*** COMPETITION NOW CLOSED – SORRY! ***
After reviewing the fabulous Mooncup I thought that it would be a great idea to host a giveaway so that one lucky winner can also reap the benefits.
The Mooncup is a reusable soft, silicone menstrual cup that works by forming a gentle vacuum seal, collecting menstrual blood rather than absorbing it. They’re safer, greener, and cheaper than tampons. Mooncup is made from medical grade silicone, not latex, and contains no bleaches, BPA, dyes or toxins or bleaches so it’s suitable for women with latex allergies and/or sensitive skin.
To find out what I thought of the Mooncup, read my review here.

I’m currently embarking on trying to live a zero waste live – Using a Moon cup is the perfect solution to cutting down on needless waste
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:27 pm
Hey thanks for stopping by and entering! I love this! I’m really wanting to reduce my waste but it’s tough in a 3 kid household. Good luck 🙂
Heather S23rd March 2016 at 5:51 pm
Crossing my fingers and toes! I have been wanting to switch to a cup for months and months now! So tired and over disposable products. Thanks for hosting such a rad giveaway for one! 🙂
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:28 pm
Hi Heather! It’s so worth making the switch, even if you just use it for half of your period think of the difference it would make! Thanks so much for entering and good luck 🙂
Isabel O23rd March 2016 at 5:59 pm
I have always wanted to switch so I can limit my impact on the environment.
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:29 pm
Hi Isabel – absolutely! Thanks for stopping by and entering – good luck 🙂
Kim M23rd March 2016 at 7:18 pm
Wish I’d had one when I was younger – only used one just before the menopause – but so much easier – no leaks and quick and easy to clean x
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:31 pm
Hi Kim, me too! It’s amazing how little we get taught about these things. At least you got to spend some time without those awful toxic things! x
Leila Benhamida23rd March 2016 at 9:09 pm
Love the idea that is reusable and more hygienic. That’s a winner.
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:32 pm
Absolutely fab reasons! Thanks for entering Leila and good luck 🙂
Sarah24th March 2016 at 4:16 am
Hoping the silicone will be kinder to my ph levels than pads and tampons
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:33 pm
Hi Sarah, I don’t think it affects pH levels at all. Thanks for entering and good luck 🙂
Lisa J24th March 2016 at 9:04 am
Great idea – wish I’d known about these years ago! Love the idea of not harming the environment and always grateful of ways to save money!
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:35 pm
Me too! If only they shared these options in our schools! Thanks for entering Lisa and good luck 🙂
Sue Bielewicz24th March 2016 at 12:54 pm
Read lots of positive reviews. Hygenic, avoid using sanitary towels laced with chemicals.
greensofthestoneage24th March 2016 at 7:35 pm
All fab reasons Sue! Thanks for entering and good luck 🙂
Kelly (@KellyL_85)25th March 2016 at 2:30 am
Ive always been interested in trying them!
greensofthestoneage25th March 2016 at 3:21 pm
Hi Kelly, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks for entering and good luck 🙂
Emily25th March 2016 at 9:32 pm
I’ve used one in the past and it was great, means no worrying about forgetting to put more products in your bag when going out and about. Sadly my current one seems to keep leaking so I think it’s time for a new one! I’ve been really missing it the last few months.
Clare B.26th March 2016 at 10:54 am
I switched in 2004 after buying one at Glastonbury Festival and can’t recommend the Mooncup enough. If I won I’d like to gift it to my friend as she’s not convinced about taking the first step and worried that if she doesn’t get on with it then she would have wasted the money.
clairew13726th March 2016 at 12:20 pm
I find tampons make me sore, so would like to try something else
Claire Simpson26th March 2016 at 1:05 pm
I’d love to switch to help the environment x
Heather Swain26th March 2016 at 1:43 pm
I’d love to just find something new!
Rachel Sanders26th March 2016 at 3:22 pm
I like the idea of using something more natural than tampons
William Triscott26th March 2016 at 4:40 pm
MY WIFE WANTS TO GIVE IT A TRY
Hollie26th March 2016 at 11:26 pm
We’re backpacking soon and I’d really like to take one of these with me. Would come in especially handy for jungle trekking!
Kristy Leanne Brown26th March 2016 at 11:36 pm
I want to swap as tampons are uncomfortable (I’m sensitive) but I don’t like pads as they get in the way of my sports
Olivia m27th March 2016 at 3:21 am
There’s no risk of TSS 🙂
Melanie28th March 2016 at 6:27 am
It’ll probably be so freeing! I’d love to win this. 🙂
Ger28th March 2016 at 6:21 pm
Sounds like an ecological, practical, invisible option for people with periods!
