Tampons, pads and panty liners along with their packaging and individual wrapping generate more than 200,000 tonnes of waste per year, and typically all contain plastic. This waste mostly ends up in landfills, sewages, on our beaches and in our oceans.
While the actual products contribute largely to the environmental issue, their life-cycle is just as damaging – from the raw material extraction, which typically involves the production of cotton and the use of pesticides and insecticides, to the fact that most pads contain polyethylene plastic (the adhesive that’s used to make the pad stick to your underwear) and most tampons also contain chemicals such as dioxin, chlorine and rayon. While the products sit in landfills, these chemicals get soaked up by the earth and are released as pollution into the groundwater and air.

STEP 1: FOLD AND INSERT
OrganiCup unfolds to form a light vacuum keeping it securely in place. It won’t fall out (not even if you do a triple somersault). Due to the vacuum, the menstrual blood won’t come into contact with air so no odour issues, ultra hygienic and antibacterial.
STEP 2: WEAR
Wear all-day and all-night. Up to 12 hours leak free with no dryness or irritation. OrganiCup can contain 3 times more than pads and tampons, which means most people just need to empty it morning and evening so no interruptions during the day. Or night. And did you know that about ¼ of the fluids absorbed by a tampon are natural and necessary vaginal secretions? OrganiCup only collects, thus eliminating irritation and dryness while ensuring the natural pH-balance is kept intact.
STEP 3: EMPTY, RINSE AND RE-USE
