  1. I am trying hard to convert my sister as well as my teenage daughter. My daughter is about 50% converted but she likes tampons (I don't understand why) so it's hard to change her completely. My sister feels the same way I do about throw away pads. I have told her all the benefits and she is willing to try so I would donate this one to her to try if I win it:)

  2. I haven't converted anyone but I switched to cloth when the whole moldy tampon fiasco happened a month or so ago.

  3. I haven't converted anyone. I'm just starting to make the switch myself. I learned about cloth through the Great Cloth Diaper Change store participants and browsing their selections.

  4. I have converted many people to cloth. I first discovered cloth pads via Jaine Raine in Glastonbury almost twenty years ago when tracking down a menstrual sponge. She had white pads from Ganmil at Bridgewater and I duly saved my pennies and got some from her and later more from the Suma catalogue. Then Many Moons from The Carrying Kind ...and once I got the internet it blossomed even more and I ended up selling Pleasure Puss from Nadia at Menstruation.com.au ...

  5. I heard about cloth pads after someone in a facbook group mentioned the DivaCup. Once I googled that, a Whole new world opened up! lol I have been trying to convert all the women in my family!

  6. Technically, I converted my SIL to cloth. We both spent time making our first stash, but we both had babies last winter and I my period came back several months before hers did. :)

  8. I've converted many friends to cloth diapers but I am a newbie to mama cloth so no conversions yet! I first heard about cloth pads through cloth diaper forums and chats. I do have one friend that recently started using Tree Hugger pads and loves them!! I can't wait to try them out and start using them too!!

  9. I am fairly new to cloth, just experienced my first period with cloth pads last week. I know I can never go back to disposables now! I found out about cloth, specifically Tree Hugger cloth pads through diaper swappers, and I am so glad that I did!

  10. I just discovered cloth this year, but I think I just converted two friends, maybe four. I wish I had made the discovery years ago, but I'm happy that it is becoming such a cute and comfortable option now.

  11. With our baby now I have been using cloth diapers for all of the reasons we know are good, health, environment, cost-savings & not having to run to bloody Walmart in a blizzard only to forget my coupons :) Then I realized, helllooo what about me and being at the mercy of disposables. So I gave it a go and so far (first time using AS I TYPE! SORRY TMI!!)they are awesome. Wish I knew about them 20 years ago!! Thanks to the internet and facebook which is how I compared products and the amount of 'Likes' and reading comments (did the same with cloth diapers) I took a chance. So happy I did.

  15. I am new to cloth pads. I had an allergic reaction to disposable pads after childbirth and searching online for an alternative. I first heard about cloth pads on a baby website forum and then read all the fabulous reviews about Treehuggers, decided to give it a try. I have told one friend about cloth pads but have yet to convert!

  16. I actually kept hearing about mama cloth on Diaperswappers and honestly was grossed out, But After trying unpaper towels, I thought to myself what a difference my carbon footprint would make if i would just try it once. The first time i tried them i was hooked. No more cramps, no more itchy scratchy feeling, no more crinkly sound using a public restroom. Now the problem is my stash, I need more :D

  17. I am in the process of converting a friend that uses pantyliners everyday. I mailed her a reusable liner for her to try. I hope she likes it!

  18. I haven't converted any of my other friends to cloth......not for lack of trying though. I first heard about reusable pads while browsing the internet. Now I've learned about reusable sandwich bags, diapers, un-paper towels, etc.

  22. After I started to cloth diaper my son I learned about mama cloth. Cloth diapering was going so well I figured switching to mama cloth would be great as well. So I went to my local cloth diaper shop and started buying cloth pads. I am still in the process of switching completly to cloth pads :) I would love to win this pad!

  24. I have converted no one since I am a new convert. I learned about mama cloth from all the cloth diapering sites I frequented. It seemed like a logical progression.

  25. No converts yet. But I did tell my friend who uses cloth pads and who is expecting about you for post partum supplies.

  26. Im working on a couple friends, but have convinced others in some groups Im in... I heard about it online & since I cloth diaper, it seemed the obvious choice...

  27. I haven't sold anyone on cloth pads but a few ladies in my birth club are considering it. I discovered cloth pads on Diaperswappers. TreeHugger was my first purchased than I got pregnant.

  29. I learned about cloth pads shortly after researching cloth diapers when I was pregnant with my son. I love cloth for my son so I figured hey why not for me too! I have converted a few people to cloth pads (and diapers) as well :)

  30. I was actually converted by a friend and have worked on converting a few people myself. Most of them aren't using cloth 100% yet but they have at least agreed to try it!

  31. I am a recent convert myself since finding the Cloth Pads Livejournal community. I showed my new pads to my sister and she's thinking of trying them out too (she uses a mooncup now). I'm really looking forward to my Tree Hugger order... I have a feeling they will be among my favorites :)

  33. I switch to cloth pads in November 2011. I have not had the chance to convert anybody yet. I'm still trying out different cloth pads to see which ones are the best for me.

  34. I haven't converted anyone yet, but I've told people, including my midwife that I use a Diva and cloth as back-up and she thought it was kinda neat.

    I did convert my SIL to cloth diapers though. Baby steps.

  35. I haven't converted any friends so far, but I tell everyone. I have six sisters, so I am going to change one of them to a cloth user, I just know it! I am very close to convincing one of my nieces.....it's funny though, because I was surprised once I started talking about using cloth, how a couple of my friends shared they use Diva cups....so I bought one, but haven't tried it yet, since I love my cloth so much.

  36. I've converted a few to cloth diapers...but none to cloth pads yet! I just started using them myself about a month ago. :)

  38. My sister and I both started using cloth pads at the same time a few years ago. I had found about them from using cloth diapers and she agreed to take the plunge with me.

  39. I don't know if I've converted anyone yet, but I've definitely talked to at least a handful of my friends about cloth! I heard about cloth from my mom and sis. I am quite new to cloth, having only used it for about 2 months.

  41. I haven't converted anyone yet, but a few friends of mine converted me. They are so much more comfortable to wear and not irritating like the disposable ones. :)

  42. Have not converted anyone :( I looked into mama cloth after cloth diapering my two kids. Luckily I have a supportive husband to the idea which helps!

  43. I discovered cloth when researching Soap Nuts on YouTube:) So far, I have converted a friend of mine who was reacting to disposables and was willing to give cloth a try. Youtube videos really helped give a face to cloth users and helped me, personally, make the switch.

  44. I've converted one friend to cloth diapers but so far haven't been able to convince them to try mama cloth, still plucking away at them though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I first read about them in a magazine article and was super interested in trying them. Since I started using them, I have converted my best friend and also one of my sisters.... i am finding it rather difficult to convert some others though!

  47. A friend kind of help convert me. I saw she cloth diapered and went to her when I had questions. I have converted at least one of my friends!

  48. I first started researching online and the youtube reviews just sold me on your product completely but reading about the benefits for my body and for our planet that sold me on cloth. I'm telling family members for themselves and their daughters. I'll. Defenately be using them for my daughter when the time comes

    I wanted to see if there were other options besides disposable pads. I decided to look on Hyena Cart (as I had already been looking there for cloth diapers) and found Tree Hugger! I love your products and will never go back to disposable pads!
