Do you curse your period? Apart from all the cramps and mess, do you hate how many tampons and pads you buy, use, and throw away?
We’re partnering with Intimina, a Swedish company, to introduce you to what may be the best tampon alternative you’ll ever find: the Lily Cup. (Don’t miss the special 15% discount offer below!)
It’s a menstrual cup you wear inside your vagina, sort of like a birth-control diaphragm if you’ve ever used one of those. The brilliance of the cup is that it catches menstrual fluid and contains it until you can dump it out.
What difference does it make? Take a look at this chart. 1 Lily cup can replace 1625 tampons!
Do the math:
4 tampons (on average)/day X 7 days (on average)/ month X 12 months = 336 tampons/year.
It would take you over 5 years to use as many tampons as one Lily Cup replaces.
You can actually calculate how many tampons you’ll use for the rest of your life — and get a sense of how much money you can save while generating a lot less trash – by using this handy “menstrual waste calculator.”
And keep this in mind: approximately 20 billion pads and tampons end up in North American landfills every year! The Lily cup could put a serious dent in all that trash!!
Easy To Use, Easy to Clean, Easy to Carry
While tampons and pads absorb menstrual flow, the cup collects it.
You empty the cup into the toilet as needed, rinse it off if necessary (or not), and re-insert it.
It’s so flexible, it can be rolled as thin as a tampon for insertion.
There is no odor because the cup contains all the flow.
And the cup is easy to take with you, whether to work, on vacation, or when you’re out and about. It comes in a stylish case that looks like a compact that might contain blush or foundation.
At Big Green Purse, we’re all about shifting your spending to products and services that are better for you, better for your pocketbook, and better for the planet, too.
Lily Cup is one of those rare items that meets all three criteria. Give it a try, and let us know how you like it.
