Periods are cool. We think it's time to end shame and stigma around such a normal bodily function and to start acting like people who understand that periods are a part of life. Period.

What the
cup is this?

This could be your period's new best friend - if you're ready for it. We know periods are messy and painful and let's be honest, completely personal. We also believe that there is no wrong way to menstruate. But we just learned about the cup which is an amazing alternative to tampons and pads and we think that if you want a change, then read on and we'll tell you why this little silicone thing could be your period's new best friend - if you're ready for it.'

Already feel like ‘hey, this is something I definitely want to try’?
No problem, we’ve got you covered.

Eco friendly

So the thing about pads and tampons is that they actually generate a lot of waste. The cup is made of medical silicone, it lasts up to 10 years and when you're done, you burn it. Toxic emission free.

Great for sports

Just because you’re on your period doesn’t mean you want to stop your exercise routine, right? Well, whether you're running, swimming, yoga-ing or dancing, the cup will stay put. Worry free exercise.

Economical

It might seem like a lot of money at first. And it doesn't feel so great to have to pay for having a period, but this is a once every 10 years payment. Kind of worth it in our eyes.

Long lasting

Of course this is personal but in general, you can wear the cup for up to 12 hours. That's only twice a day. Which is amazing in our eyes.

Invisible

No more strings, no more pads. The cup is invisible and so comfortable you might find yourself forgetting it’s there.

Kind

The cup isn't just kind on the environment and on your wallet. It's also kind on your vagina.

Made of 100% medical grade silicone, it’s free from chemicals and contains NO harmful absorbency gels, additives, toxins, pesticides, bleaches or perfumes.

The Cup

Our belief is that the more people who know about the cup and hopefully use it, the easier it will be for us/you to help millions of girls in need. As the cup market grows it will free money for the cup users and it will hopefully make cups cheaper and the companies selling them will be able to be more generous and help our cause. We have already seen great results with the over 5000 girls we've trained in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. The girls who have gone through the specially designed Cup program and who have chosen to start using the cup have not missed a day of school since, feel healthier, can participate in sports, be allowed to play, and feel free.

Three women.
Three personal period stories.

For the launch of this collaboration we teamed up with director Arvida Byström to create three short films featuring three women who share their honest and personal stories about using the cup. Featured in the films are musician and activist Madame Gandhi, activist and model Juliet Atto and author and blogger Flora Wiström.

Madame Gandhi, who participated in Monki’s Monkifesto campaign last year, returns and talks about the importance of how no one should ever be ashamed of their period.

Juliet Atto is a first-time menstrual cup user. Her story focuses on the questions that arise when using a menstrual cup for the first time.

Flora Wiström, also known from the Monkifesto campaign, is an avid menstrual cup user and shares her experience with the cup as well as one of her period mishaps.
