Hate throwing away money on disposable items. Ladies how much do you spend a month on tampons and pads? I started my periods at 12, so for the last 19 years, I have spent a staggering $4,560 Aussie dollars on flushing things down the toilet.
What a waste of money and resources!
Never one to pose a question without offering a variety of solutions, I found an answer to a universal problem, Miacup. This little wonder product can be used for years and because your initial outlay is a once-off payment – AU $54.44 ( With every Miacup sold, Miacup will automatically donate AUD 0.69 to Food & Trees for Africa ) so you don’t have to run off to the shops every month to stock up.!!!!!!
An added bonus, there are no harmful chemicals, no fluff, plastic or wrapping to cause damage to your body, eliminating the chance of TSS, fungal infections and general bad ingredients finding their way into your very private places.
