As Mooncup becomes the first reusable feminine hygiene product to be offered free of charge in schools, the company is celebrating being rated the most ethical female care company.
The leading ethical comparison site, thegoodshoppingguide.com, has released its latest, independent research and Brighton-based Mooncup tops the charts. The other two feminine care companies getting top marks from The Good Shopping Guide are Natracare and TOTM.
Eileen Greene, Company Director, commented: “The Good Shopping Guide’s latest rating reflects our business’ real commitment to ethical values. From day one, Mooncup had one aim: to make the experience of periods more positive, healthy and eco-friendly.”
The news comes after it was announced that the Mooncup menstrual cup is now being made available free of charge to pupils of all state schools and colleges in England as a part of a new Department for Education scheme. It is the first time that environmentally friendly and plastic free products are being offered as a free option in schools in England, alongside traditional disposable pads and tampons.
Kath Clements, Company Director, added: “We are excited to be working with phs and the Department for Education to provide sustainable period products to young people across England. Based on our experience of working with the sexual health and wellbeing charity, Brook, we know that young people find the cost-effectiveness of menstrual cups particularly appealing, as well as their convenience and low environmental impact.”
