Single use period products are responsible for a huge amount of waste that goes to landfill. They're often made with chemicals which prevent your body from behaving as it naturally would too.
Menstrual cups are a great alternative to tampons. A conservative estimate of you spending £2.90 a month on tampons with 12 periods a year means that your period alone could set you back £290 for the length of time a menstrual cup lasts (10 years). You'll also be stopping over 2400 tampons from going to landfill.
The menstrual cups from UK based Sea and Flo come in 2 sizes with a gorgeous cotton canvas pouch. The pouch has a waterproof lining and the cup itself is black so you can get your goth on and prevent staining.
25% of all profits from these cups is donated to mental health charities.
To find out which size is best for you, check out the explanation pics! As a rule of thumb though, size B is the larger of the two sizes so if you've given birth naturally or you're over 30 - this would probably be best for you.
