A Diva for Mother's Day! ~ GIVEAWAY!!

There's lots of talk lately about generating less landfill waste. Reusable bags, cloth diapers, recycling, upcycling...But have you ever stopped to think about the disposable waste that is generated by women each month as they go through menstruation? It's incredible! According to some sources, “an estimated 12 billion sanitary pads and 7 billion tampons are dumped into the North American environment each year.” Amazing!

One reusable option I recently heard about is The DivaCup! It's a menstrual cup made from healthcare-grade silicone and can be used many times (it's recommended to replace it once yearly as it is a personal hygiene item).

The idea of a menstrual cup is not a new one – it was first thought of in the 1930's. For many reasons, the idea didn't continue; in recent history Diva International, a mother and daughter company as relaunched the concept with many significant improvements. The redesigned DivaCup is proving to be a great success and appreciated by the many women who've tried it.

The DivaCup is sanitary and easy to clean – it comes with detailed instructions for use and care. As well, the website contains a great deal of information – it's worth a visit to find out more about this great alternative to more commonly used menstrual products.  It's great for active lifestyles and practical when travelling or out and about. Women don't have to carry extra supplies “just in case” -  using The DivaCup involves simply emptying and washing at least twice every 24 hours. As well as being environmentally friendly, it's also an economical choice.

The DivaCup is approved for market by Health Canada and the US FDA. As well, the company holds ISO 13485:2003 manufacturing certification.

The DivaCup is available at many locations – check the store finder on the website to find a retailer near you.

WIN IT!!

One lucky reader will win a DivaCup! Visit The DivaCup website and comment on something you learned.

EXTRA ENTRIES - Please leave an additional comment for each extra entry.


CONTEST OPEN TO CANADA AND USA! Contest ends on May 21, 2010. Please view our giveaway rules for more info.

This is a weird coincidence. I was just at a Health Store with my daughter and she said "Look, this is what I want to try"- it was the diva cup!
I learned that because you can wear The DivaCup longer than tampons or pads, you have the convenience of not having to think about your period all day long!
I really think she would love testing this out

I heard about the diva cup many years ago and always wanted to give it a try but i was hesitant. None of my friends had tried it and I didn't want to be the first but after reading more about it and finding out it can be used for all activities and overnight, I might just give it a try!
