One for the girls…

I now have a Mooncup.

I haven’t used it yet.

I’m rather scared.

It’s huge.

I don’t want to go all hippy and earthy about it, but if you’re interested, this link is helpful and quite reassuring. I bought mine from Body Kind which was cheapest (£14.36, inc p&p) but they are available from lots of websites, and also in Boots.

One major consideration was sterilising them. I’m not convinced the people sharing my kitchen with me would have been very impressed with me boiling it in our communal pans, so I’ve had to buy some sterilising tables, which were very cheap in Superdrug.

Maybe I will turn into one of these women who’s all evangelical about Mooncups. I probably seem it already, but I’m only converted in principle for the next few weeks…

    Don’t be scared of the mooncup! It looks big, but it’s not that bad! The first few times you use it can be a little messy, but after about 3 months you’ll love it, and go on about it to everyone you meet.
    Although, Be aware of people bringing it up in random conversations at inaproppriate times! (eg in a family restaurant!)

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
