OrganiCup believe access to safe and hygienic period products should be a basic human right and are on a mission to provide a sustainable and scalable solution to end period poverty. Together with partner NGOs both in developing and developed countries, OrganiCup aim to ensure those in need receive proper education about menstrual health and have access to period products.
There are now more and more period cups on the market, but not to the same high standard as OrganiCup. With their strong environmental conscience there is strictly no plastic in the product and it’s packaging (for transport included). OrganiCup has considerably less packaging than other period cups. Packaged in recyclable carton all instructions are printed directly onto the packaging to prevent additional waste. The packaging is minimised in size to reduce emissions from transportation. The cotton storage bag is made from unbleached organic cotton.
The OrganiCup is currently produced in: Germany, using medical-grade silicone made in Germany and China, using medical-grade silicone made in USA.
OrganiCup is made at top-grade facilities that are audited to make sure they meet quality and CSR requirements.
We can clearly trace the process of manufacturing and the sourcing of raw materials. Eco Workshop would love to see some improvement in the carbon footprint, but also understand great attention to every detail has been made to minimise emissions where possible
Organicup period cups are made from naturally derived silicone and contain no harmful chemicals or dyes.
