Face of Mooncup Competition: Celebrating Mooncup Users

Are you the Face of Mooncup? If you’re a #RealMooncupUser, then yes, you are.

The secret of the Mooncup® is out!

From early day whispers to Whatsapp groups with sisters, it spread like wildfire…

To your friends, your daughters, your mothers. In fact, to anyone who’d listen!

It was YOU. Who helped to smash the menstrual cup taboo.

At Mooncup, we’re on a mission to champion you, the users!

As the creators of the original silicone menstrual cup, we’ve been around for quite some time – seventeen years to be precise! We were founded way back in 2002; the days when thin eyebrows were all the rage and menstrual cups were practically unheard of!

We learnt along our journey that ‘word of mouth’ recommendations were vital in taking the Mooncup® from ‘hippy alternative’ to a mainstream option.

Did you know that our Mooncup users have prevented over 1.7 billion tampons or pads ending up on beaches or in landfill? 

Enter our campaign to >> WIN a Zero Waste Hamper and £125 to spend at Etsy.

Are you the “Face of Mooncup”?

Face of Mooncup is a simple campaign to demonstrate that there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ Mooncup user; each one of us is unique. All that unites us is a common mission to make the experience of periods positive, healthy and eco-friendly.

Kath Clements, Marketing Director at Mooncup explains:

“Our users have always been our most powerful advocates. For a small ethical business selling a one-off purchase, we’ve not got the multi-billion pound marketing spend of the disposable sanitary product giants, and word-of-mouth marketing has been a key element of our success.

“This campaign is a great way for us to showcase the diversity of our users, to celebrate them, and effectively continue the tradition of word-of-mouth marketing using its new habitat, social media.”
