22 Years of GladRags!

July marked another year of reusable fun for GladRags, and that called for a celebration with as many people who have contributed to our continued success as possible! We set up a pamper picnic at beautiful Laurelhurst Park in Southeast Portland. In addition to treating ourselves, we also left no room for doubt that our…Read more

Meet our Models

You know what’s hard to photograph? People using our products! Any shots of our products in action are really just photos of people doing their thing. So we have to get a little creative, which inspired our most recent photoshoot of GladRags in their many natural habitats: the bathroom at home, the laundromat, in a purse at work,…Read more

She Flies With Her Own Wings – #BtheChange

The Oregon state motto is she flies with her own wings. Lovely, isn’t it? I learned it during the ceremony on January 2nd, in which GladRags became an inaugural Benefit Company in Oregon (that’s me with Secretary of State Kate Brown). Oregon follows in the footsteps of the 19 other states that have enacted laws recognizing Benefit…Read more

The Inevitable Conversation

One of my favorite parts about my internship here has been talking to people about GladRags. Mostly because I loved watching people’s reactions when they hear what GladRags is. When my friends and family ask me what I’m doing this summer, I got a little too excited to say “eco-friendly menstrual products,” “cloth pads,” “reusable…Read more

Our Attitudes Shape Our Actions

Half the population experiences it, so why is menstruation still such a taboo? At GladRags, we are committed to changing this attitude about our bodies, one reusable cloth pad and menstrual cup at a time. The feminist movement has been influential in changing ideas about women and bodies. It’s time that ideas and conversations about…Read more
