At The Hempton, we are always on the look out for vegan, sustainable and ethical products that benefit womxn’s health and lifestyle choices. Mooncup® is one of those products. It is an effective and comfortable sanitary option, the eco considerations and benefits of Mooncup need to be talked about. 

It is estimated that womxn have approximately 500 periods during a lifetime. That is 6.5 years we spend menstruating, using an average of 11,000 disposable period products, many of which end up in landfills or worse – in our oceans.

Mooncup is an eco-innovation, not only are you reducing landfill waste, one period at a time, but you are also supporting a not-for-profit organisation that works with numerous charities worldwide. To be clear, The Hempton does not make any profit from Mooncup. We simply want to do our bit, and help to get these menstrual cups to you.

You’ve probably heard that switching to the Mooncup® saves you money.  Women are expected to spend an around £66 per year on period products, up until the age of 51, the average age of menopause in the UK. Regardless of your flow, you only need one Mooncup, which will last you years. While tampons can cause dryness and leave fibres behind, the Mooncup respects your natural balance. Whilst holding 3 x more than a regular tampon, it gives you longer lasting protection on heavier days. It’s non-absorbent, so does not cause dryness when your period is light
