Elevyn – Mothers for Fair Trade

Elevyn is a fabulous little site where you can buy hand made pretties directly from the people who made them – it’s a gateway for underprivileged or disadvantaged peoples to get their products to you directly with no middleman – meaning more $ to support their causes.

If you’re looking for a gift or something unique, Elevyn is the place to go!

And until 30th of May 2010, Elevyn is holding a Mothers for Fair Trade event.

Send a picture with your mom or child to info@elevyn.com   and include a message for ll mothers out there (please include name, occupation and location)

Your messages and photos will be posted to the Elevyn website and you’ll also stand to win prizes – the prize from Tiny Tapir will be a RM200 voucher for every 20 entries (chosen by Elevyn) – so get cracking and spread the word about Elevyn!

Mooncup Testimonial

From another happy Tiny Tapir Mooncup user :

Mooncup-with-Box-on-black-A cup-med

“I’ve been using pads ever since I started having my period. However, I was always looking for an alternative. The pads made me itch, and sometimes if I walked around a lot, I’d get rashes, and this would be very painful and uncomfortable for me. Also, everytime I sat on a chair or lay down on a couch or bed I would worry about staining the furniture and not be very comfortable as I would try to maintain a single position that wouldn’t risk me leaking on the furniture.

I wanted to try tampons, but I read a lot about infections caused by the tampons, so I was afraid.

Then one day, my sister-in-law told me about menstrual cups. I read about them and did some research, and against my fears I decided to try.

At first I was afraid of putting it on as I couldn’t imagine putting anything that big into my privates, but I tried anyway.

Lo and behold, it was the best thing that had ever happened to me! I could walk around comfortably without feeling self conscious. I could sit and lie down and roll around as I please without worrying about leaving bloodstains on any furniture.

I’ve never felt so free!

Menstrual cups are definitely one of the best things I’ve discovered in my life. It is something that I would most definitely recommend to any women I know.”

Review on Cloth pads

Paris over at Mywomenstuff came over to Tiny Tapir Baby in Ampang Park about 2 weeks ago to get her crash course in Menstrual Cloth Pads (and crash course it was because we were both short on time!).

She was brave enough to try a couple, and she’s written a pretty thorough review on her blog here

(this was not a paid or sponsored review)

Do hop on over to have a read, and see whether you can be persuaded to try it too 🙂

A great way to try cloth pads – at a price of RM8 for the pantyliner and RM13 for the medium pad, the prices can’t be beat.
