Lunette menstrual cups are designed, developed and packaged with the environment at heart. It’s also the best alternative to disposable period products which pollute our planet.
Our mission is to have honest and inspiring conversation about menstruation so that we can motivate period positivity- and change the world one conversation and one cup at a time. Yesterday, Heli (@HeliK_Lunette ) CEO of Lunette spoke at the UN general assembly in the crucial discussion of “The role of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Economic Empowerment of Women.”“When women and girls are freed from adversities and issues, that come as a result of being on their period, then they can unleash their true empowerment. Unfortunately there are many in the world who are still facing these unnecessary hardships. We believe that positive change is possible and we’re working to prove it.” Heli spoke alongside the Vice President of Costa Rica Ana Helena Chacón Echeverría, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development, Finland, Kai Mykkänen and Minister of Gender, Zambia, Victoria Kalima as well as many others. The discussion reviewed the critical links between sexual and reproductive health and rights and women’s full participation in economic development. It’s critical that we are able to strengthen awareness and to leverage commitment on realizing women’s and girls’ sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and their economic empowerment. Lunette is more than just a menstrual cup. We’re a group of passionate and creative value-activists who want to spread a powerful message. Heli and the rest of the Lunette team are immensely proud and humbled by the opportunity to speak at such an important event about a topic we care so deeply about.

"Violence towards women in refugee camps has nothing to do with lust. It has to do with power. This is unacceptable." -Mr. Frans Timmermans Education and dialog is key to protect women's human rights. "Boys and men are a vital part of the equation in supporting the girl through her journey." -Dr. Natalia Kanem "The barriers that we see are based on social norms. There is an assumption that teaching sexual education will encourage girls to be sexually active." -Dr. Lydia Murithi (sexual and reproductive health specialist, ICRW) It's not easy to integrate sex and reproductive education into the school curriculum. But that's the direction that we need to go in. "We can be proactive as far as documentation. But we need to be proactive in implementation." -Ms. Annah Sango, Zimbabwe Young Positives.) As communities invest in their girls we protect them from violence and maternal death. "Gender based violence effects the wellbeing of women in every country." -Dr. Natalia KanemRead The Story
This month we’re celebrating all the ways we can use 12 hours when we don’t have to worry about our period (Yaass Queeen)! But what’s the deal with the 12 hours? How often should I be emptying my menstrual cup really? Here’s all you need to know: How long can I keep the Lunette menstrual cup in for? The Lunette menstrual cup can be used for up to 12 straight hours. Of course everyone is different and those with a heavier flow may need to empty their cup more often (more on that below). Why 12 hours? The Lunette menstrual cup is made from high-quality medical grade silicone which means it safe inside of you and stays fresh too. However, no period product (or most other items for that matter!), no matter how high quality, should be kept inside your vagina for extended periods of time without checking and cleaning properly. What about if I have a heavy flow? All of us experience different periods and there’s certainly no “one size fits all” guidance. The important thing is to get to know your own flow and adjust to what suits you. Firstly, make sure you get the right size cup. Lunette menstrual cups come in 2 sizes, one of which is better for those who have heavier flows. Those with a heavier flow may also need to empty their cup more frequently. If you’re new to menstrual cups try emptying it every 2 to 4 hours until you get a good sense of how full your cup gets. Can I keep my menstrual cup in overnight? Yes! You can sleep soundly with your Lunette menstrual cup all night long. What if I accidentally leave my cup in for more than 12 hours? Don’t panic. There is no sudden extra danger of having your cup still inside of you for more than 12 hours but it’s best to empty and clean it as soon as you realise. Remove, check and clean your cup like you normally would and continue normal use. However, if you’re concerned it has been a very long time and/or you experience any unusual symptoms then always have a chat with your doctor. How do I clean my cup properly? Simply tip, rinse and wash out! Check out our full handy cleaning guide here for more tips. If you have any other questions about your Lunette menstrual cup let us know. Don’t forget to join in the conversation and tell us how YOU would want to spend 12 hours!Read The Story
Today we’re releasing our new video, a story we’re excited to share and the kind we would like to see more of, both on camera and in the real world. We’re really passionate about the products we make (like truly, madly, deeply kind of passionate) but products only get us so far. It’s the bigger picture stuff, the ideas behind the products, the stories we tell ourselves in our day to day that really makes the difference. Products don’t empower you. We believe you already have the power right there within but that access to informed choices, sharing big ideas and creating new stories for ourselves helps us become empowered. This video is one of many kinds of stories but it’s the kind of journey we’d like, and are determined to, see more of. About the ability to open up to more and pursue those dreams. To dare to have courage in your inner self. To listen to, and share, the colorful visionary you that might have been there all along. Sounding all a bit too idyllic? We get it. But our story really is about giving you more choice, freedom and inspiration to pursue yours, no matter what that might look like. Check out the video here: What sort of empowerment stories would you like to see more of?Read The Story
