The Diva Cup
Category : Uncategorized
No, I don’t have personal experience with the Diva Cup myself, but Joanne asked me to write a post about it.
The Diva Cup is a replacement for disposable menstrual products. Combined with Lunapads (washable cloth menstrual pads), you may never have to buy disposable tampons or pads ever again. This may not seem like much, but according to the Diva Cup website:
Women, on average, experience a lifetime menstruation span of 41 years (11-52). From use of disposable feminine hygiene, an estimated 12 billion sanitary pads and 7 billion tampons are dumped into the North American environment each year (1998). More than 170,000 tampon applicators were collected along U.S. coastal areas between 1998 and 1999. Our revolutionary, reusable product is a modern, viable alternative to disposable tampons and pads.
You can also save a lot of money switching to sustainable menstrual products. Just think of all the pads and tampons you won’t be buying!
You can buy the Diva Cup and Lunapads right from Lunapads, a Vancouver-based, woman-owned small business.
While this isn’t something that will directly help animals, any steps we take to make our footprint smaller and reduce the amount of waste going into landfills will benefit all residents of this planet.
