With increased attention around the safety of tampons and growing environmental concerns regarding the impact of disposable feminine hygiene products, many are turning to a safer, more eco-friendly option: menstrual cups.
Made with phthalate-free and BPA-free medical-grade silicone and free from bleaches and fragrances, Lunette Menstrual Cups are a welcome addition to our Wellness Department.
Because they are built to collect fluids rather than absorb them, menstrual cups do not disturb the body’s delicate moisture and ph levels and have a reduced risk of causing toxic shock syndrome.
Additionally, menstrual cups are reusable and can last for up to 3 years, which could keep a lot of waste out of our landfills.
We are especially proud to partner with Lunette because of their commitments to inclusivity, education, and accessibility. Lunette partners with non-profits in the U.S. and around the globe to provide access to feminine hygiene products and ensure easier, safer periods. They’ve donated menstrual cups to school girls in Kenya and Burkina Faso, as well as homeless women in New York. They also host an educational blog on their website which covers topics such as periods in prison and non-binary menstruation.
If you’re curious about making the switch to menstrual cups, don’t hesitate to ask one of our Wellness Department staff members.
