One in 10 British women are unaware that the menopause is a naturally occurring event

Some British women are in denial when it comes to the menopause, according to results of a new survey. They are also failing to recognise the discreet early symptoms leading to a possible delay in seeking essential advice and treatment.
The survey reveals that a staggering one in 10 women are unaware that the menopause is a naturally occurring event affecting all women as they enter midlife. Of those, a surprising 70% thought that the menopause was genetic and almost 10% thought it occurred as a result of general ill health.

Brilliant online TV programme describes one woman's experience of the menstrual cup learning curve

The word "menstruation" is etymologically related to "moon"...

The words "menstruation" and "menses" come from the Latin for month -"mensis" - which in turn relates to the Greek word for moon - "mene", and to the roots of the English words month and moon.

EVERY DAY in the UK, 2.5 million tampons, 1.4 sanitary towels and 700,000 panty liners are flushed into our sewage system

This mind-blowing statistic, and many others, can be seen in context in the excellent Channel 4 programme 'The Human Footprint'

"Every year, in Britain alone, we would need to dig a hole 300 feet wide and 300 feet deep to bury the used sanitary pads and tampons that women throw away"

Corn-based plastic substitutes - new solution or new problem?

Research into the rapidly-growing 'bio-plastics' market reveals these new materials bring problems of their own. At the time this article was published, Mooncup Ltd was considering making new Mooncup containers out of bio-plastic. This article changed our minds.

The "Toxic Shock Syndrome Information Service" (TSSIS) is funded and supported by Johnson & Johnson GmbH, Kimberly-Clark Ltd., Lil-lets, Ontex Retail Ltd., Playtex Products Inc., Procter & Gamble UK and Toiletry Sales Ltd.


The UK sanitary protection market is worth in excess of £267 million.

As a Mooncup user, you can spend your money on something else!

Advertising sanitary protection on TV in the UK was forbidden until 1988.


There is six times more plastic than plankton in the Pacific Ocean


Tampons absorb 65% menstrual fluid and 35% natural moisture, creating imbalances in the moisture and pH levels of the vagina


Dioxin, produced during tampon manufacture, is the most toxic man-made substance known to science.

Rayon, one of the main ingredients in tampons, is highly absorbent and usually chlorine-bleached (one of the main dioxin-producing processes). Since 1918 it has been known that toxins can be absorbed into the body through the vagina.

Award-winning local artist Lou McCurdy first caught our eye at Mooncup with her exhibition “More Plastic than Plankton”.

Every piece of art that Lou exhibits is composed of plastic waste gathered along the Sussex coastline. Her work is beautiful and devastating in its permanence. Chloe Hanks, meanwhile, is a graphic designer and founder of Plastic Bag Free Brighton. In 2008, Mooncup worked together with Chloe and Lou to present a screening of the documentary Message In the Waves: a beautifully shot film about waste in the Hawaiian seas with a universal message.

So when we got the chance to work again with Lou and Chloe in 2009, we snapped it up. This time it would be to sponsor their “Dirty Beach” environmental art exhibition during the Brighton Fringe Festival.

Set in the busy Brighton North Laines, “Dirty Beach” would display Lou’s big colourful panels of plastic debris alongside photographs of Chloe’s eco-graffiti, which ranges from writing on the dirt of vans to making protest slogans in the snow. With our sponsorship, Dirty Beach was set up with the publicity materials, reusable Fairtrade organic cotton Dirty Beach bags, and tshirts it needed to make waves.

Is your period a luxury? We still pay VAT on sanitary products!

Women are obliged to pay VAT every time they buy sanitary protection. Although this was reduced to 5% in January 2001, when men's razors, nappies and the rate of VAT for sanitary protection products was lowered to a “reduced rate” of 5%, in line with EU restrictions.

Over 12 BILLION pads and tampons are USED ONCE and disposed of annually.

Iskustva korisnica

Mooncup je savršen izum!!Oduševila sam se!potpuno sam zaboravila da imam one dane-i lagan je za upotrebu..pruža savršenu zaštitu(u bazenu,tijekom vježbanja)..toplo preporucam!!!

Najrađe bi svima umjesto bok rekla mooncup! I ne znam kaj sam čekala sve ove godine!!!!!!!!! Fala kaj ste se odlučili na uvoz i olakšali nabavu!

Meni je drugi dan kako koristim Mooncup i što reći nego.... OBOŽAVAM SVOJU ČAŠICU I VIŠE NEMA POVRATKA NA STARO! :D

"Mooncup je za preporuku!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"Za menstrualne sam čašice čula davno, ali tek sam se tek u zadnje vrijeme odlučila jednu i isprobati. Odmah mi je bilo žao što to nisam ranije učinila! Korištenje je zaista jednostavno, uredno i spasonosno. Volim ekonomične stvari i ovo me definitivno spašava od četiri (!) vrste uložaka koje sam koristila do sada. Iskreno preporučam svakoj ženi da ga proba... vjerujem da se nikad neće vratiti ekološki neprihvatljivim i zdravstveno upitim oblicima menstrualnih proizvoda!"

"super da ga ima i u HR konačno....ja ga koristim već 4 godine...preporodila sam se...
toplo preporučam svim ženama...izum stoljeća što se mene tiče....:))))"

“Za mene je Mooncup najprirodnije, najjednostavnije, najčišće i najženstvenije rješenje za ženske dane u mjesecu.”

“Koristim Mooncup već dvije godine i svaki put kad dobijem menstruaciju veselim se što ga imam. Jednostavna, praktična, mekana i lijepa stvarčica uz koju menstruacija prođe bezbrižnije.”
