The cup is free from chemicals. It is made of 100% medical grade silicone and contains no harmful absorbency gels, additives or perfumes.
Silicone better than cotton
If you compare the low-impact mining of mineral sands which are used in the manufacture of silicone, to the production of cotton, which requires copious amounts of water, soil and pesticides, it is clear that using silicone based products substantially reduces our carbon footprint. A study showed using silicone products, generated less greenhouse-gas emissions by enabling energy saving technologies and a more efficient use of energy and materials.
Reusable and therefore less waste than with tampons/pads.
Since the cup can be washed and reused for up to 10 years you can make a positive environmental impact by not contributing to the waste of disposable sanitary products. During her reproductive life, a woman contributes about 12,000 pads or tampons that take hundreds of years to biodegrade in landfills.
Less money spent on plumbing
On top of it tampons and pads are responsible for almost 75% of all plumbing costs in a household, just imagine.