Beky Austerberry28th March 2016 at 7:19 pm
I have tried one of these before and would love to use it again, I like the cost and the environmentally friendly aspect of them
Solange30th March 2016 at 3:54 am
Sanitary products can be costly so this would be a brilliant product to switch to.
Emma Gibson30th March 2016 at 9:20 am
I’d love to try it.
Angie Hoggett (@angiehoggett)31st March 2016 at 12:11 pm
I’d love to switch, it would be nice not having to carry tampons with me and I think it will be much more hygienic
Izzy Smith1st April 2016 at 4:38 am
i would like to try, something different , and i might prefer it
Sharon2nd April 2016 at 9:29 pm
I have been wanting to try this for few months now, and finally I feel I’m ready for it. I stopped using tampons – basically from the same reasons you stated. And I hate wearing ‘nappies’ for few days every month!
Jodie Harvey3rd April 2016 at 12:35 pm
i love the fact its more hygenic, and i have a latex allergy so its even safe for me 🙂 no need to remember to put tampons in your bag, and im sure it would save me a fortune!
Paula Phillips4th April 2016 at 7:53 pm
A friend of mine has been using one for a while and she always says how great it is so I’d like to give it a try.
Debra Winfield4th April 2016 at 11:17 pm
I love moon cups! My bathroom bin is always empty and fresh smelling, no bulky towels showing or handbag full of tampons, knowing you can just go swimming impromptu and never having to book holidays around ‘the time of the month’
Victoria Prince5th April 2016 at 9:19 am
I’d like to switch because I am all for greener things 🙂 and I’d love to try one as I think it may be more comfortable
Petra Hora5th April 2016 at 12:37 pm
I heard so many good stories about it that I would like to try it myself.
Maddy5th April 2016 at 12:42 pm
Have heard great things about Mooncup and it fits with my green ethos
emilyfowlerwrites5th April 2016 at 1:01 pm
I’ve actually already switched, and as one of the (many!) benefits of a Mooncup is that they last for years, if I’m lucky enough to win, I’m going to give it to one of my friends. I’m on the verge of convincing her to give it a go, and winning one for her should be enough to encourage her to switch! I’ve only been using a Mooncup for 5 months, and I’m already head over heels in love with it. Just thinking back to those tampons sucking out every drop of moisture from inside me – YUCK! – makes me shudder.
Helen A5th April 2016 at 3:58 pm
I’d love to switch, kinder to my pocket and the environment!
Adrian Bold5th April 2016 at 7:38 pm
Sounds like a unique and hygienic idea. Good luck everyone!
sherri hough5th April 2016 at 10:19 pm
Basically my dr has told me about this as I suffer from eczema down there and can’t use pads as they irritate. I would love to try one of these as feel they will improve my life a lot
Mary-Kate Newman6th April 2016 at 12:54 am
I would love to use the moon cup because there are literally too many positives to list!! theres the hygienic superiority, the comfort, they price and the eco reasons! this would literally be the dream! thankyou so much!!
Georgie6th April 2016 at 2:18 am
I’ve thought about trying one for a while. They’re better for the environment & the pocket!
emma kinsey6th April 2016 at 9:24 am
love to switch
Shannon6th April 2016 at 11:15 am
While I’ve used cloth nappy for my children I have not yet ventured into reusable products for myself. My friends have highly recommended the moon up and I’ve just read they help if you have a latex allergy. I definitely think they are an all round winner!
Vickie Jackson6th April 2016 at 1:50 pm
It’s something I want to try. Its something that should get taught to people as part of sex ed in schools.
LEE HARDY6th April 2016 at 2:37 pm
I think my wife may give this a go.
Catherine Gregory6th April 2016 at 4:11 pm
I’ve read some great things about mooncup and how it can help period pains and flow so for that alone I would love to try
P.S I tried signing upto your email newsletter but not submitting when I press submit button x
Lisa Mcalley6th April 2016 at 5:23 pm
To help me feel fresher during my period and to help the environment
claire sen6th April 2016 at 9:10 pm
Always willing to give something new a try, anything to make things easier!
Robyn Logan Clarke6th April 2016 at 10:18 pm
We’ve been starting to seriously think about our waste lately and it never bugged me before but having used sanitary towels hanging around for up to 2 weeks is really disgusting thought. Would love to try a Mooncup.
nicola james6th April 2016 at 11:07 pm
id love to try one of these,never heard of them till now,im intrigued!!
Laura Harrison6th April 2016 at 11:26 pm
Sounds interesting. I would like to try the Mooncup. I have found a report on the FDA website that there are only traceable amount of Dioxin on tampons which isn’t harmful. Here is the link. You will probably have to copy and paste it.
