double eco-friendly cloth padscomments (2) April 1st, 2009 in gallery
I had been curious about the menstrual cloth pads forever! I was about to start using them, but I found out I was pregnant... So, I missed the initial opportunity to use them. Now, my body is getting back to the normal cycle and I made myself some more of menstrual cloth pads. the polka dots fabric is a leftover from making baby blankets for my daughter, and there are a few layers of cotton, which comes from my doughters cloth diaper that she grew out of, and a layer of waterproof fabric that is still breathable. They are so comfortable and easy to use. NO MORE maxipads and tampons!!!
They are eco-firendly in both ways - they are made out of recycled materials, and they will not produce any garbage that goes to the landfills!!
I'd love to own a YUDU! I am a printmaker, but I don't have a studio space, nor have money to set up my own printmaking studio. All the equipments are so expensive!! For that reason, I have not been able to print anything new since I moved from oregon where I had access to a printmaking studio... :( I also make clothes, so it will be a nice accent if I could start printing on the garments I make. I'd love to be able to print at home whenever I can find a little bit of 'me-time' in between taking care of my three month old :)
