Whether you are a teenager getting your first period, mama with children or simply a woman without children looking for greener options, I would love for you to look into trying the Instead Softcup. Softcup is a flexible cup worn internally, around your cervix. It collects, verses absorbs menstrual flow. It’s hypo-allergenic, latex-free and completely safe when used as directed. You can use one reusable softcup throughout entire cycle, saving you money and the environment when comparing it to traditional tampons and pads. You can wear the softcup for up to 12 hours (whether using the disposable or reusable option) and most women typically use fewer softcups than tampons or pads (when using the disposable softcup) because of the long wear-time thus creating less waste for landfills.
You can get more information from the Instead Softcup Website and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
