Better for you

Bettercup is super soft, supple, kind to your body and easy-to-use. Using a bettercup is the equivalent of around three regular tampons and it can be left in safely for up to 12 hours.

It's made from 100% medical grade silicone. It has absolutely no nasties. No dyes, BPA, latex, bleach or plastic. Just pure and simple. Tampons, on the other hand, are often made up of a mix of synthetic materials, cotton and plastics.

It collects your menstrual fluid rather than absorbing it. Which means no dryness, and none of your natural bodily fluids are absorbed unnecessarily. On the other hand, tampons work by absorbing your menstrual fluid which means they also absorb other essential bodily fluids as well, often leaving you feeling dry. 

Better for your purse

Let’s say the average individual menstruates from 15 years old to 45 years old. That’s 12 periods a year for 30 years. So around 360 periods across your life. And, with approximately 20 tampons per period, not to mention pads and liners, we can get through around 8000 disposable period products in our life. That’s a lot of trips to the supermarket; a lot of late night panics, realising your stash has run out. And, as we all know, a lot of expense when you’re forced, in desperation, to buy an overpriced box when nothing else is available.

On the other hand, one bettercup lasts you years and years! And, for a one-off price of £20, you need never be caught out again.

Better for the planet

So, we’ve already worked out that throughout your life you’ll get through thousands of tampons, all of which end up in landfill. If we were to think of the problem on a global scale, over 8000 disposed tampons per person, that’s a heck of a lot of sanitary waste sitting in landfill. Taking hundreds of years to decompose. And that’s just the tampons, not to mention the thousands of pads, pantyliners, packaging and applicator sticks.

Better for others

At bettercup we believe, and we’re sure you’ll agree, that sanitary care is not a privilege but a basic human right. People across our world are missing school and using unhygienic means to cope through their menstrual cycles. Our dream is to put a stop to an issue that -at its core- feels so simple. Half of the world’s population will have a period so why is menstruation not better funded and supported?

And that’s where you step in. For every bettercup sold, Bettercup give one to a person in need. Our first partnership is one particularly special to us, Hamara Hope School, a rural farm school in Zimbabwe. bettercup founder Ruth’s sister helped to start and now works at the school.
