Once you use these you'll wonder why you didn't make the change sooner!
Lunette are a highly respected manufacturer of Menstrual Cups, who make two different cups from quality health approved, soft, medical grade silicon which is BPA and chemical free.
This one, the Model 2 is best for reducing the amount of times that the cup is emptied. More people prefer Model 1 than Model 2 but being slightly larger is important for some users so this one is great for them.
All Lunette menstrual cups give you a comfortable, safe, odorless and eco-friendly period for up to 12 hours a day.
Easy to keep clean and lasting for several years, this product basically pays for itself after just 3 months! It’s produced with the highest standards, testing and love. Each Lunette menstrual cup comes with a matching pouch (so you can keep it with you for whenever you need) and a handy guide.

Materials and Environment:
Package is made from cardboard and a plant cellulose based clear viewing window (to stop people from touching the menstrual cup in the shop).
The cup itself is made from medical grade silicone. It lasts a long time which is necessary to perform it's job but it will also take a very long time to break down in landfill. However silicone such as this, from reputable manufacturers has no toxic or damaging components so once in landfill it will not cause any further harm.
It is supplied with a small polyester pouch (which isn't ldeal) but overall it's a huge waste saving compared to using tampons and pads.
End of life:
The cardboard box goes in with your recycling waste (first remove the clear PLA window). Make sure that the clear PLA window goes into landfill as these plant based, biodegradable materials can take a long time to break down so we don't want them left around anywhere where they could get into waterways.
The silicone cup is to be disposed of in with your landfill waste.
The polyester bag is also to be disposed of with your landfill waste.
