I have an online store selling reusable menstrual products, and I thought at least a few women here might be interested.
I specialise in menstrual cups
(sometimes known by the brand name mooncup) and washable cloth pads
at the moment, but may branch into other products, such as sponges and cloth tampons, at a later date.
I'm still getting up and running, so don't have every brand in stock just yet (international post is sooooo sloooooow), but I will be stocking these cup brands: Diva, femmecup, fleurcup, iriscup, lunette, ladycup, mooncup, Keeper moon cup, meluna, miacup, shecup, and Yuukicup (naturecup
too when they are available). Some are here already, others are in transit.
I will also have as broad a range of locally made and imported cloth pads as I can, including some I make myself.
The website is www.environmenstruals.co.nz
. (the pad related parts of the site are still under construction, as are a few of the more finicky details throughout).
If you're ever up in Chch I can offer personal consultation with samples and all to help you pick the right products for you, and can even save you postage and let you pay in cash :-) For everyone else, I'm very happy to chat online or on the phone, and can be very flexible on payment methods for those without credit cards or online banking. I'll be heading down to Dn for the women's expo in Dunedin - my facebook fan page will probably have a discount coupon to get you cheaper entry, but closer to the time.
I hope to be saving you all hundreds of dollars each very soon.
*I'm also keen to hear from anyone who makes pads and pouches who may want me to stock their wares.
