Most of us are interested in saving money in some way or another – I mean, who could say no to a good bargain, an amazing second-hand item or a sale at a favourite shop.

Just wait till you see how much money you could save if you decided to use LaliCup instead of single-use tampons and pads. 

How much does an average period cost? 
 

I need to preface this by saying that there is no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ period.

The amount of period products very much relies on how heavy your flow is. 

Saving Money



 Ok, let’s dive into some data
 
On average a person bleeds for four to seven days and menstruates for approximately 38 years (from the age of 13 to the age of 51). 
 
Ok, calculators at the ready! This equates to a grand total of… wait for it… around 450 periods!

 

According to the Women’s Environmental Network (NGO based in London), an average menstruator uses more than 11,000 disposable menstrual products in their lifetime.

This number of course increases drastically for somebody with (very) heavy flow.

Tampons

If you usually use tampons that are on the cheaper end of the scale during your period – that will cost you about $578 (€530 or £440) during your fertile period.

But now, as more and more is known about the chemicals used in tampons people are starting to search for more eco and body-friendly tampons which will cost even more – around $2,311 (€2,178 or £1,760). 
 


Pads

If you use pads as a sole period solution, expect to spend roughly $2,745 (€2,515 or £2,090)!

And this is without additional panty-liners that easily add even more on top of your regular tampon or pad spend. 

menstrual cup is cheaper

Is there anything else I’ll need to go with my LaliCup

 
Nope! Once you’ve mastered inserting your LaliCup
(pst, you can check our handy videos of different folding techniques),
you’ll be leak-free and period hassle-free for years to come. 

So, with one cup that costs €29, you will get complete freedom during those days for multiple years.

Just imagine how much money you could save.

Are period cups worth it? 

 
With the stats we talked about above, we absolutely think they are!

Not to mention that Mama Earth (one cup can be used for up to 5 years) and your wallet will be much happier with you using a menstrual cup.

So, what are you waiting for, check out our incredible period alternatives. 🙂

At the Lali headquarters, we often ask each other what motivates you, our beloved customers, to buy our LaliCup.  

So we decided to list a couple of LaliCup advantages below but would absolutely love to hear your thoughts on the matter. 🙂

THEY ARE AFFORDABLE AND BUDGET FRIENDLY.
You pay a one-time price for a reusable menstrual cup. True, it is a bit of an investment at first. But the cup will last you for years.

DON’T DRY OUT.
Tampons can absorb and strip your vaginal walls of those naturally occurring lining. So when you decide to remove it could make for, well, a rougher trip.

 GREAT FOR HEAVY FLOW
A period cup can hold a lot more fluid than even the most absorbent tampon. Our LaliCups (even model S) were made with greater capacity in mind so you can go longer between emptying your cup and say goodbye to hourly toilet breaks.

WATER SPORTS OR PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES? NO PROBLEM!
LaliCup can be used regardless of what physical activities you have planned for the day: dancing, biking, hiking, even swimming; nothing is off limits.

FREE UP YOUR BAG SPACE
Let me guess, you have at least 5 period products in each bag you own, right? With LaliCup, you no longer have to carry around a year worth of supplies in your bag. All you need is your trusty cup – yes, just the one.

BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT 
Period cups are reusable and can last for several years with proper care; which means you’re not contributing more waste that ends up piling our landfills!

NO MORE RASHES AND ODOUR
You heard that right you can actually get a nappy rash from certain pads. They can also create a moist environment which is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria, yeast infections and odour.

YOU WON’T EVEN FEEL IT INSIDE YOU
Inserted correctly, a menstrual cup is so comfortable that you won’t even notice it’s there!
