But… menstrual cups are too expensive!

But… menstrual cups are too expensive!

We’ve heard it too many times before: “I’d love to try a menstrual cup, but I can’t really afford it.”

First of all, we completely understand that saving money is important, and sometimes it is hard to set aside enough money to buy a Pixie Cup. That is one of the reasons why we started our Buy One Give One program, so every woman has the opportunity to experience the period freedom that a Pixie Cup provides!

pixie cup on a budget

Today we are giving you THREE ways that a Pixie Cup will benefit your budget!

1. We keep our cups at a reasonable price

If you do a little research, you will soon find that menstrual cups can be pretty pricey! When we started Pixie Cup, we wanted to provide an affordable, high-quality cup that every woman could use! Plus, when you purchase a menstrual cup from us, we give one away to a woman in need, so TWO cups are purchased for the price of one! Now that’s a deal you can’t pass up!

2. The Pixie Cup is reusable!

Each woman spends an average of $15-20 per month on period products. That adds up to about $180 a year! When you buy a Pixie Cup, you pay a small one-time fee and then you can reuse your cup for 10 years (the better you care for it the longer it lasts)! So just pocket that extra $150 or put it toward the Starbucks fund. ???? Wouldn’t you rather enjoy a steaming skinny mocha on that “worst day” of your period than an ultra tampon and maxi pad?

3. We 100% guarantee your satisfaction.

Try the Pixie Cup with a carefree mind. If you find that our cups do not work for you, let us know and we will either provide you with a different type of cup or give you a full refund. We want you to be 100% equipped to take on those PMS days with confidence and joy!

Now that we figured out how you can afford a Pixie Cup AND save money, what else is holding you back from giving a cup a try? Let us know in the comments! ????

The history and evolution of menstrual cups

The history and evolution of menstrual cups

Menstrual cups are a new thing, right?

Actually, these little lifesavers have been around longer than you might think! Menstrual cups have actually been in the making for almost 100 years!

Before menstrual cups and tampons women had to survive their periods with rags and a “sanitary belt.” When tampons were introduced, many people hoped that the quest for a period solution was now complete. As time went on, however, people were educated on the potential risk for Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) and massive amounts of waste associated with tampons.

Thankfully, the menstrual cup was already being perfected.

history of a menstrual cup

The very first menstrual cup was patented in 1932 by the midwifery group of McGlasson and Perkins. In 1937, the first useable commercial cup was patented by an American actress named Leona Chalmers. This patent was so well designed that many similar, bell-shaped cups still exist today, including the Pixie Cup!

The menstrual cup, although designed in the 30’s, has not always been a popular period option. First of all, advertising was difficult in the early 1900’s, because periods were a taboo subject! Secondly, the “rubber” cup was intimidating because it was not reusable and people were not comfortable with cleaning the cup. Finally, the cup was not well received by those who erroneously believed that they would lose their virginity by using the cup.

In the later 1980’s, the menstrual cup was reintroduced, and this time it was well accepted! In the early 2000’s the rubber cup gave way to silicone and the rest is… well, history! 

“The issue we now face is making the cup available to women in need.”

The menstrual cup is becoming more and more popular all the time as women recognize its benefits as an eco-friendly, budget-friendly, good-for-your-body period option! The issue we now face is making the cup available to women in need in the United States of America and around the world, many of whom do not have access to any period products at all.

That is where Pixie Cup comes in. We offer you something extra special. Not only do we provide several styles and sizes of cups for different body types, but for every cup purchased we give one away to a woman in need! When you buy a Pixie Cup, you are purchasing period freedom for someone else. Give back so you AND someone else can live free.

That’s how you make a difference, one cup at a time. ????

…But is it actually sanitary?

Have you ever wondered if your menstrual cup is actually sanitary?

I mean, come on. It is reused a few days a month for years. We all know the mess it comes in contact with. So… is it actually possible to keep a menstrual cup clean?

We hear this question so often that we decided it was time to clear the air.

Yes. Yes! YES!!!

We care so much about this question that we created THREE products to keep your Pixie Cup clean.

Before you read on, if you prefer to SEE the cleaning process, we have an Instagram Story highlight on our profile that is dedicated to cleaning your Pixie Cup! You can check that out HERE.

So, what are your options if you want to make sure your Pixie Cup stays sparkling clean?

First, we have the Pixie Cup Cup.

Yes, that’s right, it’s literally a cup for your cup, and one of the greatest inventions in the world (we might be a little biased but y’all, we have periods, that’s why Pixie Cup exists today).

All you have to do is take your Pixie Cup, drop it in the Cup Cup, squirt in some soap (more on that later) and pop it in the microwave! Boom! You have a thoroughly sterilized Pixie Cup!

Second, we have the Pixie Cup Wash!

You already know of one way to use this wash, but you can also just use this soap with a little hot water and give your Pixie Cup a scrub!

Third, we have our Pixie Wipes!

If you have a Pixie Cup, you already have three of these little handy items to try for free! These are great to use if you are out and about, they are the perfect size to slip inside your purse, back pocket, or even in your bra! (Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, right?) The Pixie Wipes are MUCH smaller than a tampon and we can almost promise you they will save you from some embarrassing moments if one happens to go flying from your purse at the wrong time… they can pass as a hand napkin!

Remember, if you still have questions about keeping your cup clean, we have an Instagram Story highlight on our profile that is dedicated to cleaning your Pixie Cup!

Pixie Tribe, you are awesome! Stay clean, and stay smiling!

What in the world is Pixie Cup?

What in the world is Pixie Cup?

Prepare yourself, because we’re starting off huge. Our goal is to get a Pixie Cup in the hands of every woman on the planet. *insert mad cheers and clapping*

Every. Woman. On. The. Planet! 

You’re probably thinking, “Umm, guys that’s really cool… but what IS a Pixie Cup (and how can I get one)?”

Let’s start from the beginning. Our founder Amber English has always been passionate about reducing waste and caring for both our earth and our own bodies. As she began to research, she saw a need for women to be able to have a product that they could use to make periods more manageable, and reduce literally millions of pounds of tampon and pad waste. More on that here:

Amber learned that millions of girls around the world are forced to stay home from school and work, or even use dirt and leaves during their period because they have no alternative!

That is why she created the Pixie Cup, a menstrual cup that is designed to fit most body types and provides period freedom! Although the Pixie Cup is very affordable there still are women who cannot afford buy one for themselves. That is why, for every Pixie Cup that is purchased, one cup is given away for FREE to a woman in need!

Is there a Pixie Cup in the hands of every woman on the planet? Not yet… but there’s ONE girl in the world that has a Pixie Cup because YOU chose to be brave and try a menstrual cup.

Pixie Cup is not just a product, it is a way for women around the world to join together and support each other as we all take one step closer to a cleaner planet and brighter future for every person.
