Did you know that the average menstruating person will use and throw away up to 14,000 tampons in a lifetime, leaving around 300 pounds of waste sitting in landfills and oceans per person. But who wants to be average?

This statistic may get you down, but if you want some instant gratification, making the switch to a menstrual cup is an exciting and rewarding way to immediately reduce your impact on the environment.

If you’re like us and want to be a more conscious consumer, here are three reasons why choosing a Kind Cup is a no-brainer!

  1. We Are 100% Plastic Free!
    We all know how terrible plastics and microplastics are for the planet. Since day one, we made it our mission to have no part in contributing to the growing plastic waste crisis. From our medical grade silicone cup to our sustainably sourced cardboard packaging, we made the choice to be 100% plastic free in every step of our manufacturing, packaging and shipping process. That means we aren’t passing the burden onto you to figure out how to properly dispose of your plastic waste because there isn’t any to begin with!

  2. Low Carbon Footprint
    Not only is our packaging plastic free, but our entire materials sourcing, manufacturing and production happens within a two-hour driving radius of our headquarters, keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum.

  3. Our Menstrual Cup Supports The Health Of Your Body And The Planet
    We put incredible care into selecting the highest quality, 100% medical grade, silky and super comfortable silicone. No questionable fillers, or unlisted toxic materials - we only use the best. You can reuse our quality cup for up to ten years, saving you hundreds of dollars and keeping thousands of single-use products from ending up in landfills and waterways. That’s a win for you and the environment!

If you want an easy way to start or continue your journey into the world of sustainability, support plastic free products designed and made locally by making the switch to Kind Cup today!

Microplastics are contaminating numerous food sources from the seafood we eat to the water we drink. And we, humans, are ingesting the equivalent of one credit card of plastic a week!

But there's hope. If Kind Cup, a small, bootstrapped startup can make the commitment to being plastic free, then larger companies can ditch plastics for good.
