GladRags fabric scraps become works of art! Linda Hendrickson takes the trimmings from our cloth pads that are made here in Portland, and uses a technique called ply-split braiding to make beautiful weavings! Thanks for putting these scraps to fun use, Linda! #gladragspads #zerowaste #madeinusa #madeinpdx #plysplitbraiding

Ladies, meet your new best friend, XO Flo Mini from @gladragspads ! I could spend so long telling about how much I love this cup! It is so comfortable. Its like nothing is there!! I highly recommend this someone who is wanting to make the switch to a cup, but might be little intimidated if youve never used one before, because lets be real... it can be daunting. Im willing to bet you wont regret it, but youll never know unless you try it! If youre wondering whats so different about the mini compared to the regular XO Flo see the next picture and if you have ANY questions about it, just ask! do, however, recommend that you really look into the differences in sizes and do your own research to discover which option is best for you! I have tried both and love both, but I think I love the mini the most! As some of you know, earlier this year I became an ambassador for Gladrags and I am so excited that I get to continue my ambassadorship with them! So, keep your eyes peeled for a lot of different product reviews and possibly some giveaways! And same as before, use promo code ASHSTIEB5 to get $5 off any one pad, pantyliner, or XO Flo!

"When I was fourteen years old, my mother gifted me a set of GladRags pads. This inspired me to consider the sustainability of menstrual products and their impact on the health of our bodies and the planet. It is so glaringly apparent how important it is that menstruators are introduced to reusables early on while habits are still forming. What better time to do this than their first period?"

Were you prepared for your first period? A lot of kids arent! So talking about it early and often is key. The period talk doesnt have to be one giant conversation, but can be smaller conversations here and there. With repeated conversation comes increasing comfort about a subject that has been taboo for far too long.

I was do excited to open his box and see his great black/floral night pad! I can wear most reusable pads for the majority of my period but I have this 2-3 day span that is very heavy. I often turn to a postpartum pad and heavy flow cup (my favorites on the site) but finding a pad made for heavy days can be hard. I cant wait to try this! It has a great length and I can tell from the thickness that it will be great. What @gladragspads says about the product GladRags' Night Pads are longer and wider to provide more coverage while you sleep. In addition to extra coverage, the night holder contains a layer of ultra-absorbent terry cloth. Customize your absorbency by adding inserts to the pocket on the holder. The Night Pad can also be used as a postpartum pad or for heavy flow during the day. . . . You can use promo code: THEGREENV5 at checkout, to get $5 off any one cloth pad/pantyliner or XO Flo cup!

Ever wonder about a zero waste period? Well, heres a money saving lineup for that time of the month. _____ I have personally found success with @thedivacup made from soft silicone and @gladragspads made from 100% organic cotton. I find them to be much more comfortable than disposable tampons and pads. Plus, the cup can be worn for up to 10-12 hours! _____ The investment to switch from disposables to reusables costs money up front but over time the savings quickly add up. The average American woman can use up to 16,000 disposable tampons and pads in her lifetime. That means shell spend upwards of $3000 in goods that get thrown out. _____ Why not consider reusable menstrual products if you havent already? Let me know if you have any questions!

Meet the GladRags Ambassadors! First up, Leigh Ann, @3_moons_studio, who just ordered a new set of Organic Cloth Pads to refresh her stash thats over 10 years old! I LOVE GladRags reusable cloth pads, because they are good for my body, my wallet, and the Earth. No toxic chemicals in or near my body and no trash going to landfill every month. Ive recently (just last cycle) added the XO Flo menstrual cup to my stash and look forward to having that as an option as hiking and kayaking season approach.

