  1. Is the country of origin where the company is from or where the cup is made? I don’t want to get a cup made in China. Will be able to get on a computer in a couple weeks and start putting together a post for you!

  2. Country of origin is where the cup is sold from…. Sometimes when I know a cup is manufactured elsewhere I will state that too, most however don’t say.

    I will point out that a lot of the larger brands of cup, do have them manufactured in China, so while I don’t think much of the cheap Chinese cups (as in those purchased for $5 or less), a well known brand who has the cups manufactured in China, is not necessarily poor quality.

    However, to me, the GynCup looks the same as the “Aneer” brand cups, which are made in China. So this could be a rebranding of these Chinese cups, or it could be a cup that just looks similar and is made somewhere else – I don’t know.

  3. Agreed that those still might be good quality when a reputable company has them produced. I prefer not to buy from China if I can help it. I don’t know if there is a Made in Australia movement like there is a Made in USA one. There are much stricter regulations in the US and EU, so I know the quality of materials, work environment and pay for employees, and environmental regulations are better.

  4. Yes there is, and that is fair enough 🙂

    Just making sure I mention that not all Chinese cups are bad 😀
