Review & Give-Away: The Keeper
As a cloth-diapering mama, I have to admit it feels a little strange (even hypocritical) to use eco-friendly products for my son yet purchase disposable hygiene products for myself. Since becoming a mother and learning about the toxins in disposable diapers, I began to wonder if some of the same things were being used in disposable feminine hygiene products. Short answer? Yes. After some more researching, I began to hear about natural rubber “menstral cups” from The Keeper.
The Keeper is a small natural gum rubber reusable cup worn internally. It can be worn 8-12 hours at a time and lasts up to 10 years! For those of us with latex sensitivities, The Keeper also offers The Moon Cup made of medical-grade silicone. Both products have been FDA-approved and are made in the USA.
My experience with The Moon Cup so far has been great! There is a bit of a learning curve when first learning to use the cup. After a bit of practice, though, it is just as easy as can be! I also appreciate how such a simple little object can can not only save me money and protect my health, but also keep many many disposable products from ending up in a land fill:
