Today we're talking PERIODS 👯‍♀️👊🏼 So when you first think about low impact, eco-friendly living we're guessing that menstruation isn't the first topic that comes to mind 🤔 Especially if you only come to Live Zero for the food! 🥑 Don't worry we get you - talking about periods can be uncomfortable, especially when they're still a huge taboo in many countries. But we're here to help debunk the shame surrounding periods, and empower people to have a healthier, WASTE FREE period 💞

Menstrual cups (we stock the @mooncupltd), are used just like regular tampons. Except they're designed to last for years 🙏🏼 Made from soft, medical-grade silicone they hold up to 3x more than a regular tampon and can be worn for up to 8 hours. Here's why we love them:

1) Globally, 45 billion feminine hygiene products are disposed of every year 😱 Sanitary pads are also 90% plastic 😥 This is a HUGE amount of waste ending up in landfills and oceans. With a reusable cup you can stop buying disposables! #sustainable
2) Single use feminine hygiene products contain loads of nasty chemicals harmful to YOU and the PLANET (e.g  non biodegradable plastics, polyethylene, pesticide residue) 😳The moon cup doesn't.
3) Menstrual cups are COST EFFECTIVE. While the initial HK$280 may seem like a lot of money, the moon cup actually costs the same as you would spend on disposables in 3-6 months. You save money in the long
run 💰💰
4) Awesome for people with sensitive skin: latex free, BPA free, hypoallergenic, no dyes, no perfumes, no phthalates, no bleach and won't leave fibers behind when you've removed it 🦋🌿
5) Super convenient. Can be worn all day and there's no need to dash to the shops when you're caught off guard!

If you're uncomfortable with the idea of menstrual cups we also stock period pants 👙 @modibodiaustralia They can be worn day or night, and the specialist fabric
will absorb your period. We promise they're mega comfortable!
Saving the planet is all about taking #littlegreensteps and making convenient changes in your habits ✅ So we're totally championing a WASTE FREE PERIOD with menstrual cups or reusable pants! 🌸 Let us know if you’ve made the switch!

For me when I started on this journey, I wanted to tackle three key areas that affected me personally.

1. Safe to use
2. Shape
3. Colour

Safe for my body was so important and why my mooncups are FDA approved and made from medical grade silicone. Being ex-ambulance safety for my body has always been an element on the high priority list. ✅

The shape was also very important to me, personally, I've had lots of surgery's in that area and a prolapsed cervix to add to the mix, which generally means that products can possibly cause discomfort and pain, so I set out to make a difference in that area, I figured if it could solve my problem, then it'll cover off 99% of other women's problems. ✅

Colour came third, but still an important element, I wanted to wear colour on the inside, bringing out the "rebel" in me. I also know that the thought of blood can affect people and be a barrier, which is why I made sure I had a red colour offering, it tricks the mind, I've dealt with many patients and blood, so I covered that off too!

For me my mooncup had to tackle these three areas and it is my point of difference.
If you're thinking about trying one they're currently $24 🌸👑 Join the revolution and wear colour on the inside!! 🦋

Moon cups and raising awareness about period poverty has always been an important issue to me but one I have only recently felt confident enough to speak out about. Cheers to my amazing friend @alydelahanmeade for making this t-shirt to support the cause. Do as it says on the T-shirt and ask me about my mooncup! Shotout to @homelessperiodireland for all the amazing work they are doing around this country, watch out for things happening in Sligo. #mooncup #periodpoverty #homelessperiodireland

After my PPD allergy I developed multiple chemical sensitivity , just before I got diagnosed with breast cancer - it's been a hell of a year - anyway I became allergic to all my normal sanitary products and had to improvise quickly . At first tbh I felt like a freak . Thank fuck my body reacted in this way tho! Toxic chemicals are everywhere & the companies that put them there , in our cosmetics , food, sanitary products , cleaning products and so on , they KNOW what they are doing . Please please always think about how things are made , make smart choices , choose the least TOXIC option . Ladies scroll 👉 these options are NOT weird, awkward , unclean ~ they might save your life and are eco friendly at the same time . Win fucking WIN ✨💚✨

Vil du slutte med sløsing, ubehag og utgifter til sanitærprodukter til engangsbruk?

Én kvinne bruker minst 11 000 tamponger eller bind i løpet av livet, som ender opp i søppelfyllinger eller i havet!
Mooncup er den originale, myke menskoppen i medisinsk grad silikon, utformet av kvinner som det enkleste, mest lettvinte og øko-vennlige alternativet til tamponger og bind🙌🏼 #mooncup #menskopp #miljøvennlig

Studies have shown that Children as young as 10 are choosing to stay at home to avoid the embarrassment of bleeding on their school uniform in front of their peers, because they weren’t adequately protected. They miss school every month because they cannot face the shame and fear of going to school using socks stuffed with tissues, old torn T-shirts or newspaper. In these families, menstrual products are an unattainable luxury.

