After two pregnancies and realising I needed to join the super absorbency tampon club, I went to pick up a box and saw a few brands of menstrual cups on the shelves. They were affordable and good for the planet, and since I was recycling and using reusable glass containers for my lunches already, it felt like it was my duty to Mother Nature to give it a try. I quickly became a huge fan of my cup, and haven’t used a tampon since!
