I (Crystal) am so very thankful for the wonderful Facebook fans Tree Hugger has!  Not only do you have the sweetest comments for me when you receive your orders but you also love to share with your friends and have helped educate women that there are healthier and more comfortable options available.  


To celebrate reaching 3000 fans Tree Hugger is giving away two $30 gift certificates as well as two $20 gift certificates.  I then thought "Why not go BIG?" so there was a post that stated for every "like" received on that status I would up the prize total by $.25.  Well, guess what....it received 483 "likes!  I will round it up as I am now closing that status and will be adding another $125 in gift certificates to the prizes.  


So here are the prizes:


the first 2 names drawn will receive one $30 Tree Hugger gift certificate
the next 7 names drawn will receive one $20 Tree Hugger gift certificate
the next name drawn will win a $15 gift certificate 
and the last name drawn will win a $10 gift certificate


To Enter (I'm going to make you work for this contest so it's a two part-er):
1. Please post a comment to this blog entry answering this question:
What would you say to someone who was hesitant to try cloth pads?
AND
2. Please go to www.treehuggerclothpads.com and link me to your favorite pad set currently listed.


Make sure to include your email address in your comment as I will contact all winners via email.  You must do both parts to enter and only one entry per person.  I do read through each and every entry and do not count the invalid ones to make it fair for all.


The names will be drawn Monday June 18th at 9am central.

  7. What would you say to someone who was hesitant to try cloth pads?

    I look at things this way..... certain things were done way back when in the day for a reason. not just becasue thats what they had but because it was better

    this has always been my favorite thing to say, because its so true.

  9. I would tell them that they have nothing to lose but chemicals and waste! Its surprising how much a difference you will see when you switch from plastic and artificial to minky and bamboo! The difference is well worth the investment in the high quality that Tree Hugger Provides!! Make the switch TODAY!!

  13. 1.) Cloth pads are the most wonderful thing you can do for yourself AND the environment! They are so much more comfortable than disposables and actually let you "breathe" down there! They are also surprisingly easy to clean--especially Minky fabric. Think of all the money you will save over the lifetime of a cloth pad, totally worth it. The thought of everyone's 'sposies in a landfill is one of my personal nightmares--think of all that unnecessary waste! Once you go cloth you never go back!

    2.) I have two Tree Hugger favorites right now.
    One is the rainbow postpartum set: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_47/Colorful-Minky-NightPostpartum-Pad-Set.htm
    and I also have my eye on the black and pink panty liner set with wetbag: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_163/Cherry-Blossom-Pantyliner-Set-with-wetbag.htm

    I'll use my email that's connected to this: harvestkarma@gmail.com

    I will tell anyone hesitant to try cloth about how much more comfortable it is and how I have more confidence in its absorbency than in paper. That is if they cannot be swayed by the ecological reasons. :)

    I really like this set best:

  15. I just received my first mama cloth last week, so I have yet to test them out. However, I would say to just them try a couple out to see what you think. They are super soft and are pretty colors. You can't say that about the disposables.

    Ah, stupid iPad won't let me copy and paste the link to my favorite, so I'll do my best to describe it. It's the Pastel Flowers Light Flow set.

  17. I've thought about this so many times. This is what I tell people who go "eww..that is gross".

    First off what do you do when you have a leak and your undies get dirty? You take them off, and toss them in the sink and wash them out right? You don't even think twice about it. You don't go "ewww.. and throw them away do you?" Thats how cloth pads are. You use them and rinse them out.
    second they're SO MUCH more comfortable! and third no waste and no wasting of money.

  37. I would tell them that since most periods are not really that fun, wearing cloth makes it a much more pleasurable experience. Soft and cushiony, you save cash AND your period may be lighter. I mentioned before too, in a public washroom when changing your cloth pad....no crinkly sound! Now the world doesn't have to know you are having your period :P

  41. I tell them how nice cloth feels against our delicate areas, how their are no harsh chemicals. How my cycles are lighter and shorter and I have nearly no cramps compared to when I used disposables. My 9 year old has asked me to start a stash for her. Because of us talking about how bad my cramps use to be I would be curled up with a heating pad on my stomach and taking medication for the pain.

  48. 1.) I would tell her that thanks to cloth pads, my last post-partum was significantly shorter and lighter, like cut in half. I would also mention that thanks to both the diva cup and cloth pads, I no longer dread my period, it's shorter, lighter, and virtually no cramping.

