Make the switch for yourself today, or get a cup for a friend, your sister, wife or daughter.

This will save a lot of money and be good to the environment as an average woman uses around 10 to 15,000 pads or tampons while menstruating. That is a lot of waste clogging our drains and to sit in our landfills and waterways. The Cup is also cleaner and better for your body and suitable for women of all ages, sizes, and lifestyles.

There are lots of reasons why switching to a cup could make sense for you. Apart from being easy to use, fresh and comfortable, a cup is eco-friendly (no waste) and can save lots of money as it can be re-used up to 10 years. You’ll never ‘run out’ of protection.

More and more studies shows that tampons and pads are bad for your body, yet the big corporations wants you to buy them every month as is it’s a major business. That may be the reason you may have not heard about the genius cup that has been on the market for some 80 years.

 

Good for your body

The Cup is healthier. It is made of 100% medical grade silicone and is free from chemicals and contains NO harmful absorbency gels, additives, toxins, pesticides, bleaches or perfumes. It does not leave fibers behind or dry you out.

  • Silicone is better than cotton.

 

Good for the planet

A woman uses around 12,000 pads, tampons and applicators in a lifetime that ends up in our landfills or the oceans, and takes hundreds of years to decompose. A cup can be re-used for up to 10 years.

 

Good for your purse

A woman can spend thousands of dollars on pads and tampons over the years. A cup costs $30 to $40 dollars to buy and lasts up to 10 years, and you save on less expensive bills from your plumber.

 

The Cup is fresher

Discover the healthy, “non-ick” alternative to traditional feminine hygiene products. The Cup eliminates menstrual odor, since menstrual flow isn't exposed to air. For the first time, with The Cup you feel fresh and confident the entire day!

 

For Active Girls

  • Swim, dance, walk, sleep, jump - and even feel free and look good naked!
     
  • Your perfect teammate, wear during sports and other physical activities.
     
  • Great for busy women, or women who just don't want to have to think about changing a pad or a tampon every few hours. Athletes rave about how it carries them through a long race.
     
  • Feel great without any peek-a-boo strings at the beach.
     
  • Travelers don't leave home without it.

 

Good for Sleep

The Cup holds at least three times as much fluid as a tampon, giving longer lasting protection on heavier days. You will feel fresh and secure in your sleep. No worries about staying close to a bathroom. You can wear your Cup for 12 hours at a time, so you have the convenience of not having to think about your period all night long! And why not sleep nude (and no one will be the wiser).

 

CUP FOR HER

The Cup has a mission to educate and empower girls living in challenging environments by giving them life skills training and access to menstrual cups.

Imagine getting your period for the first time and not have access to simple things such as sanitary pads or tampons and being forced to find makeshift solution every month. This is the reality for millions of adolescent girls living in poverty around the world.

When managing their periods, these girls use things they can find, such as a pieces of mattress, cloth, old socks, tissue or a newspaper. Using these materials often leads to infections. At times girls even lack underwear to carry a protection. Some girls are so frustrated that they engage in transactional sex to buy sanitary pads. This may result in unwanted pregnancies, HIV/Aids or other sexually transmitted diseases.

As a result of all this many girls are forced to stay at home missing a week of school every month due to their periods. Their education suffers as a result and many of them are forced to drop out of school for good.
