talula cup UK
Sisters Ella & Lauren started Talula Cup UK in 2018 after meeting Ali, who runs Talula Cup in Zambia. We saw the positive & amazing work that Ali & her team were carrying out in Zambia
- We decided our ethos was simple -
help reduce plastic waste on our beaches & in our oceans by promoting the use of menstrual cups
support Ali with her menstrual health education projects in Zambia
no more plastic waste
We want every female to be able to have a hygienic, safe & environmentally friendly period. Sanitary waste has a huge impact on our planet - 200,000 tonnes a year to be precise.
Owning a reusable Talula Cup drastically cuts your plastic waste consumption & helps
women in Zambia do the same.
We were interviewed by BBC Radio Cornwall & BBC Radio Oxford about plastic waste & how to do your bit.
Tampons & pads are non-biodegradable & are disposed of by nearly half the world's population every month, each taking an average of 500 years to decompose.
The average woman will use 11,000 disposable menstrual items in her lifetime & spend around £1200 on tampons alone.
200,000 tonnes of plastic waste a year is made up of tampons, pads & liners and each disposable sanitary product takes on average of 500 years to decompose.
Plastic waste is killing our oceans, & is now making its way into our water systems.
