Total Gifted Menstrual Cups
No Footer Text
The community impact of the gift of a menstrual cup is astounding! Even though we get phenomenal feedback from our community groups we still cannot quantify the far reaching effects of how one menstrual cup can change a life!
MyCup NZ is a social enterprise uses the Buy-One-Give-One model to be able to gift menstrual cups to the community.
Other Cups we add to this figure are the cups that have been purchased by our Community Partners who have done fundraising or applied for grants in their community to also gift cups.(Updated 9/12/17)
My Cup NZ Gifted Cups with our Buy-One-Give-One = 726
Community Partner Gifted Cups = 419
TOTAL GIFTED MENSTRUAL CUPS IN NZ = 1145
This figure of 1145 menstrual cups contributes to real life consequences for communities over the life of the cup (10 years):
SAVINGS TO AN INDIVIDUAL in the next 10 YEARS = $2400.00
SAVINGS TO THE COMMUNITY in the next 10 YEARS = $2,740,000.00
WASTE REDUCTION in the next 10 YEARS = 2,740,000 less tampons and/or pads in our landfills
** These figures are based on an average 5 day period, 4 tampons per day (or 4 pads per day) and 1 liner per day.
1 cup = 10 year life
1 year = approx 240 tampons
1 year = pads/panty liners + pain killers
Cost per month = NZ$20.00
Cost per year = $240.00
Periods in lifetime = 456
Cost over lifetime = NZ$9120.00
This can dramatically increase if a person has a longer & heavier period and relies on both pads and tampons.
These are approximate figures only and can vary according to individual needs. Cup life depends on model you buy.
10 years = 1 cup (depending on model)
1 cup = Costs between $25.00 – $65.00
