Reusable or Disposable?
Another option to consider is whether you want your pads to be disposable (as in, you toss the used pads in the trash after each use) or reusable (as in, you need to clean and re-use them after each use). While it might seem gross to recycle a pad, there are certainly perks. Brands like GladRags and Luna Pads sell pads that they claim are good for your body and good for the environment by minimizing waste, and eliminating chemicals used to create disposable pads. Plus it is cheaper because instead of buying thousands of pads over your lifetime, you only buy a few that you wash and reuse.
