Mooncup Menstrual Cup
Why do we promote feminine hygiene products?
Barefoot support all sort of environmental and healthy initiatives and so when the owners first learnt about Mooncup through our organic food suppliers we thought that it was something that we should support. There are other menstrual cups available, like Diva Cup.
We also use and promote Ecover cleaning products which are designed to be naturally mild on you and the environment.
the healthy altenative to tampons
From the Mooncup website:
The Mooncup® is the original silicone menstrual cup designed by women to be a convenient, safe and eco-friendly alternative to tampons and sanitary pads. Loved by women all around the world, and made in the UK by a multi-award winning ethical business, the Mooncup offers an end to the waste, discomfort and expense of disposable sanitary protection.
Made from medical grade silicone, the Mooncup is latex-free and contains no dyes, toxins or bleaches. It’s also great for women with sensitive skin.
On average, one woman will use over 11,000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, which will end up in landfill or in the sea.
One woman uses up to 22 items of sanitary protection every period. Regardless of your flow, you only need one Mooncup, and it lasts for years and years, making it the most economical sanitary product you can buy.
Barefoot sell Mooncups in our Newport store (link to Mooncup website). You can come and see the product for yourself before you buy and Fiona (herself a user) is more than happy to talk to you about why and how to use a Mooncup and assuage your fears about changing your lifestyle and getting rid of tampons. Alternatively you can buy a Mooncup online via the Mooncup website.
