Menstrual Cup Coalition

MannionDaniels is proud to be a member of the Menstrual Cup Coalition, and also provides the coalition with pro-bono support to promote their work. Over 300 million women menstruate every day. Single-use period products are the fifth largest source of plastic on beaches. They take over 500 years to decompose; block sewers; fill landfills; pollute oceans; and create air pollution if burned. In comparison, the environmental impact of a reusable menstrual cup is less than 1.5% of the impact of tampons or towels. We believe in providing women with choice, and menstrual cups are the most environmentally sound option available. Women switching to menstrual cups consume 16 times less carbon, saving 7kg of CO2 emissions each year.