    2. Since I use a Diva also, I tend toward the pantiliner and light day sets. So I really like the rainbow pantiliner set with wetbag as seen here: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_164/Rainbow-Pantyliner-Set-with-wetbag.htm

  49. i would tell them about the warm feelings I have when I think about how I'm no longer sending all kinds of plastic and chemicals to the landfills. How my carbon footprint just got a lot lighter. How much more comfortable they are than disposables. How my flow has gotten lighter in only a few months. How much better snaps are than adhesives. And how much money I save every month. So much to tell and I'm sure that's not all!

I would also tell them that you get to pick out the cutest prints and softest fabrics making your period less dreaded and dare I say a little more enjoyable!

  61. I think the best selling feature of mama cloth is that there are no chemicals and without the chemicals most people end up with both shorter and lighter periods. I went from 4-5 days to 2-3 days and as any woman knows that is a big difference and is awesome.

There are some pretty convincing arguments here but I'd be doing it to save money & to help the environment (same reasons why we decided to cloth diaper)

  67. I've been considering mama cloth since starting to cloth diaper my first born. After all, we love cloth diapers and how much harder could it possibly be?

    I think the selling perks for me are largely cost, comfort and I'm hoping they'll be kinder to my sensitive skin than disposable pads.

    My favorite set is: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_168/Carnival-Owls-Heavy-Flow-Pad-Set.htm

    The owls are SO cute. I love the paisley as well. I can see how these could be just as addicting as CD. I love feeling pretty down there and fun prints would totally make AF more enjoyable!

  70. I've been 'converting' my sisters and mum! I tell and show them how pretty the pads are, how they are comfortable and they don't crumple and stick everywhere.. Oh ye and they don't smell like commercial pads! They are so easy to look after and make your period so much prettier :)

    My favourite pad set is the Brown Flowers Light pad set {http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_167/Brown-Flowers-Light-Flow-Pad-Set.htm} Wow, they are all so beautiful!

  71. Depending on the audience I would tell them, just like others have mentioned "Just do it" They are so comfy.. and once someone tries them out they will never return to cloth. If they already CD their children, I tell them they deserve cloth too- and for those who think it is too much trouble, I tell them that my daughter has been using cloth since she began her period two years ago... and she cares for them too!!! And on that note, I had her select which set she would like and she chose http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_126/Indian-Summer-Pantyliner-Set.htm She isn't really into heavy flow or PP pads at this stage in her life ;-)

  72. I would let other women know that mama cloth is so much more comfortable and healthier for your body. It is easy to take care of and a good investment. It makes an otherwise unpleasant time more comfortable. Mama cloth is also super cute! My daughter wears cloth diapers and someday I will buy her some cloth pads!

  80. I would tell people that yes, it is a change, but a GOOD ONE! Disposable pads can not only be expensive every time you run out (and need to make that trip to the drug store), but they are also very harmful to the environment! They tend to bunch up and not stick very well, whereas, reusable cloth pads have a wonderful snap to keep them on and in place! People may be hesitant for the fact that you must clean them, but washing is a breeze! Not to mention, the many cute designs make that time of the month just a little nicer ;) I will never go back and continue to tell people all the time that they must switch--you won't know until you try, so see the benefits for yourself! :)

    Its SO hard to choose which design is my favourite, but I think I am going to go with: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_167/Brown-Flowers-Light-Flow-Pad-Set.htm

    I read somewhere that using cloth pads isn't that much different than using cloth diapers for your little ones. And that's what got me to change, the "ah ha" moment. So I would tell someone who's curious about cloth pads the same thing. I would also tell them all the great other benefits as well. But I knew all of the other benefits and still didn't like the idea of them until I read the comparison to cloth diapers. If my (future) children can use cloth, why can't I?

    And my favorite set is the Bright Polka Dot Sampler Set

  93. I just wrote out my entry and it vanished (sorry if its my phone playing up and it then appears more than once - I promise I'm not trying to cheat)

    I would show them the statistics connected to the waste and damage to the environment caused by disposable sanitary wear, I would then work out with them how much money they could save over the course of their 'menstruating years' and then I'd tell them that while both of these reasons are definitely good enough in theory that I'm convinced practically if they gave them a try the extra comfort would win them over.

