We are not able to send free samples. Menstrual cups and cloth pads are reusable products that last for many years and the manufacture cost of these products is considerably more than that of disposable tampons and pads. The lifespan and production cost of making reusable sanitary products makes it prohibitive to send out free samples.
Yes, JuJu is vegan. JuJu Cup is made from 100% medical grade silicone and has no additives or colours.
The silicone used in the manufacture of JuJu Cup does not contain any parts of animals or insects or by-products.
I have some tampons and pads I no longer need since switching to a cup. What should I do with them?
We donate cups to numerous charitable causes and also collect tampons and pads to donate to organisations and community groups who help disadvantaged and homeless people. Rather than dispose of your unwanted disposable tampons or pads you can send the to us at;
PO Box 6200
For hygiene reasons we can only donate products which are individually wrapped (i.e. they can be un-boxed or out of the outer packaging but the individual tampon or pad packaging must be unopened).
If you compare the low-impact mining of mineral sands which are used in the manufacture of silicone, to the production of cotton, which requires copious amounts of water, soil and pesticides, it is clear that using silicone based products substantially reduces our carbon footprint.
A study commissioned by the Global Silicones Council examined the sustainability of silicone based products and the findings indicated using silicone products, generated less greenhouse-gas emissions by enabling energy saving technologies and a more efficient use of energy and materials. Silicone based products are more efficient, perform better and last longer than non-silicone based products, resulting in a reduction the carbon footprint of silicone products.
This study was commissioned by the Global Silicones Council and independently reviewed by a Professor at University of Manchester in the UK who is considered to be an expert in sustainable chemical engineering.
Menstrual cups will deteriorate over time. The lifespan of a menstrual cup varies from person to person.
It is time to replace your menstrual cup if it;
If it is time to replace your cup or you no longer wish to use a cup please wash your cup with soap, cut you into a few smaller pieces and dispose of it in the rubbish bin. Silicone is not recyclable.
