One Mooncup, the reusable menstrual cup, size A. Made in Brighton, by Mooncup, packed in October 2018.
Disposable period products have a large environmental impact, and this has become an important topic of conversation. A disposable tampon is around 6% plastic, and many have plastic applicators. This means they take a long time to break down in landfill and disposable period products are regularly found during beach cleans in the UK. Reusable menstrual cups like this offer an alternative which has much less impact on the environment.
However, the high upfront cost of purchasing reusable products and the need to sanitise them regularly means that access to them is not always equal.
