Dealing with your monthly cycle can be, well, a bit of a drag. Not only do tampons and pads increase our environmental footprint, but they serve as an added monthly expense, and can contain irritating chemicals and artificial fragrances. It’s no surprise that the need for an alternative menstrual care product is high. Enter, DivaCup! Not only is this genius and empowering invention cost effective, clean, and compact, but it empowers women to spend less time making trips to the bathroom and worrying about their cycle, and more time doing the things they love. Want to hear more? Here’s why we’re officially DivaCup devotees.
The History of DivaCup
DivaCup President and Co-Founder Francine Chambers saw a need in the feminine hygiene space for a product that help women feel less restrained by their monthly cycles. After 10 years of promoting alternative feminine care options, Chambers teamed up with her daughter, Carinne, to create a reusable menstrual cup that promoted a more positive period experience.

Benefits of Using a Menstrual Cup
If tampons or pads aren’t working for you, a menstrual cup might be the ideal solution. Here are some benefits you can expect:
- Reduced costs: Instead of spending money on tampons and pads each month, a menstrual cup can be used multiple times (provided you clean it and store it properly) saving you money throughout the year.
- Environmentally responsible: Thanks to reuse, you are effectively reducing the amount of waste you produce with every cycle.
- More you time: A menstrual cup should be emptied and washed every 12 hours, which gives you more time between changes than tampons or pads.
