5 Ways to #RecycleYourPeriodPad

 
I don't know anyone that really enjoys that "time" of the month. This Mother's Day make sure to give your mom a special thanks for putting up with you during your grumpy days. I'm sure my mom at times wanted to strangle me and my emotional mood swings. Poise has a new pad that will make those days more enjoyable. You won't feel like you're  wearing a diaper! So, what to do with those unused period pads? I'm going to give you 5 ways to recycle your period pads. It might involve laugher! What's better than a few snorts of giggles?
WHAT IS LBL?
-One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
-Weak pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, childbirth and weight gain are just a few LBL contributors.



WHAT CAUSES LBL?
Just as no two women are alike, there's no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
•Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
•Being overweight
•Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson's disease
•Bladder or urinary tract infections
•Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)



HOW CAN I BEST MANAGE MY LBL?
Women deserve the best options for managing LBL. Whether you leak a little when you laugh, or sometimes have a sudden urge to go, Poise gives you one less thing to worry about any time of day or night. Our pads and liners are specifically designed for LBL, which makes them an easy choice for the 1 in 3 women with light bladder leaks.


Here are my 5 Ways to #RecycleYourPeriodPad!

1. Wear it on your head to embarrass your kids when you pick them up at school. Yes, it's time to pay them back for all of the times they embarrassed you.

2. A great way to recycle your period pads is to use them as knee pads when you are gardening. That way you are more comfortable and will not get grass stains on you.

3. Cut a recycled pad to fit inside a shoe that is making your tootsies sore, or use the pads in a pair of slippers for cushioning.



4. A great way to recycle period pads is to give them to your daughter for a doll bed!

5. Donate the period pads to a local women's shelter or your local church food pantry because they help provide more than food!
