MoonTime Community NPC

MoonTime Community NPC produces beautiful, high-quality reusable sanitary pads.  Our pads are made with 100% cotton fabric, 100% cotton toweling, and a leakproof layer.  They are highly absorbent, lightweight, breathable, and easy to wash. 

Our community pads come in buckets of 3, 4, and 6 pads and can be made up to specific needs.  The 2.5-liter bucket comes with different size pads, soap, and an information pamphlet with the option of a bag with a wet compartment. 

We feel that when the women in communities receive our beautiful, colorful, high-quality pads that they will feel valued in the whole experience of their monthly 'moon time'.

Half the population bleeds for half their lives and there are many women who are unable to afford the basic need of sanitary products.

There are numerous pad drives out there and many companies and sponsors are donating disposable pads to help the girls in the communities and to keep them in school.  They are doing amazing work with great intentions but it is not sustainable and is only a short-term solution as the girls continue to need more pads month after month.  Where do they all go? 

On average a woman will use 14 500 disposable pads and tampons in her lifetime throwing away 150-200kgs of menstrual product waste.  It takes 500-800 years for a disposable pad to decompose and there is no longer space on our precious earth to hold all the pads being thrown away month after month. 

MoonTime Community offers a long-term sustainable solution by affording funders and donors the opportunity to provide reusable sanitary pads that last for many years.

Our MoonTime team does an education workshop on delivery as well as a follow-up session answering any questions and providing information.  Part of the program will be educating on the environment and what community members can do to help as well as the ins and outs of menstruation and personal wellbeing.  The MoonTime team will work with the teachers and community leaders and support and assist as needed.

We got a small donation and are in the process of preparing buckets for The Seven Passes Initiative which is situated in Touwsranten, Hoekwil.  There will be maternity pads for expecting moms and buckets with different size pads according to the needs of the receiver.
