That time of the month just keeps on coming. We don’t know anyone who actually feels good when they get their period, just when it’s over! So, if you’re curled up with a hot water bottle in your waistband and a kilo of chocolate in your mitts (we’re not judging) then have a chuckle at this Period Drama from Mooncup. It’s made to lighten your day and your mood!
We’re big fans of being green, especially with our health and beauty routines; and taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint is firmly on our agenda this year. Did you know that on average one woman will use over 11,000 tampons or pads in her lifetime, all of which will end up in landfill or in the sea? If you want to try a much greener alternative then the Mooncup menstrual cup is for you. The safer, greener, cheaper alternative to monthly disposables frees your from monthly trips to the shop, carrying around spares and constant changes. Celebrating independence and self-sufficiency, using the Mooncup gives people the power to ditch the disposables and make an active choice to own their period.
Here’s a little bit more about Mooncup and why we love it!
Made from soft, medical-grade silicone, it’s so comfortable you can’t feel it’s there. While tampons absorb 35% of vaginal moisture, the Mooncup won’t dry you out or leave fibres behind.
Your Mooncup’s always there, ready. No last minute dash to the shops, no stockpiling different absorbency pads or tampons. Using the Mooncup means you don’t have to throw away used products or carry bulky spares (whether smuggled up your sleeve as you head to the toilet or taking up backpack space on your travels).
Holding three times more than a regular tampon, the Mooncup gives you longer lasting protection on heavier days. And because it’s non-absorbent, it won’t cause dryness when your period’s light.
You only need one Mooncup that pays for itself after 6-8 months – you’re then saving that monthly spend on sanitary protection.
Latex-free, hypoallergenic and containing no dyes, perfumes, BPA, phthalates, plastic, bleaches or toxins, the Mooncup menstrual cup is ideal if you have sensitive skin or allergies.
