zero waste

For all the ladies out there. No men allowed.

I am a Diva.

Due to the mixed audience I will not get into major details but… I have turned what is a very wasteful part of a woman’s life into zero-waste.

If you are a man and still reading this, please read tomorrow’s post because I promise it won’t be about this!

If you don’t know what I mean by Diva then please click on my link above. It has changed my life. No longer do I have to “stock-up” for that time of month. I’m totally prepared. It feels more humane than the other alternatives. This product has me as a customer for life… or at least until no longer necessary.

If you know about the Diva Cup but have been a little sceptical consider this:

– it’s silicone

– it’s not made of polyester (which is code for plastic) or heavily pesticided cotton

– it’s always ready when you are, no need for a last-minute trip to the store

– it’s super comfortable

– it can save you $$$

– it even comes in a discreet little bag

Well that might have been a little too much personal info but if even one of you reading this tries it out then the landfills will love me.

If you are a diva too then let me know with a comment or a like!

About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. I switched over ten years ago. I hadn’t heard about the Diva, and bought a keeper. The only difference is the keeper is made out of gum rubber instead of silicone

  2. Thank you for posting this. I have wanted to try it but have been a little nervous. I don’t know…about cancer or something. Ignorant I guess but I haven’t done much research. I will read up on it and given your reccomendations–That will be my next adventure!

  3. I have discovered the cup form a zen cup (www.azencup.com) and wouldn’t go back to tampon an pads. This brand offers also intimate area gel cleanser, the best I have ever tried!!!
