Environmental Benefits

Environmental Benefits

The mooncup has changed my life!

It sounds like an over exaggeration but I have suffered with heavy periods since being a teenager. I have had many embarrassing accidents due to tampons soaking through and sanitary towels.

I am a student nurse so I often have 13 hour shifts. I would usually be soaked through by my break time or the end of a long lecture. But i have not leaked once.

I was a bit dubious about using it at night since often I wake up to something out of a horror film after 3 hours. But even on nights where I’ve slept through i was clean!

I also like a lot of ladies on here had to purchase half of boots to get me through my period. So it’s practically paid for it’s self after 2 months! And you are helping the environment.

I will never go back to using tampons and sanitary towels.

I bought a Mooncup a few months ago after a ton of research and I’ll never look back. It is so comfortable and easy to use once you’re used to it (which for me was within a few days). Now when I have my period I nearly always forget I’m even on because it’s such a hassle free experience! Also it is so nice knowing I am no long contributing to the detrimental amount of waste sanitary products unnecessary cause. Could not recommend this company and product more.

I’ve been contemplating using a menstrual cup for a long time… And it was only when my sister told me that she’s been using one for about a year that I finally took the plunge and bought a mooncup for myself. Oh my lord, why did I not do this sooner?? I was really quite nervous about using one… “what if I can’t get it out!!” was the main thing that ran through my head… But reading all the testimonials and the information leaflet that comes with it… I did it! I did a couple of “dry runs” before leaving it in for the day so that I could practice removing the cup and I scared myself – I couldn’t reach it!! Absolute nigthmare and exactly what I was worried about! But, I relaxed, and gently pushed the cup down like the information leaflet says to and… Hey Presto, it was easy as that!! So I did it again to make sure, and it was fine! All that worrying and wasting sanitary products for nothing!
Ladies, this is immense… The environmental impact alone is worth doing this! I’m an adventurous person, and going camping/on holiday/long kayak trips/everything, is made so much easier and simpler by this one little cup. No more over packing sanitary products and wondering what to do with the used ones whilst you’re out in the middle of nowhere! Genius! People need to spread this, not just on these testimonials, but EVERYWHERE! It shouldn’t be a taboo topic to talk about – I’ve shared it with my other sister and friends now and they’re trying it also!!
No reports of leakage so far… But I’m willing to accept small leakages and take a reusable pantyliner just in case.
If you didn’t guess… I’m so happy with this product! 😀

After being initially dubious about the mooncup, having concern with possible leakage & comfort, I can now say I’d never go back to tampons! With an ever growing concern for the environment and not to mention the health risks with tampons, the mooncup is the way to go. It’s comfortable, there’s no leakage and there’s no dryness that I used to get from tampons when coming to the end of my menstrual cycle!

Wow – I was hesitant to swap to a Mooncup to start with, but after a couple of practises it is easily the best thing I’ve ever bought! Saving the planet and saving money! 10/10

After seeing at a stand in Glastonbury a few years back, I have always wandered what it actually would be like to use a Mooncup as there is a lot of stigma around ‘reusable sanitary products’ being dirty etc, but on looking at how many chemicals I have been using in Tampons for years I was shocked! Only 1 week after my New Years resolution had been set of using my new Mooncup, I have 100% been converted. A bit of trial and error at first but it’s super easy & I feel so much less toxic to the environment! MAKE THESE TAX FREE!!!

Without sounding dramatic, using a mooncup has actually changed my life! 1 year after first using one, I can’t imagine ever going back to tampons and pads. It took a couple of uses to get used to but now I find it so comfortable and easy to use. Being better for the environment is a huge bonus. I recommend a mooncup to everyone now!!

Back in 2007 I saw an advert for a mooncup on the back of a toilet door in a youth hostel in Canada, I was intrigued but didn’t go any further than that.

Last year I decided I had had enough of pads and tampons, firstly due to the crazy amount of waste they produce with chemical processes and plastics and secondly I always felt a bit dirty and uncomfortable.

WHY oh WHY did I not try this sooner. Yes its a bit of a faff and takes some time to get use to it but this small fry in comparison with the benefits, its blooming brilliant. Have a go its a game changer.

I bought my mooncup over 2 years ago when I moved into a house of boys and didn’t want to leave used tampons in the bathroom bins, and I can honestly say I’ve never looked back. I didn’t believe the hype but it was so true – no more leaks, no more tampons, no more anxiety about whether or not I’ve bled through my tampon already. Every woman should own a mooncup.

Today is my second day of using mooncup . I’m 41 , and my periods are perfect to live with . No pain , medium bleeding, 3 days only . But the comfort with mooncup cannot compare with pads or tampons. I can’t use second one . I feel pain and big discomfort.
First day was a struggle, because of “installation ” problems . But after many times I’ve tried, I’ve learned to do it with one attempt. At night was feeling really relaxed . Can’t even feel it no more .
Ladies really you should get your own mooncup! It’s cleaner, more comfortable and better for your pocket and most important, good for our planet . Just a thought on the end , why you should have one those dangerous days . Climate change , wars … testimonials of women of war , homeless women about big suffer involving those days because of lack of higene product should make us think. I feel like if anything will happen tomorrow, with mooncup I’m safe .
Let’s change the world of women period.
We safe a lot of money using mooncup . Maybe a promise to yourself buy second one for homeless lady in your town ?
I’m buying one next month .
With menstruation cups we can help girls which are forced to stay at home for few days in a month and can’t attend school. We can make a big difference!
Thank you mooncup !
