Menstrual Cups

Ruby Cup donating cups to African schoolgirls

With every purchase of a Ruby cup, they give a cup to a needy schoolgirl in Africa.  This is a great initiative to help keep girls in school!

“Buy One Give One

Menstruation  is  a  main  cause  of  school  dropout  for  girls  in  poverty.  Pads  and
tampons  are  too  expensive or unavailable,  and girls  are  forced  to use  alternatives
such as mud, bark, rags, cloth or pieces of newspaper. As well as being undignified
and unhygienic, these alternatives are not safe, and girls stay home. This amounts
to 20% of their school time.  

When you buy a Ruby Cup, you give one to a Kenyan schoolgirl. With one Ruby
Cup, a girl can all the way from primary school through university without having
to worry about her period again.  
 
With  an  office  in  Berlin  and  Nairobi,  the  three  Danish  female  founders  Julie,
Maxie,  and  Veronica,  have  won  several  awards  for  their  ground-breaking  work.
Ruby Cup is sold online to Western markets, and when you purchase a Ruby Cup,
you give one to a school girl in poverty. “
