GladRags Introduces the Moon Cup - An Environmentally-Sound and Safe Alternative to Disposable Feminine Hygiene Products!
Date:9/11/2007

PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- GladRags, a leading manufacturer of alternative menstrual products, is pleased to announce the Moon Cup. The Moon Cup is a tampon alternative made from medical-grade silicone that is designed to "catch" the menstrual flow rather than absorbing it. Worn internally similar to a tampon, the Moon Cup offers safety from unwanted chemicals and plastics, and provides inexpensive protection and a healthy, environmentally-friendly choice. Soft and durable, the product should last for 10 years before needing replacement and can save a woman as much as $800 over the lifetime of the cup. The Moon Cup is made in the U.S.

It is estimated that a woman will use as many as 16,000 tampons over the course of her life. A 1998 study concluded that 6.5 billion tampons and 13.5 billion sanitary pads were disposed of in one year's time. These products, often laden with chemicals such as dioxins, end up in landfills and sewer systems, sometimes even washing up on U.S. coastlines. "Given that the EPA has indicated that there is no safe level for dioxin exposure, we have found ourselves at a crossroads -- an emphatic call to make a wiser choice that supports individual health and the health of the environment," says Brenda Mallory, Founder and President of GladRags.

Moon Cups are available in two sizes and are easy to pack and care for. The product is ideal for active women involved in sports and travel, women with sensitivities to tampons or disposable pads and women who desire comfort and ease during their periods. Adds Brenda, "Women often tend to have negative feelings about their cycles and we believe these healthy, easy-to-use, sustainable products help empower women against those negative attitudes." The Moon Cup joins the Keeper, a similar device made of rubber that is also distributed by GladRags, and rounds out the product line giving consumers greater variety in menstrual cups.
