So let’s talk about MENSTRUAL CUPS.

Personally, I was hesitant at first about those weird looking cups. But once I made the switch, I never looked back. Besides all the rubbish I don’t have anymore and all the money I’ve saved, I actually love using menstrual cups.

I was a full-time Scuba Dive Instructor on the Great Barrier Reef, it’s a hectic job, you’re in the water most of the day, have hardly time to go to the toilet and even if you do…there is a full wetsuit and layers of clothes to remove (no, I’m not peeing in my wetsuit!). Can you imagine going through days when your period is really heavy!? – it’s a pain.  Menstrual cups have proven to be the perfect solution for my problem. Unlike tampons, I’m ‘saver’ for a lot longer and have lesser (almost none) leaks.

It’s now been 2 years that I’ve made the switch to menstrual cups. Since then I haven’t purchased ANY sanitary products!

I was interested in the figures on what an impact that has made to my wallet and the bin. So below are very rough calculations based on my personal use:

How good is that!!!

These figures are just based on one person, imagine multiplying these by every women in the world with periods!

To all you ladies out there…MAKE THE SWITCH. It’s worth it, wether you are environmentally conscious or not.

Love, Yvonne
