This comfortable menstrual cup is a great opportunity to make a swap that will have your body feeling great while doing good for the environment

Santa Barbara, California — (16th December, 2021): A new year is a great opportunity to make a swap that will have your body feeling great while doing good for the environment. There is no need for a long list of “to-do’s” for 2022. The New Year can bring a new you with one simple step — making a significant impact on personal health and the planet’s health by switching to the Kind Cup menstrual cup. The form-fitting shape ensures leak-proof comfort, allowing up to twelve hours before emptying, which means utmost convenience and much less waste from single use pads and tampons.

One menstruating person will use between 5 and 15 thousand pads and tampons in their lifetime. They most often end up in a landfill, and because they are close to 90% plastic, they can take up to 500 years to break down. That is not the kind of footprint one wants to leave on the world. And due to the pesticide and bleach in the non-organic cotton, it’s also not how one wants to treat their body. Additionally, with each menstruating person spending close to $2,000 on menstrual hygiene products in a lifetime, the simple purchase of a reusable menstrual cup means one less monthly cost. The best part — the Kind Cup is easier to use than you might think, is leak proof, and designed to be ergonomically correct, making it one of the most comfortable cups on the market.

“Switching to the Kind Cup is a great way to experience a better period while creating a better planet. It doesn’t take long to experience the immediate rewards of using a sustainable product that is convenient and feels great. ” Christine Brown, Kind Cup designer and founder. “In fact, so often switching to a menstrual cup is the catalyst to exploring other areas of your day to day life that can become healthier and more sustainable as well!”

Three Reasons to Use Kind Cup:

  • Better for the planet: Single-use period products create over 200,000 tons of waste per year and take up to 500 years to decompose. Additionally, the harmful pesticides and toxins found in these products make their way into our landfills and waterways. The processing of raw materials used to make single-use products, including the fossil fuel emissions resulting from their production, all add up to create significant, lasting environmental impacts. Kind Cup, in comparison, is a sustainable, long-lasting solution with minimal environmental impact.
  • Better for the body: Often, period products contain harmful polymers and dioxins, which are dangerous chemical by-products of bleached cotton. What we place inside our bodies matters. Full transparency and sourcing of the highest quality materials means Kind Cup only uses non-toxic, 100% medical-grade silicone that meets U.S. FDA regulations. Kind Cups are non-toxic, 100% medical-grade silicone, and meet US FDA regulations. Kind Cup conforms to the following biological testing protocols: systemic toxicity, intracutaneous toxicity, and 7-day implant.
  • Better for the budget: With an average of 456 periods in one’s life, using about 20 tampons each period means one person can use approximately 9,120 tampons. With an average price of seven dollars for a box of 36 tampons, the total amount a person will spend on tampons is roughly $1,773.33. One Kind Cup is $39 and, with proper care, can be used for up to 10 years.

Often, the most significant barrier to trying a menstrual cup is not understanding how to use it. Find detailed information on using a Kind Cup here.
