Are you brave enough? The Mooncup is a reusable menstrual cup made from soft medical grade silicone, so latex-free, hypoallergenic, contains no dyes, BPA, phthalates, plastic, bleaches, or toxins. While tampons and pads absorb menstrual fluid, the Mooncup collects it. This means it doesn’t cause dryness or irritation, and that it collects far more (three times as much as a tampon!)
They recon this will save you on average £1200 over tampons and reduce the 28,000 tampons and plastic applicators that accumulate on our beaches every year world wide.
Don't take our word for it:
"The moon Cup changed my life. So much easier and comfier than tampons, for anyone who hasn't tried it I can't tell you how much of a game changer it has been, and not just on the waste front, but just simply on the period front"
"I dismissed mooncups for years as being gross and too tree-huggy for me. I tried one about 6 months ago and I have to say I'm a complete convert. It's not without logistics to consider but I only need to empty it twice a day so can do it morning and evening"
"I was horrified when I found out that most tampons are bleached with horrible toxic chemicals (hence the ‘toxic shock syndrome’ warning on the leaflets inside the packaging). I switched to a mooncup a year ago and love it!"
"I really like using it, and it has done two things apart from reducing the waste... Reduced the discomfort and belly pain, and it's shortened my period but about 1 day! What's not to like!"

Women on average use over 11,000 disposable sanitary products in their lifetime: 22 tampons or towels on average per period. In the UK alone, 4.3 billion disposable sanitary products are used every year, their packaging, applicators, and backing-strips end up in landfill or in the sea.
