Whenever the topic of periods come up, someone always asks, “Has anyone tried those cups?” Until now, I hadn’t, but was always curious. I can now tell you: Lunette cups are not only SO easy, but they’re also efficient and incredibly eco-friendly! Take $10 off and note that 15% of every Lunette Menstrual Cup purchase for the month of June will go to Planned Parenthood.
What’s a menstrual cup?
I’m thrilled that people are finally beginning to take a hard look at how their day-to-day practices are affecting the environment. Feminine products are a HUGE part of this waste and menstrual cups are one of the most eco-friendly alternatives (if not the top one) out there. Easily inserted inside, the Lunette cup (two sizes, light to normal and normal to heavy flow) is a small cup that gives you period protection for up to 12 hours a day…why didn’t we think of this sooner?
What are the benefits?
ECO-FRIENDLY Let’s be honest here, pads and tampons are NOT eco-friendly, especially if there’s plastic involved (which there usually is, even if it’s the little plastic pad bags). Lunette’s cup boxes are both recyclable and compostable.
REUSABLE Your Lunette cup will last you for several years and they’re very easy to care for, too. Lunette also makes cup wipes (for when you’re on the go or if there’s no water nearby) and a vegan cup cleanser. FYI: Lunette’s cups are made of soft medical grade FDA-approved silicone and are BPA free (no odor, yeast or bacteria).
MONEY SAVING No more buying tampons, pads and liners monthly. Think of all the money you spend a month on feminine hygiene. The Lunette cup is $39.99 ($10 less with my discount below) and will last you a year.
EASY TO USE Each cup comes with a cute little drawstring bag in the bottom of the box so you can carry it discreetly and keep it clean. Keep a cup in your bag so you have one whenever you need it. I love the idea of always having one on hand and not having to run to the store when you get your period. In terms of inserting, there’s simple directions on the box and online.
OVERNIGHT USE How great is it that the cup can be also be used overnight? After having used it during the day a few times, I went to sleep worry-free.
If you haven’t used a cup before, please don’t be intimidated. I was and it was all for naught. Like anything else, you try it once or twice and it’s so simple. Then, after using it a few times you can figure out your flow and see what size works for you and how often you empty. Plus, there’s these lines on the sides of the cup so you can get an idea of how much your cup has gathered to make your next use even easier! The Lunette is emptied between 2-4 times a day. Oh, and one more thing: the cups are so light and easy to bend…in other words, not the least bit intimidating. They also have different ways that you can fold them for insertion, so you can find a way that’s comfortable for you.
