Why menstrual cups over tampons?
While tampons absorb your flow, a cup collects it, and in much higher capacity. In addition to holding more, you can also wear menstrual cups longer than tampons (12 hours of protection compared to 4-6 with a tampon), and do not have to worry about menstrual cups causing dryness, messing with PH or leaving behind microfibers.
Aside from providing more freedom with longer wear time and being better for the body, menstrual cups are also a much more sustainable option. Close to 20 billion one-time use menstrual products end up in landfills annually in the USA alone. That’s a lot of pads and tampons! Most medical grade silicone menstrual cups, if taken care of can last up to ten years. And because cups can last years, this also means it’ll save you money. So in conclusion, menstrual cups save you time and are better for your body, the environment and your wallet.

Those with heavy flows are especially grateful as Best Periodt Size 2 cups hold 8x more than a regular absorbency tampon.
Will Tampons Disappear?
The short answer is no. While tampons are currently facing a supply chain shortage, they will rebound and be back on shelves soon and will still have people using them. The conundrum is that brands will face though is that while there is a shortage, many users will be switching to healthier, more sustainable options like Best Periodt menstrual cups and this may result in tampon brands losing some of their market share, especially amongst Gen Z and Millennial buyers who tend to be more health conscious and sustainable shoppers.
The reality is that younger consumers are changing the way they purchase menstrual care. According to Deloitte, young consumers will drive the change in the feminine hygiene industry. Generation Z especially has a unique shopping behavior that’s driven by making a positive impact on social and environmental sustainability. But in addition to this, Millennial consumers are also demanding more eco-friendly products and are willing to pay more for green products and change their habits for them as well.
