New York Times Article Focuses on Tween Pads

The New York times had a piece last week about Kotex’s efforts to make a new line of pads more tween-friendly. Girls have started menstruating earlier and earlier in their life, and it’s great that products are being created to make the products they need tailored to them. The body of a 9-year-old is quite different than the body of a 30-year-old! The packaging of the products is bright and friendly and reminds me of one of my favorite Trapper Keepers from middle school.

Don’t forget you can buy some of these products and drop them off at one of our donation drop-off spots.
