Women on average will use well over 10,000 disposable sanitary products in their lifetime. All of which end up in landfill or wreaking havoc in the sea, taking several hundreds of years to decompose. They are therefore not quite as ‘disposable’ as we may initially think.
Disposable sanitary items are also usually full of nasty chemicals, including bleach (to whiten them) and even plastic, so they aren’t even great for our lady bits either. For example, there is a risk of toxic shock syndrome when using tampons.
And as if that’s not bad enough, the majority of the most common brands found on the high street of disposable sanitary items are tested on animals, and are therefore not cruelty free or vegan.
Enter- The Reusable Mooncup (UK shipping only).
The Mooncup is a medical standard soft silicone reusable menstrual cup which is worn internally like a tampon. However, unlike tampons the Mooncup doesn’t absorb menstruation blood, but collects it, meaning the Mooncup does not cause any dryness or interfere with your healthy vaginal environment.
There are no dyes, perfumes, BPA, phthalates, plastic, bleaches or toxins in the Mooncup, and it is free from latex, meaning its far gentler on your vagina than the regular tampon, and is ideal if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
The Mooncup can also hold up to 3 times more blood than a regular tampon, giving you longer lasting protection on heavier days and less frequent visits to the toilet for tampon changes.
And, since one Mooncup will last you for years, its not only great for the environment, but also for your pocket, paying for itself in about 6 – 8 months. Yay to no more monthly sanitary product spends!