    If this had them at all curious I'd then buy them a few to try out (this is what a friend did for me and having the risk element of maybe wasting my limited funds taken away really kicked started me)

  112. What would you say to someone who was hesitant to try cloth pads?

    I would explain all the horrifyingly nasty chemicals found in disposable tampons and pads. THERE'S A WAY TO SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT AND OUR BODIES!! Not only are they good for our bodies, but they're so amazingly soft and comfortable. Not to mention without all those gross chemicals messing up our body chemistry our bodies will adjust to where they naturally should be and often times your period will be shorter. Who wouldn't love that? They also save you money, are super cute, and are so easy to take care of. They're just all around magical. :)

I know the next question would be what about convienence my answer would be just throw them in the washer with your laundry and they can be reused how awesome is that! Imagine the money you'll save? I'm telling everyone who has young daughters, we do so much to take care of our babies and keep them away from toxins and unhealthy things even doing the cloth diaper thing then we give them yucky pads!!!! So that's who I'm spreading the word to.

    To reluctant users...
    Cloth is easy to care for, saves a ton of money, and is SO comfortable. You have nothing to lose - buy a couple even, try them out, if they're not your thing then you at least have them for backup when you've run out of your disposables (but of course, this is a trick, cuz they'll never go back to disposables!)

  118. #1--I would encourage them just to try a couple panty liners on their own or as back-up to tampons/cups. Give that much a try--see how they feel, fit & wash up. If they like that, get more. If not, little investment "wasted".

  122. Don't hesitate anymore. They are an expensive initially, but for once I actually don't dread that time of the month anymore. Cloth pads get rid of the odour, discomfort, and irritation of disposables. And they are just overall better for the environment and better for you. My first cloth pad set purchase was a set of pantyliners. I really have enjoyed them and so I think my favourite set that you currently have listed would have to be the rainbow pantyliners set.

  130. I think the first thing I usually say to someone who is hesitant, is how easy they are to care for. People think you need some elaborate soaking, washing and rinsing routine for them, but it simply isn't true! Once people know how easy the washing part is, I think they instantly become more open to the idea. And of COURSE the money savings and comfort. Sooooo much more comfortable!!!!

    And it is SO hard to choose a favorite, but I love this one. http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_126/Indian-Summer-Pantyliner-Set.htm

Also that it's Not gross at all to use them just wash them in the washer with no downy. I wuld aslo tell them how it makes your flow lighter over time and im sure everyone would be happy about that! I am only 19 but i wish i had found out about your pads years ago, and would have saved so much money as well. btw no more dogs ripping up used pads anymore and having my dad yell at me to clean it up!

    thanks for the give away abbie :)

    I think I would just tell them to jump right in and try them. I have never tried cloth pads even though I have wanted to for awhile. I have been hesitant because for some reason it seems like it might be kind of gross, but I know that it won't be since anyone who has tried them, loves them. I just need to jump in. I cloth diaper so why wouldn't I use cloth pads. What a better way to try them than through a contest!!! Hope I win some to try!

  134. I tell my friends how since switching to cloth, my periods are lighter and cramping almost non existent. And how once you feel soft cloth, you will never want to use gross disposable ones again. Just try 1 pad and you'll be hooked!

  138. I have converted a friend or two! All I have to do is show them how soft and pretty your pads are and most of them are convinced. When I start talking about all the gross stuff that is in factory made pads and all the lovely natural goodness that is in yours then they really want to go for it!

  145. I was hesitant to try cloth when my first was a baby and ended up with a Diva Cup instead. I LOVED my diva cup and never used anything else, until I had my second baby. It was painful to put anything in there, even almost 9 months later it is painful. So I gave cloth a shot and I am in love with it this time! It is SO easy to use and since we cloth diaper, I just toss them in the wash with the diaper laundry. Even if you don't cloth diaper, just toss them in with your towels or other laundry you wash on hot.

    I have found cloth to be less humid/sticky, especially in our already humid Alabama weather. It is bad enough to feel wet on the skin from sweat, but to feel wet down there is no fun either. I have also noticed with mine, and you have to get a good brand and the right size! that when I have a sudden rush of flow, the cloth tackle it way better.

    I never thought I'd love cloth pads, since I never loved pads, but now I am thinking the Diva Cup may just stay in retirement ;)

    Choosing a set was hard! You have SO much cute stuff! I like browns and flowers though, so I chose this :)

  146. I tell people who aren't sure about using them, how comfortable they are, but even more than that they are SUPER easy to clean. I think people get wrapped up in the 'inconvenience' of it and the thought of 'dirty' work, but It's not gross at all, and people are always suprised to hear that the minky is stain resistant. They look new again wash after wash :)

  148. I'd tell them they're soft, oh-so-pretty, easy to care for and just SO MUCH MORE comfortable than the paper, glue, laden with chemicals, sweaty, rustly stuff you can buy @ the supermarket. No sweat, no smells ! As a bonus, the initial cost will pay for itself in the long run, and by shedding this initial amount of money, you are helping dedicated WHAMs to help their families.

