With 2019 drawing to a close and the new year upon us, it’s very typical to start making New Year's resolutions such as eating healthier, reducing procrastination, or spending less. Most resolutions include learning something new or trying to do something better.
Going green and thinking about your footprint on the planet is probably one of the most responsible resolutions you can make in the coming new year. The reality is that the average person disposes of about 300 lbs. of period trash in their lifetime. Sanitary pads are plastic-based with non-biodegradable content that takes centuries to decompose. Every time you use a pad, it is going to last many lifetimes. While we are generally not left with a choice to have a period or not, we definitely have a choice on how we handle it and switching to a menstrual cup is the safest, most effective and affordable option that one can make.
The Lunette cup is made of flexible silicone and comes in two sizes. Instead of absorbing your flow, like a tampon or pad, it catches and collects it. Easy and safe to use, the new vegan menstrual cup is made of soft, toxin-free medical-grade silicone and does not contain any of the chemicals typically found in commercial grade tampons and pads. Each cup can last up to 12 hours.
Better still, they do not leak, require minimal changing, and can be worn overnight. If taken care of well, a menstrual cup can last a decade.
With the festive period upon us, a menstrual cup is also a great unique gift idea for your families and friends. There are so many benefits to having a Lunette menstrual cup which makes it an excellent, practical gift. Investing in one not only makes having your period a lot easier, but it aids in making that time of the month eco-friendlier and more cost-efficient.
Lunette Menstrual Cup retails at AED 157.5 and comes in a vibrant violet colour and two sizes. It is available for purchase at Boots, Spinney’s and United Pharmacy stores and online on Sprii.com and Amazon.com.
