Welcome to Green Betty! Where sustainability and fun collide! This is the home of Moonpads, Reusable Menstrual Pads.

{ Philosophy }

My goal is to create reusable menstrual pads that are easy to use, affordable, and, perhaps most importantly, beautiful and fun. Sustainability isn't just better for the planet, in my world, it's a lot more fun! and i want to enable women to share this experience by providing menstrual pads that are beautiful. My favorite words are "I can't wait for my period! Then I can use Moonpads!" This is why I hand dye all of the organic cotton bodies of Moonpads- oatmeal white is a lovely color, but I wanted more variety.

{ Absorbencies }

Pantyliner and Mini Pantyliner- super light days, or every day wear

Day Pad- medium flow

Extra Absorbent- heavy days

Over Night Pad- medium heavy days, overnight

Over Night Extra/ Postpartum Pads- Heavy flow, overnight

{ Why Use Reusables? }

Moonpads reusable menstrual pads are a great way to go green and have a more comfortable period. They're better for the planet, they're better for your health, and they're WAY more comfortable than disposables! They're easy to use and easy to wash. And they'll also save you money!

{ How to... }

Simply place Moonpad in your underwear and fasten flaps together underneath with the Cowgirl Snap. When you're finished using it, rinse it out and hang to dry until the next time you do wash. They're machine washable and dryer friendly! Detailed washing instructions included with order.

{ Material Sources }

All organic cotton used has been grown and milled in the United States by union workers. This is incredibly local for fabric of any kind- most is grown and or milled in turkey, india or china. Having fabric that's from the US saves a huge amount of fuel. Also, working conditions for most fabric is usually unknown. It's REALLY exciting to be able to provide such an eco-friendly and worker friendly product. With the environment in mind, unbleached fabrics are used whenever possible!


{ Love & Questions }
All Moonpads are made with love. My hope and dream is to provide women with a beautiful product they can look forward to using! I also aim to help break down some of the taboos around menstruation- feel free to send me a convo with any question you might have about Moonpads or menstruation, and I'll be happy to help if I can.

{ Custom Orders / Alchemy }

I can usually do a custom order if it doesn't involve me taking pictures and posting them- i.e. if we can talk about it through a convo, we can usually work it out. I can not do detailed custom orders involving photos at this time due to my current workload. i'm so sorry about this- i just know myself too well- and doing detailed custom orders has been a difficult experience in the past. allow at least a month for the custom order process. a $1 fee per Moonpad is added to custom orders under $80. but if you are interested in a custom order, don't hesitate to contact me and we'll see what we can do.

{ Suggestions for Moonpads }

all that being said about how difficult it is for me to do really detailed custom ordes, i would LOVE LOVE LOVE to hear about what would make Moonpads better for you though! Please, please tell me- i created the over night pads, the pantyliners and the mini pantyliners just because customers have requested them!

{ Guarantee }

All Moonpads are guaranteed for five years! In the unlikely event that a problem does arise, your Moonpad will be replaced free of charge.
