Have you seen the Netflix Show, Tidying Up With Marie Kondo? Her method of keeping a home in shipshape is letting go of anything that doesn’t “spark joy”. I think it’s time we apply this to our beauty products too, don’t you?
Replacing boxes of pads and tampons with a Lunette Cup is a sweet first step. Not only are they hella cute (they are small and come in lots of pretty colors) but period cups are kind to your body and the environment.
Let’s take a closer look at all the reasons why a Lunette Cup deserves a star spot in your life.
Nourishment For Your Body and Mind
Comfier Than Your Favorite Pair of Socks
It might be that you find tampons or pads a little uncomfortable but you put up with them because they’re familiar and easy to use (which is totally understandable!).
For a lot of people, a menstrual cup is a peachy alternative. Once inserted properly, you shouldn’t be able to feel it inside you even when you’re playing sports or boogying the night away.
That’s what Lunette customers experience, anyway! Lunette Cups are made from super soft silicone making them easy to insert and dreamy to wear.
It can take a bit of practice to insert and remove your cup properly but once you’ve mastered it, it’s easy-breezy. Become a cup champion using these ace beginner tips.
No Leakage, No Worries
Dry and clean pants no matter how heavy you’re bleeding or what you’re doing. With a Lunette cup this fantasy becomes a reality.
You can go to music festivals, enjoy a long camping trip, swim in the ocean, exercise like an Olympian, and dance into the early hours of the morning. Menstrual cups are designed specifically to prevent leakage so you can live life to the max.
All you need to do is make sure you clean your cup regularly. For anyone with a light period, you can keep your cup in for up to 12 hours. For those who bleed more heavily, you’re might need to empty it a few times a day.
Never ‘Run Out’
You never have to stress about running out of your period wear. FDA recommends you change your cup every two to three years. That means you’ll only ever need one cup for every 36 periods! Not bad when you think about how many tampons or pads you need per cycle, right? Imagine how much money you could save too.
Ultimately, a period cup lets you live spontaneously. You can leave the house and go on an adventure with your favorite people without ever needing to worry about packing enough period products.
Doing Your Part for the Planet
Is there anything more fulfilling than protecting this beautiful world we live in? (Okay, we know nothing beats the feeling of taking your bra off after a really long day.) BUT being environmentally friendly is rewarding on a whole new level.
We can’t put it better than Sir David Attenborough: “The natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much that makes life worth living.”
Help preserve our precious planet by switching from disposables to reusable period products. Tampons and pads make up a frightening amount of waste in our landfills (the average person uses roughly 17,000 disposable period products in their lifetime) which rots and releases methane gas into the atmosphere contributing to global warming.
Failing to make environmentally-friendly adjustments like this will make global warming worse resulting in greater:
- Life-threatening natural disasters
- Air pollution
- Animal extinction
- Ocean acidity
- Rising sea levels
If that’s not nightmare material, we don’t know what is.
Using a Lunette Cup is SO much better for the environment. One cup lasts for several years; when you are done with it, you can safely burn it without emitting harmful chemicals into the environment. Our cup packaging is 100% compostable –– yup, even the plastic-looking window, which is made of wood pulp. Talk about a zero waste period!
Supporting Humans Everywhere
At Lunette, we want to be a company you’re proud to support. Plus, we love making folks happy. To achieve these things, we set our sights on supporting humankind.
There are so many stubborn taboos surrounding menstruation that prevent people from loving themselves, keeping healthy and living life to the fullest. We’re here to crush period stigma so people can liberate themselves from damaging beliefs and foster healthier relationships with their bodies.
We also think individuality is AWESOME and you should be free to embrace yourself fully.
