A letter of positivity during these changing times. We have your back.
Lovelies, no one has to tell you that these are unprecedented times. Schools are shuttered, many businesses have closed, and public spaces have emptied. Our daily routines have been completely upended and you all feel the ripple effects. But one thing is a constant in our lives, and it is with us every month—our menses.
And because of that our sewing machines will not stop. We will be here for you, stitching cloth reusable pads, and curating fun fabrics that make you enthusiastic about your period.
When everyone is stocking up on certain items, it’s paramount that we get orders completed on schedule. Pads are classified as a medical device, and for that reason, we won’t be closing the doors to our schoolhouse.
We know that things can change swiftly right now. Many of us call headquarters home, so even if there is a shelter in place order, we could keep production running smoothly. In a pinch, we could give the resident ghost a sewing machine!
Reusable cloth pads help you replace at least 120 disposables per pad, and they can save 11,000 disposables PER menstruator! That’s a lot of trips to the store! It’s safe to say that cloth pads keep you and the earth cozy.
Luci could never have predicted a moment like this when she launched PiMPs, but cloth pads were made for this. As you are hunkering down at home to stay safe with your families during this trying time, we are putting pedal to the metal, (literally our sewing foot pedals) to keep up with increased demand.
Here at the schoolhouse, we encourage our employees to work from home when necessary. When it comes to working from home, we’ve long been ahead of the curve.
We trust our team to make their own hours because we know that people will do their best work when they are well-rested and empowered. Luci affectionately calls us “Team Awesome” and despite the economic shakiness, we’ve been able to grow our team, and we are looking forward to the future.
We’ve heard from many of you that you are very grateful to have your reusable cloth pads right now. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Reading your comments motivates us to make more reusable cloth pads and it gives us wings …well, it gives your *pads* wings.
So, stay home and stay safe. Check in with us on social media from time to time. We’d love to hear how your PiMPs are treating you and we promise to share exciting content and giveaways to take your mind off things. We are all in this together.
