When You Buy The Wrong Product: #RecycleYourPeriodPad


I admit there have been times when I have gone to the store and I was in such a hurry that I got the WRONG product or sent my hubby to the store to get me some personal items and bam, WRONG personal items. A pad is a pad though, right?


And so while I admit I used a couple of those pads to get me through until I can get back to the store, the rest have been stored in my bathroom closet. Instead of tossing out those pads, I’ve decided to recycle them. No sense in wasting decent pads, right?

Check out what my little one and I did all in good fun.


So now that we’ve figured out how to recycle our period pads, let me tell you a little bit about LBL.

There are period pads and then there are pads amazing enough to handle 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.

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)

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.

  • I think it is great that these formerly taboo subjects are discussed out in the open now. I like how discreet these products are.

  • It’s funny because I never knew bladder leakage was such an issue for ladies. I’m glad that its being talked about openly so there is awareness. I’ve always liked poise products.

  • Everything’s got a use, right? I think it’s very resourceful that you’re thinking of ways to recycle them.

  • I was always the type to throw things away – this is a good reminder to how we can all be resourceful and recycle things instead.

  • I don’t have any old pads. I have a few pads from the hospital and ended up giving some away to a friend. Having c-sections has it’s benefits. :/
