It’s Plastic Free July, and we’re here to help you discover ways to make your period plastic free! Did you know that conventional pads are made from up to 90% plastic? The amount of plastic in some packs of pads are even equivalent to 4 bags of plastic. Up to 6% of tampons can be made from plastic, and plastic can even be found in the withdrawal cord! The impact of all of this plastic is devastating to the environment. We shared on our Instagram this week that over 8 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year which includes menstrual products. The Sheba Feminine product range is plastic free, making it not only a better alternative for the earth but also for your body.
Sheba Feminine ultra-soft menstrual cups:
Our ultra-soft menstrual cups are an excellent plastic free period solution! They can last up to TEN years with proper care and require very little maintenance. Can you imagine not having to spend money on menstrual products for an entire DECADE?! This isn’t only great for the environment, but it will also save you money in the long run. Plus, our cups are made from the softest, premium, medical-grade silicone. It’s so comfortable you could easily forget that it’s inserted!
Our ultra-soft cups come in two sizes; the Oshun Blue cup is 15ml – 20ml (Size A) and the Kitaka Coral cup is 30ml – 35ml (Size B). They’re free from ALL toxins or chemicals, including parabens, bleaches, latex or phthalates. We have an entire page dedicated to our ultra-soft menstrual cups on our website, as well as common FAQs, and a range of blog posts discussing everything you need to know about using our ultra-soft cups!
