JuJu Menstrual Cup has been listed as a finalist in the 2014 Telstra Business Awards.
“Reaching the finals in the ‘WA Startup’ category has been an amazing accomplishment for our business and it’s wonderful to have our efforts recognized” - Brenda Tootell, Founder.
JuJu Menstrual Cup is a reusable silicone cup that replaces all other feminine hygiene products. It is a healthier, more convenient and cheaper alternative to disposable tampons and pads and is the first Australian-made menstrual cup on the market.
There are a growing number of women making the switch to menstrual cups. An independent study conducted in Canada showed 91% of women who had previously used tampons and tried a menstrual cup for 3 cycles would continue to use a menstrual cup and recommend it to a friend.
“Women in Australia are realizing the numerous benefits of menstrual cups and we couldn’t have got to where we are today without our loyal customers who have made the switch to JuJu and have helped spread the ‘reusables’ word.”.
By using JuJu instead of disposable feminine hygiene, women can reduce their eco-footprint by saving the environment from the disposal of approximately 300 products every year. JuJu can be worn for up to 12 hours, providing women with greater freedom and it’s a one-off purchase, which pays for itself within the first year.
Western Australia winners of the Telstra Business Award will be announced at the Gala Dinner held at Crown on Tuesday, 24 th June 2014 with state-based winners attending the National Awards Gala Dinner on Thursday, 7 th August 2014 in Melbourne.
JuJu Menstrual Cup was launched in July 2011. JuJu is manufactured by Freedom Products.
