Dubai, United Arab Emirates - October 08, 2019:    The average woman will use between 10,000 and 15,000 pads or tampons in her lifetime, and it’s no surprise that the number of menstrual products ending up in landfills every year add up to billions. Pads contain polyethylene plastic, and most tampons contain chemicals like chlorine, dioxin, and rayon. These harmful pollutants are released into the air and groundwater. Furthermore, it takes most period products centuries to decompose. 

While real environmental change will happen on the production end of the period industry, consumers can force this change by making economic decisions that value the environment. One such decision is switching to the cup! 

Menstrual cups are silicone bell-shaped cups that collect menstrual fluid by insertion. They do not leak, require minimal changing, and can be worn overnight. If taken care of well, a menstrual cup can last a decade. Menstrual cups do not contain any of the chemicals typically found in commercial grade tampons and pads, and they are silicone. Silicone is made from silica, a type of sand, the second most abundant mineral on the Earth. When silicone degrades, it returns to its former state as silica. 

Lunette, a female-led global menstrual cup company offers the future of feminine protection. Easy and safe to use, the new vegan menstrual cup is made of soft, toxin-free medical-grade silicone. Each cup can last up to 12 hours. Perfect for the body and the environment, one Lunette cup can eliminate up to six hundred tampons (two years-worth of period products) from the environment. 

Lunette’s packaging is also fully recyclable, including the ‘window’ on the cup box, which is made from vegetable cellulose. The Lunette Menstrual Cup lasts at least two years with proper care and can be burned to ash when it’s to be replaced.  

Lunette Menstrual Cup retails at AED 157.5 and comes in a vibrant violet color and two sizes. It is available for purchase at Boots, Spinney’s and United Pharmacy stores and online on Sprii.com and Amazon.com.