Disposable tampons, pads, and liners generate hundreds of thousands of tons of waste every year, most of which ends up in landfill. I started using Softcup but I still had to dispose of it later. So I decided to purchase #gladragspads my purchase came with a cute carry bag, menstrual cup, and cotton panty liners. Pretty excited ! @gladragspads

EARTH WEEK #GIVEAWAY, who wants a package from @gladragspads? All you have to do to enter: be brave enough to try something new &&& follow me, follow @gladragspads, comment below with your favorite color! Every year, 12 billion pads + 7 million tampons hit the landfill (where they will remain for centuries). Ladies, thats INSANE. Not to mention UNCOMFORTABLE (because all disposable feminine products are uncomfortable). Pads (dont even get me started on tampons) suck. Theyre itchy, they make noises when you move, they smell of chemicals, theyre filled with chemicals, & they leak if bent. I mean seriously, how on Mother Earth did these things actually become a thing?! The realest talk youll ever get out of me: I got an IUD when I was very young in an effort to deal with abnormal menstrual cramping. For 10 years I didnt have a period. It was great, like really great. Then it was time for a change. For the first time in my entire life (literally, I was so young prior to my Mom bought them for me) I had to buy feminine products. Their shitty-ness blew me away. They hurt, I mean actually hurt. This wasnt that long ago for me my heart aches for you young girls out there just thinking about those first few months of learning to deal. Fast forward: I dont have to deal with anything anymore. Thanks to @gladragspads! They satisfy every need I have for a product comfortable... logical even, saves money, saves the planet. The winner will be picked at random on Earth Day, this Sunday!

We recently had a customer tell us a sweet story about her 6 year old daughter. She was still a few years from getting her first period, but one night she complained about being uncomfortable down there (she said) and had noticed her moms comfy-looking cloth underwear band-aids (GladRags pantyliners!). So the mom gave her daughter a cloth pantyliner to see if that might help her daughter be more comfortable. And it did! She was thrilled and wants some of her own just because they were so soft! Her mom shared that the discomfort went away and her daughter is looking forward to getting her own stash of GladRags one day!

Sorry boys, this ones for the ladies. Periods. Its a part of life. We all have to deal with them. Lately Ive been learning about reducing waste in the bathroom. Ive been really thinking about feminine hygiene, and what I could do about it. Ive been reading about the harsh chemicals they put in disposable pads (things like wood pulp, adhesives, artificial fragrances, chemical gels, etc..things you dont want around your lady parts) and the pad companies arent required to list those ingredients so imagine what other bad things they put in there that can harm your body. The average woman uses 12,000 to 16,000 disposable pads in their lifetime. Thats a lot of waste. So if I wanted to better for my body, and reduce my waste my options were a period cup, and cloth pads. Ive never really been a tampon wearer, they just kind of weird me out so I didnt think Id enjoy the period cup either. So I found a company called @gladragspads and after reading a little bit more about cloth pads I thought Id give it a try. I am a little nervous since this is my first time trying this but this will be saving me money and doing better for my body. So basically glad rags are hand made with 100% cotton. They were shipped to me in a 100% recycled poly mailer. And its 100% reusable because you open the bag on a perforated line, but on the inside there is an adhesive to stick it closed again! The pads were wrapped in cellulose which is a compostable eco-friendly material made from plants. I bought The cloth pad sampler kit plus. The plus is for a little bit heavier periods. Mine isnt that heavy, but like I said Im a little nervous so I wanted the more absorbent option. It came with 3 day time pads, 3 pantiliners, and one night Pad. You can choose what colors you like, but I just put the surprise me option. It also comes with a cute carry bag for your purse, I chose the cats, so that way you can carry clean/used ones in your purse in a clean discreet way. So basically you put them on top of your underwear like a disposable pad but these snap in place with a little button. The day and night pads come with inserts that slip in underneath to become more absorbent. Wish me luck!

Well its only the first day of my cycle, and my first day using my new #menstrualcup from @gladragspads, but I can tell you Ive bought my last tampon. For the last decade or so Ive used cloth pads and an occasional tampon (organic, unbleached cotton with no applicator, but still wrapped in plastic) for river trips or longer hikes, but this item is a game changer.
