#RecycleYourPeriodPad Poise Campaign (Linqia)

This post was sponsored by Linqia for a Poise Campaign. This post also contains Linqia Affiliate Links.

For the #RecycleYourPeriodPad Campaign, I had trouble deciding what to make. Aunt flo also showed up this week and Kalen just happened to rip one of my pads and tried to destroy it.

I made a bracelet with a bow and a breast cancer awareness pin.

I took one of my Always Infinity Pads. Drew some orange drops to represent  jewelry. I also painted the background purple. Next, I pinned a breast cancer awareness pin in the middle. Finally, I took the green backing, ripped it in two, and hot glued both pieces to the back to the pad, and made a bow with both pieces.

The purpose for the campaign:

Many people, including me, uses period pads for light bladder leakage, instead of a product designed for light bladder leakage, such as Poise. My mother is notorious for this too. She had a hysterectomy years ago. She no longer has a cycle but she still buys period pads for light bladder leakage.

According to the media kit, 1: 3 women experience light bladder leakage (LBL), but using a LBL pad offers a dryness, not offered by a period pad. LBL is for LBL pads, not period pads.

Poise has designed a new thin-shape pad, which is 40% thinner than the original brand pads. The new thin shape pads are designed for light bladder leakage. The thin-shape pads are designed to move with your body. The pads also feature SAM (super absorbent material) and a thin flex design, which is  3x drier than a period pad.

The campaign wants women to turn a few of their period pads into a project such as a bracelet or a floor cleaner, or a headband to help them to remember period pads are not for LBL.
