Ladies, this post is for you. It’s life changing.
And it comes in a little cup that fits in your hand.
We will all have a menstrual cycle, at some point in our lives, starting when we are young girls. You may have daughters starting in the next few years or perhaps its already over for you (lucky ducks). We all know why we have periods, but I’m sure most of us will never understand why they have to be so uncomfortable and messy. I was so tired of dealing with messy tampons, panty liners, pads, strange devices and pms when I came across my first cup years ago. My friend and I had heard about it and wanted to give it a try. We were partially trying to save the earth by reducing the tampons and pads we were using and we also wanted a way to get rid of some of the annoyance. We both loved the cup immediatly. It did take a little time to get used to, and to make sure it was in the right spot, but once it’s there you can not tell you have it in at all! It is amazingly comfortable, reusable and has almost no leakage! I say almost because it is sooo comfortable sometimes you forget you have it in and …oops suddenly you remember and have to rush off to the bathroom. I really hope its not just me that happens to?
Now that I’ve explained how wonderful the cup is, in general, let me add how fabulous the Ruby Cup company is! Think of a company that sells something good for the earth, good for women, helps other women in need and also includes free shipping. You’re thinking there’s no way that exists right? Wrong! Ruby Cup does it all! Can you believe that if you buy it online they will ship to you anywhere in the WORLD for free!? It’s true. Now, can you also believe that with every purchase you make they also give a Ruby Cup to a girl in Kenya!
These girls in Kenya are amazing. We think we have problems and our periods are annoying. Well they have it much worse. Many of them have to use rags, bark, cloth, and anything else they have at hand, when they have their period, because they can’t afford to buy pads or tampons. They are ashamed to go to school and do not talk about it because it is taboo. Supplying Ruby Cups helps these girls immensely and solves the environmental problem of pads. Read the letter below from one girl.
I highly suggest you try a Ruby Cup yourself. I will never go back to pads, tampons or any other type of disposable solution. If you are not interested in trying a Ruby Cup yourself perhaps it would make a great gift for a family member. Once the initial purchase is made you save a lot of money in the long run on the other products you no longer buy. And your purchase helps such a good cause!
This post is my opinion only and I was not compensated for it. I was given a sample of the product to try. I adore it!
