For Your Body
Urinary Incontinence – the accidental leakage of urine is a much more common problem than most people realize.
As many as 1 in 3 adults – more than 80 percent of them are women who have difficulty controlling their bladder according to the Urology Care Foundation. Causes include pregnancy and childbirth, diabetes and obesity, and changes that accompany aging. Those in their 40s and 50s or even younger, not just nursing-home residents, are faced with these problems.
SYMPTOMS OF URINARY INCONTINENCE
The symptoms range from occasionally mild urine leakage when you cough, laugh or lift a heavy object to uncontrollable wetting.

It is also recommended that you switch to organic washable pads because it’s a better choice for your body, the environment, and your budget.

For The Environment
Disposable pads are expensive, particularly to the environment.
The average woman will use over 16,000 disposable pads, tampons and panty liners during her lifetime. From an environmental perspective, it’s estimated that approximately 20 billion pads and tampons are discarded each year in North America landfills. 20 billion annually! Needless to say, that is a lot of waste in our landfills! An even worse thing is that the plastic in disposable pads and tampons will require 200 years to 800 years to biodegrade. Sad but true: each item of plastic in disposable pads and tampons still exist ‘til today. The process of manufacturing these disposables also pollutes our environment: air, water and animal habitats.
Say “YES” to making the switch to reusable and being the change. You are in control; you can make a difference for your body and for the world.
For Your Savings
The price of Urinary Incontinence (UI) disposable pads are much higher than other disposable products such as menstrual pads, panty liners or even baby diapers.
Moreover, while women wear menstrual pads for a couple of days in a month, women or men who have UI might have to wear incontinence pads 24/7.
It might not seem to be too pricy in the moment, but you will be shocked at the accumulated cost.
For example, if you use one thousand incontinence disposable pads per year, you will have to pay more than $1000.
