Kick the clutter, #RecycleYourPeriodPad

A few things can make a family’s life more chaotic. Putting aside all the carpools, sports and school activities, clutter can make a family’s life seem more overwhelming. The piles of mail, the full laundry baskets and dishes in the sink can make even a calm day seem less productive. When it is time to clear out the clutter what do you do with the items that can’t be given to charity?  It's time to repurpose the clutter.

Some items are easy to re-purpose. Those old mason jars can become herb planters. The chipped plates can become an outdoor mosaic. But what about items that might just end up in the trash can? Can those items be re-purposed?  In some cases they can.

Many women have a little problem called Light Bladder Leakage (LBL). It’s not a hot topic of conversation, but it is part of life. A big belly laugh or a long run can cause an issue. Even with all the yoga, kegel exercises and everything else, women can have an LBL problem.  It happens, so we have to deal with it.

Thinking about LBL, some products work better than others. For example, a period pad is for periods not LBL. Designed to move with your body, new Poise Thin-Shape pads feature Super Absorbent Material (SAM) and a Thin-Flex design for extraordinary protection that’s still 3x drier than period pads to help you take care of leaks with confidence.

Poise is making FREE samples available so that everyone can experience the difference. Get yours today.

Now with the new Poise Thin-Shape pads, what do you do with all those period pads that you may not be using?  Poise challenged me to #RecycleYourPeriodPad. When I thought about the challenge, I wondered what I could do. As a mother of two boys, a kids craft might bring too many questions that I’m not prepared to answer. Looking around the house, it struck me – flowers.

Whether it’s Mother’s Day, a birthday or your husband wants to make you feel better (not because he screwed up), flowers can come into the home. I don’t do the best with arranging flowers. From getting the varied heights to keeping them fresh for a long duration, I can have difficulty. Giving it some thought, a #RecycleYourPeriodPad can help build height in the vase (this trick works best in a non-clear glass vase). I can cut the pad into pieces to create varied levels and create a more varied floral design. Since the pad is absorbent, I don’t have to worry that there isn’t enough moisture for the flowers. Just remember when you change the water in your vase, change the pads too.
Now instead of throwing away all those pads (which is a waste), I’ve created a new purpose.

Do you have an idea on how to #RecycleYourPeriodPad?
