How To Use It

Rather that us explain it – here’s a link straight from the Mooncup ladies themselves — https://www.mooncup.co.uk/how-to-use/

How To Dispose Of It

In an email communication with MoonCup, the following response was sent, “In regards to recycling, due to the nature of the Mooncup collecting blood, it is particularly tricky as there are restrictions on recycling products that are unfortunately classified as ‘offensive waste’. We are also currently not aware of any facilities in the UK for recycling medical grade silicone. When the time comes and you no longer need your Mooncup, we can understand preferring not to dispose of it in the bin, an alternative is to burn it in a well-ventilated space or an open fire (make sure you follow usual fire safety precautions). Because medical grade silicone is a thermoset material, it doesn’t melt when it’s burnt but turns to ash.” “our factory have informed us that disposing of the Mooncup® by burning it will not give off any toxic fumes and will only result in a white silica based powder. “
