    This post contains a gifted product, sent with no obligation to post. I haven’t dedicated a single post to a review on here before, but I am so pleased with this product I needed to find somewhere to write about why I liked it so much. When I took the plunge and began using a Menstrual Cup, I’ll be honest and say I brought the first one that appeared on Google. I should have done more research because I bet I can find a better one for my body and flow. Don’t get me wrong, I like my MoonCup, but having only one Menstrual Cup has meant that it’s my…

    Journey to eco-friendly periods | The cup

    Welcome to my Journey to eco-friendly periods blog series, in which I discuss the ways I’ve changed how I manage my period so it is more sustainable. For the back story on why I decided to change my routine, including statistics on the plastic contained in common period products (like up to 4 plastic bags worth of plastic!) or how they’re harmful toward the planet, be sure to read the first part of my series. When talking about eco-friendly periods, it’s impossible not to mention menstrual cups as the two are pretty much synonymous. They were the first thing I looked into when making my switch to find environmentally friendly…
