Unfolding a #NewPeriod
Consider disposable period products for a minute – the waste they amount to each month, the chemicals they often contain that we put inside our bodies and the young people who stay away from school because they don’t have access to them.
We’re on a journey to change the way periods affect our lives, our bodies and our environment.
Unlike disposable period products, our menstrual cup (formerly OrganiCup) and period underwear are reusable for years and have a minimal impact on the environment compared to pads and tampons.
2 years of period products:
Sustainable period care is…
No harmful substances – doesn’t mess with your body.
Lasts years, not hours – no constant waste and no monthly purchases.
No leaks, no worries – can be worn for hours.
How to use a cup
The soft AllMatters cup unfolds to form a light suction seal, keeping it safely in place.
When placed correctly you shouldn’t feel the cup. Go swim, do sports and forget all about your period.
Even public toilets are no challenge – just use toilet paper and rinse when you’re back home.
All materials used in our products are chosen based on their sustainability and recyclability.
The cup’s storage bag is made of unbleached organic cotton – a material that promotes water conservation, cleaner air, better soil and farmer livelihoods.
Our cup is made of medical-grade silicone, which is derived from quartz, a type of sand – the second most abundant mineral in Earth’s crust. We don’t offer colored cups, thereby avoiding the use of color additives.
Our period underwear is mainly made of wood-based fibers, TENCEL™ Lyocell and VEOCEL™ Specialty Viscose, manufactured at Lenzing; an Austrian textile manufacturer known for their unique closed-loop control process that limits its impact on the environment.
