Every woman uses about 11000 sanitary products over their lifetime and spends an average £1200 on them. When thrown away, all these disposable sanitary products end up in landfil or incineration, while flushed tampons and pads block sewers and eventually make their way to our seas and beaches. Nearly 28000 used tampons and aplicators are collected on our wolrd's beaches on a single day.
And if the above are not enough reasons to make the swap, here is why you should consider choosing Mooncup over disposable menstrual products:
Made from soft, medical-grade silicone, it’s so comfortable you can’t feel it’s there. While tampons absorb 35% vaginal moisture, the Mooncup menstrual cup won’t dry you out or leave fibres behind.
Your Mooncup is always there, ready. No last minute dash to the shops, no stockpiling different absorbency pads or tampons. The Mooncup frees you from having 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 3 x 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
