Why are New Moon Pads only 
available through
When you buy from the New Moon Pads website you’re buying directly from the designer/manufacturer.  
This way the middle man is bypassed and overhead is kept low so savings 
can be passed along directly to the customer.  Which also means I’m able to offer free shipping to all my customers worldwide.  And who better to answer any questions than the actual designer?


I just wanted let you know how VERY grateful I am for you and your company.  New Moon Pads have really changed my life.  My periods are not unbearable anymore.  At first I was skeptical that the Ultra Pads wouldn't prevent leaks.  I'm here to tell you they really prevent leaks! They are so soft and comfortable.  I truly love your pads and look forward to being a loyal customer for the rest of my "period life".  I am telling all of my family and friends about New Moon Pads.  I believe in you and your products.  Please don't ever stop making them.  May God bless you and your company.  Much continued success!  Now I have to find a second job so I can buy pads in every print and size you have.

Container Vegetable Gardening
Growing vegetables in containers is a real space saver and far easier than you may think.  Not only do you get fresh vegetables straight to the table but you can harvest them just steps away from your kitchen.  Use anything from soda bottles to terra cotta pots.  You’re only limited by your imagination.

One of the most important milestones of the history of mankind is the development of writing. It is the written language which helps give us evidence of ancient cultures, and subjects such as menstruation.  Many myths accord menstrual blood a life-giving nature:  Some South American Indians, for instance, thought that all mankind was created out of "moon blood."  The Mesopotamian mother goddess Ninhursag was said to make men out of loam and her "blood of life." She taught women to make loam dolls for use in a conception spell by painting them with their menstrual blood.  In the Bible's "Genesis" the name Adam is derived from "adamah," which can be translated as "bloody loam."  Many associate the moon with menstruation.
