small natural rubber menstrual cup

It’s plastic-free, period. These cups are made from a soft, Fair Trade, FSC certified natural rubber*, making them a hygienic and environmentally friendly sanitary product you can have confidence in. These cups are vegan and made from a natural, Fair Trade environmentally friendly material, and they do not contain plastic or silicone and are also free from nasties like BPA, PVC, or phthalates.


Menstrual cups collect the blood rather than absorbs it, so a cup can hold up to three times the amount of a regular tampon, meaning less faff – you don’t need to remember to carry spare tampons or pads anymore! These cups are reusable and are cleaned just using water - a low-maintenance solution for your monthlies. 




  • ‘Size S holds 8 ml, is 6.1 cm high and 3.8 cm in diameter. Recommended as suitable for women who have very easy bleeding.
  • Size M holds 13 ml, is 6.65 cm high and 4.1 cm in diameter. Recommended as suitable for women who have not given birth and are under 30 years old.

Full instructions for use are included with each period cup, along with an organic Fairtrade cotton bag for storage when not in use. Please remember to disinfect the cup by placing it in boiling water for 10 minutes before using it for the first time.


*not suitable for those allergic to latex.

  • Single-use tampons and pads – which come individually wrapped in plastic and are made of a combination of plastic and cotton. In the case of tampons, there are also plastic applicators for some of these as well. It’s understandable why plastic was felt to be a good choice for sanitary items, plastic is, after all, waterproof, which helps with containing accidental spills… but having a monthly flow that typically lasts up to a week, during which time you need to use multiple of these single-use absorbers, means that a lot of plastic waste is created. Unfortunately, lack of education in how to dispose of these items has also led many to believe that you can just flush them down the loo, which is not at all true! This harmful myth has led to a rise of used sanitary items being found washed up on beaches. Having done quite a few beach litter picks, I’ve seen this in person, and it is one of the grossest bits of litter you’ll find. These items contribute to causing blockages in the sewer system which can lead to sewage overflow into rivers and onto beaches… it’s grim and not at all uncommon.

    This cup is also an alternative to period cups made of silicone for those who prefer to avoid it.
