Organic Cotton MenstrualPads: For your Health & Our Planet
Hi my name is Alona, I am 48 and I live in the Galilee in northern Israel with my 3 teenage children. We live in Kamun with hill top views and are surrounded by nature.
In 2002, I finished a training course to become a teacher in The Alexander Technique. Our teacher often spoke to us about what used to be and what was today, these philosophical conversations deeply affected my outlook on life.
After moving to the Galilee, a friend told me about reusable menstrual cloth pads and suggested we try sewing them for ourselves and maybe try to sell them, I immediately jumped at the chance as it seemed such a logical, sensible and exciting idea.
Later on, when I started to sell, I realized that most women needed time to adjust to the idea of moving from disposable to reusable pads. It made sense to me because of my studies and also because for years I suffered from recurrent vaginal infections because of the use of antibiotics, and the disposable pads made things worse every time, so the idea of using natural materials made a lot of sense. coutinue reading>>>
