Reusable menstrual products are something that I am very interested in and passionate about. Disposable products like panty liners and tampons are actually terrible for the environment! These items take forever to decompose and just add unnecessary waste to our landfills. On top of being bad for the environment, a lot of these disposable products aren’t great for the consumer! There are chemicals and dyes in these items that should not be inside our bodies! Still need another reason to switch after these points? These products are expensive! The amount of money that the average woman will spend in her lifetime on disposable menstrual products is absolutely staggering.
Enter in the Oi Cup! Oi stands for Organic Initiative and this company is passionate about it! Oi strives to remove plastics, synthetics, toxins, and chemicals from hygiene products. Their menstrual cup comes in 4 different sizes and the website very clearly explains who should be using which size. Sizing is one of the biggest hurdles to overcome when making the switch to a menstrual cup so this is very helpful!
Oi cups can be used for up to 12 hours and can hold so much more liquid than the average pad and tampon! Making that time of the month easier and less stressful is important to everyone. The Oi Cup comes with a little pouch for storage. Once you are done with the cup and ready to clean it, you can either use a cup wash or sanitize it by boiling it in a pot of water. Once clean, simply put it in the pouch and forget about it until next month! Once you have adjusted to the change from tampons to the Oi Cup, you will find that it is actually more comfortable and often times you won’t even notice that it is in place! The cup is made of a high quality and completely safe pink silicone and you should feel completely confident and comfortable using it!
