Mooncup: The Story So Far...

 

Spring 2000 - Su Hardy discovers a menstrual cup on her travels

On her return from backpacking with her one-year old daughter around Australia, Su Hardy imports a latex menstrual cup. Sales soon show that women in Britain are ready for an eco-friendly, money-saving sanitary product. However, latex allergies are reported and following research, Su comes up with medical grade silicone as a hypoallergenic alternative

Spring 2005 - Mooncup information materials translated into 12 languages

As the Mooncup becomes available in more and more countries around the world, Mooncup Ltd. responds by introducing its Usage Guide, leaflets and posters in eleven languages

Winter 2005 - Mooncup Ltd. at the forefront of research and education about menstrual health

Nurse Advisor Cathy Marchand brings 25 years of nursing experience to Mooncup Ltd. Cathy provides advice to Mooncup users via the email and telephone advice line, and works with School, Travel and Practice Nurses to raise awareness of menstrual health issues

Winter 2006 – Mooncup goes to Nepal

Harvard researchers approach Mooncup Ltd requesting support.

Spring 2008- Mooncup support women’s rowing challenge to cross the Atlantic

They succeed after 74 days in extreme conditions with the Mooncup as sanitary protection!

Extreme rower, Margaret Bowling, raves about the Mooncup on her return:

“ It was a complete life saver. We had a few times where we were confined to the cabin due to severe conditions - not the time to be nipping outside to change your tampon every few hours - and in those instances it was particularly fantastic. Storing tampons on a soggy boat was also an issue that I'm glad I didn't have to deal with. So it was a perfect solution and is now a permanent fixture in my bathroom kit when at home and on expeditions.”

Spring 2008 - Upsurge in Mooncup popularity in Italy

Escalating rubbish in Naples makes waste a national talking point in Italy. Italian mayor Floriana Casellato encourages resident women to use the Mooncup and notorious political commentator and comedian Beppe Grillo passionately cites Mooncup as a solution on national television

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!!!
(Ana)

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!
(Martina)


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


"Mooncup je za preporuku!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
(Ivana)

"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!"
(Srebrenka)

"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....:))))"
(Orieta)

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

“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.”
(Renata)