  153. What would I say to someone who was hesitant to try? First of all I would just smile and chuckle when their first reaction was "Ew!" :) Can't say I would'nt of said the same thing before I decided to dive in myself. Then I would tell them to just try one or two at first, maybe pick one because its their favorite color or they love the print. Along with the important bit that washing is as simple as throwing in the machine. More than likely after they got them home and realized how rediculously soft they are they'll love them. That and the glorious fact that your period doesn't have to be such a drag without any uncomfortable smelly plastics.

  155. 1.) To be honest I'm the hesitant one! But if I where to tell some one about switching to cloth pads, I would tell them exactly what I'm trying to tell myself....why not it just makes sense, you think it's kinda gross but in reality don't you think what your using now is worse. I mean think about it we are wearing plastic uncomfortable pads then throwing them out where they sit for years in the landfills, now that is gross.( I'm on a tight budget right now and that's why I haven't switched yet but hopefully soon)

    2.) So many nice sets it's hard to choose, so this is ONE of my favorites: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_138/Brown-Damask-Heavy-Pad-Set.htm

  157. I'd tell them that cloth feels a lot better next to your skin than plastic, and you don't have to worry about sensitivities to chemicals and scents typically added to disposable pads. And as a cloth diapering momma, I can reassure them that cleaning cloth products is pretty easy and it's a lot less gross than dealing with the waste created from disposable items.

  160. I would say that I can understand the hesitation, but that once I tried them I would never go back. They are soft and comfy and don't smell! The beautiful colors and designs just make is that much more awesome :) Knowing that I am doing something good for the environment AND doing something nice for myself all at the same time. I love using cloth pads every day, but especially at that time of the month, they make me feel like I am taking extra good care of myself, and I wouldn't trade that for the world. (Plus, I definitely do NOT miss the smelly trash that disposables created!) They are easy to clean, and the minky doesn't stain - just throw it in the wash!

  164. I would tell my friends that they are so much more breathable than the plastic pads, and they have none of the chemicals the other pads do.

    It is a toss up on which set I love... here is one pick: http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_185/Black-Heavy-Flow-Pad-Set.htm

    I love them for the basic coloring, but I love a lot of the others too.

  165. I would start by telling them how many chemicals are really in the pads. Also that those chemicals are the main reason for exteneded periods and the horrible cramping. the chemicals are used to "pull" the blood out of you. And that cause you to dry up and have the cramps. If you get rid of the chemicals, you can see possibly shorter periods, if not shorter lighter and a lot less cramping, if any at all

  166. I have not tried them yet although I have placed my order and am really looking forward to (which sounds so weird to say).

    I have to use them for health reasons, but I would say to others is that the main reasons for using them are:
    1. Health - they are better for your body, you are not exposing your most delicate and vulnerable area to chemicals and harsh plastics each month.
    2. Cost - they might be expensive in the short run but in the long run you will save thousands of dollars. For those who are 'heavy' bleeders the initial investment isn't even that much. For me, the amount I have been spending on pads each month more than pays for a good sample set.
    3. The change from the bin to the laundry basket isn't really that massive - instead of having a stinky bin each month you will have a closed wet bag and / or soaking bucket. And then you just wash and dry like normal. That's no big deal. And let's face it we all 'leak' or have 'overspill' at some point, so at least some 'scrubbing' of blood is going on, so now it's just adding a bit more and from what I've read probably saving your undies at the same time.
    4. Environment - you are not throwing away countless materials that aren't biodegradable each month to pile up in trash heaps.

    My current favourite pad set is the blue light- regular flow set at http://www.treehuggerclothpads.com/i_181/Turquoise-Cows-Light-Flow-Pad-Set.htm
    This is for two reasons the first is that they look so cute and I love the cow pattern! The second is that I want to colour-code my pads the same as the disposable ones so that the transition is easier for me to make - mentally - so I can just look at quickly see which is which. Green for liners, Blue for light - regular, Pink - super and Purple - night-time.

  170. To a friend who is hesitant, I would tell them about the financial, environmental, and bodily benefits of cloth pads. Plus, as usually the hesitation has to do with the washing of them, I would tell them about how I keep a sealable container under our bathroom sink that I put my used pads in with water & baking soda, and every day or 2nd day I put those through the cold water wash of my washing machine & dryer. Yes, it is more "care" and "hands-on" then disposable pads, but the benefits by far out-weigh the "grossness" factor. (Before using cloth pads, I used to have chronic yeast infections, and I haven't had 1 since I started using them 11 years ago!) :-D
