We live in a time that praises efficiency. How many life hacks have you seen that teach us how to cut down on time or find short cuts? While this can be great for some things, it shouldn’t necessarily cross over into how you go about everything in your life.
I had never heard about the Mooncup, or any menstrual cup, until quite recently. At first, the thought completely grossed me out. Until I considered the methods I was already using, which were not only harmful to my body but to the environment as well. “On average, one woman will use over 11,000 tampons or pads in their lifetime, which will end up in landfill or in the sea.” Oh dear.
