I don't know if you heard or not, but apparently today is Earth Day. Thats right, Dia de la Tierra. I noticed a lot of my fellow bloggers posting tips and advice for "going green" and how to save good 'ol momma earth.
Well in my quest to find some awesome tidbit to share, I came across something odd and disturbing.
Reusable cloth menstrual pads.
I don't even like to wear normal pads, and at least those you can rip out and throw away when their **ahem** full. But the thought of removing my (excuse me again) **ahem** full pad, and then either hand washing it (gag me with a spoon!!) or casually throwing it in the wash with my clothes...um...no thanks!
The thought of watching blood flow down the drain only bring ones image to mind
Not only is the thought of a reusable pad freaking disgusting, but people are choosing to make them out of the most ridiculous fabrics. There are many things that I don't ever want in my crotchal region. That list includes, but is not limited to the following:
fire breathing dragons and unicorns
dancing skeletons and skiing ladies
oriental ladies and cartoon characters
Seriously. How many pads are you going through that it is making that big of an impact on the earth???
oh. That many?? Dang girl!
So.....I love ya Momma Earth, but there ain't no way in hell I'm putting a nasty, stained, pre-used pad in my panties. It's just not happening. Now excuse me while I go plant a tree. all photos via google images
