We had someone post on our Facebook Wall asking to hear from Lunapads users about how our partners feel about Lunapads. I felt compelled to reply because my hubby is for sure a LunaGuy!
With a gaggle of girls in the house, we had a huge negative impact on the landfill & a lot of bathroom garbage. So many used pads! I’m not sure many enjoy dealing with used disposable pads. Mind you, our dogs love them! My husband is an environmentalist – the kind of guy who recycles the wrappers on straws. He is also a Poly Sci major, animal lover and would go out and buy pads for us in an emergency! (he is a sweetie)
When our family discovered Lunapads, he was on board before my teenagers were, because:
• No more bathroom garbage!
• We’ll save money!
• He never has to go buy pads for us!
It was a no-brainer for him. In our house, he is the one who does our laundry. His opinion on washing Lunapads: ”It is no big deal. I toss them in with the rest of the clothes, they are not gross (the girls pre-rinse them), much nicer than the disposable garbage for sure, and kinda cute.” He also thinks that the Lunapanties Hipsters are sexy.
I am pretty sure he is enjoying the calmed period times too. I noticed once when one of my daughters was using disposables (someone else got her some, arghh!) – she was nasty! I can’t say for certain, but I suspect not ingesting toxins monthly could eliminate or reduce PMS symptoms. It is something I noticed in my own life once I was off the chemical laden pads. I felt better.
I read a study somewhere about the blood in umbilical cords, and that this blood (which is supposed to be pure) is already filled with toxins. This means mom does not filter out everything as previously thought. We do not start with a clean slate, and it will take generations of clean living to rid the bloodlines of the past mistakes.

So why are we waiting? Why are we adding to what our bodies have to deal with? Why is it that people are still drawn to the seeming convenience of disposable products? This is the Lunapads battle!
The good news is the typical Lunapads’ customer demographic is growing and expanding – younger and older & all over the map! If you want to help and have local stores you think are perfect for Lunapads’ products, go to our refer a retailer page (we’ll send you a little thank you gift and are having a draw at some point for those who refer a store we successfully convert to the Luna Revolution). Anyone can do a referral, even if they are not Lunapads users themselves!
Thanks to all of you for your support and engaging questions!
