Ruby Cup are the makers of a fantastic menstrual cup, but they don't stop there, this incredible brand have a buy one - give one programme.
How does this programme work? For every Ruby Cup purchased, one is donated to a girl in poverty.
Social taboos and lack of sexual health education in some developing countries means that menstruation can be a frightening experience. Fear and shame is something millions of young girls and women are experiencing due to their period.
There are countless girls and women throughout the world who still don’t have access to safe, effective menstrual products. Instead, they resort to using rags, paper and other unsafe materials. Ruby Cup help change that by giving girls access to a product that helps them have 10 years of worry-free, safe periods as well as the information they need to make healthy decisions for their body.
Each Ruby Cup donation comes with an educational workshop on reproductive health, includes a thorough introduction on how to use a Ruby Cup by trainers who use one themselves, and gives the girls access to a support network to make sure they get the help they might need once they start using their Ruby Cup.
Together with their partners, trainers and customers, Ruby Cup been able to help 24,000 women and girls so far to become Champions of Menstruation.
At Ruby Cup they firmly believe that knowledge is power. And for girls to get access to sound information and a tool to help them manage their menstruation helps eliminate at least one of the obstacles girls living in informal settlements face. Help them thrive in their community and live a life where periods don’t hold them back!
