Are you ready to take control of your period? All women, girls, and menstruating humans around the world deserve the right to education, menstrual hygiene, and a life without barriers from menstrual taboos and stigma. Join OrganiCup and celebrate our menstruating bodies by promoting Menstrual Hygiene Day!*


OrganiCup is the perfect menstrual cycle swap for EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH. Here are 9 amazing reasons you should switch to an OrganiCup for a Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, and Healthy Planet!



Healthy Body


1. Non-Toxic:

OrganiCups are made from 100% soft, medical-grade silicone. No BPA, latex or dyes. OrganiCup is also certified hypoallergenic. Heck-to-the-yes there won’t be any funky leaching chemicals!


2. Anti-Bacterial and Odor-Free:

Once you fold and insert your OrganiCup, it will unfold to form a light vacuum keeping it in place, so it won’t fall out! This vacuum seal ensures that your menstrual blood will not come into contact with air, making it hygienic and antibacterial, with no odor. No. Fishy. Business. Period.


3. No Dryness or Irritations:

Tampons absorb more than menstrual blood during your period; they also absorb other important vaginal secretions that keep you healthy. OrganiCup only collects, thus eliminating any irritation associated with dryness and ensures that the natural pH-balance is kept intact. Happy vagina dance, anyone?



Healthy Mind


4. No Leaks, No worries:

OrganiCup holds up to 3 tampons worth and can be worn for up to 12 hours. Don’t worry about your period during the day, or while you sleep at night. No more awkward moments where you need to run to the toilet to check if you’ve leaked through a pad or tampon. While running is good for your health, leaks can cause stress. No stress from leaks here!


5. No Financial Stress:

If financial worries keep you up at night, your menstrual cycle shouldn’t be part of the equation. With one OrganiCup, you’ll save loads of money by no longer purchasing pads and tampons on a monthly basis. No financial stress from your cycle means you’ll be feeling great! You can laugh all the way to the bank, and laughing is good for you.


6. Free to be You:

With an OrganiCup, you can be you all cycle long. Enjoy your regular, everyday activities without regular menstrual worries. Swim to your heart’s content. Don’t worry if you forget to pack tampons or pads, you won’t need them. Be as active as you please, wear whatever makes you feel great, and do anything you would do any other time of the month, stress free. Celebrate!



Healthy Planet


7. Zero Waste:

An average menstruating human will use ~11K pads or tampons during a lifetime. OrganiCup (which will last years, not hours), will result in 30 grams of waste instead of 30 kgs of waste once it reaches end-of-life. #ZeroWastePeriod


8. Less Resources Required:

All of the resources necessary to make, package, transport, and insert disposable menstrual products become irrelevant once you switch to an OrganiCup. Not only is there less waste, there are less resources required to make 1 OrganiCup compared to the hundreds of disposables you’ll need for the years of products you’d otherwise use. Hello sustainability!


9. Spread the Word to Save the Planet:

By spreading the word about OrganiCup, we’ll have an even more positive environmental impact when everyone else we know makes the switch too. Let’s choose to reuse, together!


Simple solution: Switch to an OrganiCup!