話說自己一開始係勁抗拒用月經杯😂都用左幾十年M巾啦 好似習慣左有塊片係到!加上覺得月經杯咁鬼大舊塞入陰道一定會好唔舒服😅😅(俾勁多借口自己唔願去試)
.
🤨到差唔多年幾前終於都接觸左我人生第一個月經杯 揀左英國比較出名又耐歷史既品牌 MOONCUP,係英國拎過好多獎項同埋認證!
.
用左大半年啦 好想分享比大家😄唔好睇佢成隻膠 大大舊 其實質感都幾舒服 放完入去完全唔覺塞左野入去😁有好幾次都差啲唔記得自己原來黎緊M😂又唔影響你大小便便 !真係點郁都唔洗怕漏 仲可以KEEP到4 - 8個鐘頭!!
💁🏻‍♀️有左佢 以後黎M都可以照去游水浸温泉做運動跳舞啦🤟🏽😎 👯‍♀️
.
除左用得舒服左清爽左! 月經杯都會保護返你既陰道💕
.
💁🏻‍♀️是關M巾會吸收左你陰道水份,令你變得乾同埋留低左啲纖維!棉條就更加唔洗講 仲多唔好處!而月經杯係用醫用級既矽膠制成 完全唔會吸水唔會令你變乾燥又可以用到好多好多年 除左慳返啲錢之外仲幫地球🌍減少好多好多廢物🙇🏻‍♀️可以種到好多樹🌱

(From last Sunday)
🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹 Another moon cycle, after chance to reconnect to the earth once again.
.
.
I was told a prophecy earlier this year that I didn’t quite connect with but finally do. It says “when all women give their blood back to earth, the earth will know peace”. It took a while to sink in: the earth has received so much blood via war, hunting, death, tragedy, sacrifice and harm. We’re sensitised and normalised to this - we see blood and gore in films every day yet it took foreveeeeeer to blood to be featured in adverts for menstrual products. The most natural form of releasing blood that causes no harm to another person, plant or the environment has been so demonised that we think giving our blood back to the earth is weird, wrong and even disgusting. .
.
It’s completely natural and is great for the earth. All of the nutrients that would have gone into forming a precious human life goes into nourishing plants. There is literally life in our blood. We are the creators. And when we see this power and get back to tuning in with nature and her cycles the prophecy may well be fulfilled. I did this blood ritual last month using my mooncup but was inspired by @wombtowater this time round to soak my reusable pad in water to feed my plants. And it worked at treat! It’s easy to do, no mess and good for those who aren’t a fan of mooncups. .
.
Thanks to @wombtowater for sharing your way of doing this and helping me to feel empowered in different ways to connect to such a sacred cycle.

I was excited to receive my moon cup today. I found it hard to know which company to go with but I found @theqc.nz who are based in NZ and I am very happy with my choice. They come in many beautiful colours, are obviously a great option for the environment, non toxic for the bod, a good price and my favourite part... for every cup that is sold, another cup is donated to the women’s refuge 🙌🏼💕

My stuff from @littlegreenshop_ie came today 😄
✨organic cotton reusable/washable makeup remover pads
✨bentonite clay
✨mooncup
✨bamboo plastic free toothbrush
Also they packaging it all comes in is 100% conpostable 👍🏼
I really recommend everyone check this shop out, they’re Irish & really affordable which is great! They have loads of home, cosmetics, bath, children, stationary products & lots more!
This is my second time ordering from them & I will be again 😄

Reducing single use plastic in our day to day lives can be a real challenge. We started off doing it room by room. The bathroom is one of the most surprisingly plastic filled rooms. We have been slowly building up our stock of plastic free bathroom products and with the addition of our new bamboo cotton buds and plastic free dental floss, we think we are pretty much there now 😁. If you're out and about visiting Green man, why not pop in and stock up 👍

Is there anything you think we are missing? Let us know 😊

@bosslikeamum shares her top tips on how to reduce your plastic footprint over on her blog (link in her bio) #mooncup #ditchthedisposables #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #menstrualcup #plasticfree

I bought a Mooncup!
It’s part of a drive to reduce my plastic footprint - did you know that most tampons, applicators & pads contain plastic? (new blog post on plastic reduction - link in bio)
Anyone else use one?
