Plastic waste is a massive problem. Many people are now trying to reduce plastic use in their homes. From the kitchen to the bedroom to the bathroom, there are plenty of ways to reduce the plastic waste we generate. But for women, there is one area of plastic waste that they may have overlooked – sanitary products. But can you really have a plastic-free period? With our Eko Medical Grade Menstruation Cup, the answer is yes.
Most regular tampons and pads contain plastics, and these often end up polluting our wider environments. Sanitary products generate more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year and much of that waste ends up in landfill sites, on beaches and in our seas and oceans. With a reusable menstrual cup, a woman can reduce her waste impact significantly.
Our Period Cup is 100% Medical Grade Silicone
Unlike most sanitary products, the Eko Menstrual Cup is plastic free. It is made from 100% medical grade silicone – a healthy, safe, inert material with no BPA, latex or dyes. There is no need to buy multiple sanitary products each month and so no need to rack up that plastic waste or spend a fortune during each period. The material is washable, reusable and durable and should keep things comfortable and leak free not just one month, but again and again. What is more, the Eko Cup is allergy certified, FDA registered and is a cruelty-free and ethical Vegan product.
Plastic-Free Packaging Reusable
Not only is the product itself plastic free and sustainable, the packaging has also been tailored to reduce its environmental impact, and is plastic free. The packaging, which is as small as possible to reduce transport emissions, is made from cardboard that is FSC-certified. Instructions have been printed on the carton to avoid additional waste. There is also a cotton storage bag which is made from unbleached organic cotton.
A Safe and Hygienic Menstrual Cup
Once you have folded and inserted your Eko Cup, you can enjoy leak-free freedom for around 12 hours, day or night. Then you can simply empty, rinse and repeat. Safe and hygienic periods are a basic right that all women should enjoy. This affordable, sustainable option means that women around the world are given that right – and don't harm the planet in the process.
Now, teens can go greener too, with the Eko Period Cup small – for younger women or those who need a smaller size. No matter what age you are, where you live, or what your lifestyle may be, in a worrying world, the Eko Cup just gives you one less thing to worry about.
This award-winning product is one of a number of cup-type sanitary products on the market. But if you wish to choose the most eco-friendly and sustainable option, then our eco-friendly menstrual cup is a wonderful choice – just one more way for women to go greener and make a positive difference for people and planet.
