoon pad may be used for years! ... read more
I tried Wemoon for environmental reasons, but I didn't expect them to be so much more comfortable than throwaways—thank you! And the wings are perfect; Wemoon pads are definitely the best pads I've ever tried.

Wemoon pads also save you money. Even if you start by purchasing enough to get you through half your cycle, wash them twice and supplement with your current product you will start saving money right away. Reusable pads are actually cheaper than disposables over time. This is good news for women with heavy flows who really benefit, as they are not wasting money on disposables but simply recycling their pads throughout their cycle... see the figures
Celebrating your feminine nature
And then there are women who realise that their attitude to menstruation—this natural and life affirming part of being a woman—has been affected by a cultural conditioning in our age. For these women the switch to cloth is part of a healing journey of exploration, acceptance and understanding of the unique qualities of their feminine nature.
Your beautiful pads not only help me save the environment—they are also comfortable and convenient, but most importantly, they changed my attitude of hating my period, and made me realise that the blood was not a dirty thing to be ashamed of.....in fact it was something to celebrate.
