There’s no question about it. Tampons and pads suck. Did you know that the average South African woman will spend about R40 000 on sanitary products over the course of her life?!

Did you know that that those things are not very environmentally friendly either?

Thankfully, there are other solutions for shark attack week. Enter the menstrual cup!

And we’re loving it. Because, just like Marie Claire says, ‘in the event of a zombie apocalypse, you’ll be sorted, while everyone else will have to battle the zombies to get to 7 Eleven and raid the world’s last remaining tampons.’

We totally recommend you read what else they have to say about the nifty little M-Cup!
