The average woman uses approximately 20 tampons per cycle, which equals 240 tampons each year, and 9,600 her whole life.
Apart from the plastic tubes and plastic packaging in the products themselves - they pose a threat to our health too from TSS.
Enter the menstrual cup...
Whether you're at home, at work, or on the go, Lunette menstrual cups are designed to be simple and fuss-free period cups.
Benefits of menstrual cups:
Better for the body: Tampons absorb 35% of your natural moisture causing a pH imbalance. They also leave behind fibers and can cause TSS. If they aren't organic, they will leach bleach and other not nice chemicals into your blood stream.
Better for the environment: You only need one cup for your whole life, which means you don't need to purchase plastic-packaged, plastic-tubed tampons or disposable pads
Better for your wallet: Say goodbye to the days of buying tampons or pads every month - one cup should last you 10-20 years. So the one purchase of $39.99 will mean you don't have to spend $5-10 every month on these disposables. This can save you $100 per year!
