Sustainable periods - What's it all about?

 

Move over Tampons and Sanitary pads because there is a new club in town and it is all about promoting sustainability. There is so much choice to choose from when it comes to comfort and protection during your period. 

LETS TALK SUSTAINABLE PERIODS. 

There are two main reasons to start using sustainable period products: reducing less waste, but more importantly to avoid products made with chemicals. A study found that tampons contain undisclosed carcinogens and reproductive toxins, although it has been confirmed by several other scientific sources.

Going eco-friendly and sustainable can apply to your period products too. Between cramps, nausea, and the pink tax, being on your period is hard enough as it is. But if you want to lessen your impact on the planet, there are simple changes you can make for the next time you bleed.

 

So how much do you know about sustainable period products? 

Are you fed up of Tampons and Sanitary pads and want to try something different? 

Wild Women Tea Club are on a mission to educate all girl's from a young age and women about all the different ways to stay comfortable throughout their period. Comfort in your own skin is so important and there is so much to choose from. 

 

WHY BUY A MOONCUP MENSTRUAL CUP?

The Moon Cup is the original silicone menstrual cup. It was designed by women as a convenient, safe, and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and pads.

Tried and trusted since 2002 by millions of users around the world, the menstrual Moon Cup offers an end to the waste, discomfort, and expense of disposable period protection.  

Holding three times more than a regular tampon, the Moon Cup is the perfect menstrual cup for heavy flow. While tampons absorb 35% vaginal moisture, the Moon Cup won’t dry you out or leave fibres behind. The Moon Cup is made in the UK to the highest quality standards and lasts for years and years. With the Moon Cup, it’s time for a better period.

Comfortable

The Moon Cup menstrual cup is made from soft, medical-grade silicone making it so comfortable you can’t feel it’s there. Unlike tampons, which absorb 35% vaginal moisture, the Moon Cup won’t dry you out or leave fibres behind.

Reliable

Your Moon Cup is always there, ready. No last-minute dash to the shops, no stockpiling different absorbency pads or tampons. Holding 3x more than a regular tampon, the Moon Cup is an ideal menstrual cup for heavy flow and provides longer lasting protection. Because the Moon Cup is non-absorbent it won’t cause dryness when your period is light.

Money-saving

Regardless of your flow, you only need one Moon Cup menstrual cup. Your Moon Cup will pay for itself after 6-8 months.

MENSTRUAL SEA SPONGE 

How do menstrual sponges work?   
Menstrual sponges are similar to tampons — they’re inserted into the vagina and absorb menstrual blood, expanding to keep the blood inside the sponge. But they do not have any kind of applicator for easy insertion or a string or rim to help with removal. Unlike tampons, they can be washed and reused after removal. 
So lets educate our daughters as well as ourselves and get super savvy about the different eco friendly, budget friendly and ultra comfortable alternatives there are out there.
