Greener Options with Instead Softcup

As most of you already know I am always on the look out for greener options for myself and my family and will always pass along any information to you all as well when I come across any greener alternatives.  With most of the world trying to go green these days there are more and more options becoming available for just about everything under the sun, even the not so comfortable to talk about topics that we as women encounter. 

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.


  1. This might be a little blunt, but I'm using an instead cup right now. Love them, great that I don't have to mess with pads or tampons while I'm out and about juggling 2 kids and running errands. They last 6 hours on a really heavy day and 12 hours easy on a lighter day.
