Why don't you just hand out menstrual cups, it's better for the environment and it's a sustainable solution?

We love menstrual cups, and we love getting them as donations. We have a menstrual cup program where we train frontline workers who disseminate cups to their clients who choose it. Menstrual cups need to come around education, and also, they are not for everyone. To donate $40 towards the cost of a cup, please donate HERE.
