Yes, you can “green” your vagina by using cloth pads.
Late last week I shared my opinions on how to have a greener period (menstrual cycle) by using cloth pads, menstrual cups, or other more natural options. One of my favorite cloth pad companies is Pink Lemonade.
The owner of Pink Lemonade is a work-at-home mom (Sue), who has 4 children. The Etsy Pink Lemonade shop has been open since 2007 and is incredibly popular and well known for their high quality fabrics, fun prints, and superior products. Sue herself is a self-proclaimed “fabric snob” and only uses the very best fabrics such as; hand dyed bamboo velour, luxurious soft minky, and designer cotton wovens.
Pink Lemonade cloth menstrual pads are available in a wide variety of sizes to fit all women and flow; including postpartum pads. Sue has been kind enough to giveaway one $25 credit to her store to a lucky Eco Chic reader. To enter follow the steps in the Rafflecopter application.
I am postpartum but done bleeding. My main obstacle to not getting cloth pads is the upfront cost for them and also because I’m afraid of losing them each month and having to refind them.
Would love to try but I’m too nervous to spend the money

I use both cloth pads and cups but prefer the cups.

Stephanie Reed says
I don’t yet because I still haven’t gotten my first pp AF but I plan to use cloth!!
Rebecca E says
Yes I use a lunette cup and cloth pads I use to have major cramps since switching its been 99% better. Sometimes I even forget I am on my period!
I use cloth pads. I really want to try a cup though!
Laura R says
I use cloth pads for light days & back up. Have not converted to a cup, but thinking about it. My favorite cloth pads are from Pink Lemonade Shop!
I only have pads hat I’ve made myself and have used the cup! So great, I would love to win!
I use a cup, mostly, or I did before I was pregnant.
domestic diva says
I currently use a cup, but I’d like to try cloth pads.
Amanda Alvarado says
I mainly use a menstrual cup but also use cloth pads!
Shannon A says
I’ve heard great things about the pink lemonade pads. Can’t wait to try them!
Have the diva cup and would love to try cloth!! :)) thank you for the opportunity!!
I’ve used cloth pads for almost a year now, but mostly made my own. I would love to try hers as I’ve read so much about them!
Nicole Lewis says
I have a cup but don’t get to use it very often, I would love to try cloth pads though
I use a diva cup & love it. I’m 34 weeks pregnant, so I’m looking for postpartum pads now.
This would be awesome to win.
Danielle Niederhauser says
I’ve been dying to try cloth pads! I love cloth diapers for my baby and want to make the switch but they’re so expensive and with so many brands it is hard to make the decision!
I have not tried them yet, but I want to try them. I guess I just haven’t bought them yet. I still have a stash of other products to use before I buy something new.
I just started wearing a cup yesterday – it’s been years and I’m tired of throwing away so much trash every month. But it’s going to take some getting used to. I would love some cloth liners to go with it.
I bought cloth pads to try when my daughter was a few months old, but I haven’t gotten my period back yet so they are still waiting to be used…
Jessica K says
I just bought some cloth pads (some were even from Pink Lemonade) but have not had the chance to use them yet. I’m excited to try them out.
Michelle L says
I just started using cloth pads and I think they are awesome! I need more!
denise H says
I used to use cloth long ago and just got out of the habit. I tried the cup and got a nasty UTI and never looked back.
Sarah Gilbert says
I haven’t used either but is something that I have thought about more and more since having our baby and cloth diapering.
Judith Martinez says
I haven’t used either one yet. I don’t like pads (I want to win this for my teenagers) and coming up with enough money for a cup all at once is difficult. I’m breastfeeding and not having cycles so I’m trying to save the money I would be spending on tampons to get a cup when my cycles return.
Amanda Selenke says
I use mama cloth, and really like them….but would like to try the cups
I don’t currently use anything because I have the Mirena (no period for the past 4 years) but I’d love to try cloth pads or cups!
Jamie Johnson says
Gradually making the switch to cloth pads. I’ve been using tampons for years and years so it is an adjustment.
Elizabeth Volker says
I do use mama cloth! Love how much nicer they are than disposables!
Olivia L says
I’ve used both, but I prefer a cup with cloth liners as a back up.
Chelsea Preston says
I have a few reusable products just haven’t used them yet because Aunt Flow hasn’t returned yet since my daughter was born im 10 months pp
reluctant to make the investment…
Dana K says
I have and use both. Cup and liners during the day and pads at night.
Lily Ivey says
I didn’t even know about mama cloth until I started using cloth diapers on the little one. I haven’t tried them yet. I’m still researching.
Katie Fender says
I’ve tried using the Lunette cup, but I’m just not having any luck. I really want to get some cloth pads to try out!
I have a couple cloth that I love, but havent been able to expand the collection/try something new…. all the budget goes to the baby cloth stash!
Mary Ann says
I use a menstrual cup and love it!

I have the Diva cup and the Fleurcup and recently received my first few orders of cloth pads (so I haven’t officially used them yet). Cups are great but I haven’t been able to wear them without back-up unless it’s a really light day. I do like the cups because they help to alleviate the intensity of heavier days.
Heather M says
I use both. Cloth on my light days and then a cup on my regular days with cloth as a backup. I LOVE my cup and will never use a tampon again.

I use cups and would love to use pads, but haven’t made the financial investment yet.
Stacy Mojica says
I do! and I actually use Pink Lemonade Shop! And lunette cup when I go to the gym or am going to be out of the house all day and can’t remember to bring pads to change. I absolutely love Sue’s work. I am in love with my obv pads and pantyliners, and bought a raw silk set too because they are anti-microbial.
I recently made the switch to the Divacup and Lunapads. It took a few cycles to get used to it, and now it’s just amazing and I’m never going back to disposable pads and tampons. It’s changed my life.
I have been looking into having a “greener” period. I’m excited to try some new options!!!
Aimee P. says
I want to use cloth pads but the up front cost is preventing me at this time
Beth R says
I am planning on using postpartum pads once baby gets here
Charlotte R says
I’m nervous about washing them.
I currently use disposable and have only just recently learned about cloth…. I’m very interested in trying, just hesitant to buy as I don’t know which ones to choose to try for me which is why I’m here. I would love to win to give them a try. I’d really like to try, just need somewhere to start. Thank you.
I recently started cloth diapering, so using cloth pads seems like a logical next step on my road to being greener (and more frugal!). I’m hesitant to buy in case I don’t get a brand I like, so I hope I win this giveaway and get to try out cloth pads without the risk! (I also just ordered a menstrual cup and am very excited to be done with tampons!)
