Mooncup is the original, soft, medical-grade silicone menstrual cup designed by women as the convenient, healthy and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and pads. Available in two sizes.

- Size B (for women under 30 who have not given birth vaginally)
- Made to last for years
- Healthy alternative to tampons and pads
- Eliminates the need for disposables
- HOW IT HELPS+
- Every year, in Britain alone, a staggering 1 billion tampons and sanitary towels are used and disposed of – many ending up in the sewerage system. Our current habits serve the large sanitary protection manufacturers very well and the environment very badly.
While we avoid talking about it, many of those towels and tampons, along with their plastic applicators, stay-fresh perfumes and wrappers, are being flushed unthinkingly down the toilet. These then need to be manually fished out of our liquid sewage before it enters treatment plants, and the mounds of leftover sanitary waste are then sent to landfill.
Mooncup is the healthier, greener and cheaper alternative drastically reducing the number of products you’ll use in lifetime from 11,000 to around 5 - freeing you from the monthly trips to the shops it’ll pay for itself after 6-8 months. In addition to this, medical research has found that the pesticides used in growing the cotton for tampons, and the bleach to make them white, can be absorbed into the body.
Your Mooncup is always there, ready - eliminating the need to stockpile different absorbency pads or tampons, and to carry around spares.
