Menstrual cups are a sustainable alternative to disposable period products. They are typically bell-shaped, made of medical-grade silicone and placed in the vaginal canal. They can be reused for over a year, worn for 12 hours at a time and save you over a hundred dollars a year. There are dozens of options, and choosing the right one for you can be difficult. However, our cup, that will launch in 2021, is the most innovative, user-friendly option.
On average orders can take about 2 weeks. This varies depending on our supplier’s demand for fulfilling orders. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

As of May 2021, we’ve started using packaging made of post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics. PCR plastics are made from items people recycle every day, like plastic bags and bottles. Most of our PCR plastics are made from shopping bags and wrapping films.
ORDERS & PAYMENTS
We have partnered with Period.org in order to use 20% of proceeds from End Period Poverty merch to give period products to those in need”

For some, having access to affordable period products isn’t an issue. However, many menstruators across the globe, including the United States, don’t have that privilege. 1 in 5 American girls have either missed school or left school early due to lack of access to products (Abiodiun, 2020). Unfortunately, this reality is common for all menstruators regardless of their gender identity. This statistic is even higher in some countries across the globe, creating an even wider gap between boys and girls in education. It’s not just young menstruators in schools who are plagued with period poverty, it is some people experiencing homelessness, living in remote areas, in prisons and living in poverty.
The taxation of “nonessential goods” including tampons, menstrual pads and other menstrual care products is what is known as the “Tampon Tax.” The tax is an unfair, unjust economic burden for menstruators who already have to pay for menstrual necessities every month. Viagra, BBQ sunflower seeds, doughnuts, ammunition, guns, and other items aren’t taxed in some states that still tax tampons. This tax has been present in all states in the US until 2019. Today, this tax is still present in 30 states, including Indiana (where we are headquartered). Want to help end the tampon tax? Join the Tampon Tax Protest here.
