The Ruby Cup is a soft, silicone, reusable menstrual cup that offers a healthier, more sustainable and cost-effective alternative to single-use period products. As well as dramatically reducing the impact on the environment, the cost of one Ruby Cup also offers significant savings. The cost of each Ruby Cup is equal to the cost of 5-6 months of traditional disposable period products, and each one can last up to 10 years with proper care.

Key features include:-

Made from a single piece 100% medical-grade soft silicone with no seams
Free from plastic, latex, toxins and bleaches
Has 3 times the capacity of a super tampon
Can be worn for up to 8 hours depending on flow volume
Registered vegan with the Vegan Society
Comes with organic cotton drawstring storage bag

Producer Ruby Life also operate their own 'Buy One Give One' mission which they started in 2012. For every cup sold, Ruby gives a cup to a person who does not have access to menstrual care products. In less than 10 years, the Company has donated 100,000 cups reaching 13 different countries.

Available in two sizes - small (40mm diameter x 65mm long), and medium (45mm diameter x 68mm long). The size needed primarily depends upon the position of the cervix and the heaviness of menstrual flow. The cup can be trimmed with scissors for a more comfortable fit. Please see the second image above to explain the sizes in more detail.

The clear Ruby Cup pictured is in the medium size.

The Ruby Cup is designed to be folded and inserted to sit just below the cervix in a similar way to a tampon. Once inserted, the cup unfolds and collects menstrual fluids for around 4-8 hours, depending on the amount of flow. Once the cup is full or 8 hours have passed, the cup must be removed and emptied, rinsed with water and re-inserted. To sterilise before first use and after your period has finished, fully immerse in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Alternatively, it can be sterilised in the microwave if used with a Ruby Clean silicone case.

Designed in Spain and produced responsibly in China from 100% medical-grade silicone and packaged in a recyclable card box. Organic cotton bag and full instruction leaflet included.

Sterilise in boiling water. Not suitable for dishwasher.

The Ruby Cup is made by Ruby Life, a company which began as a social start-up in 2011and has since grown into an award-winning social business.

Co-founders Julie, Maxie and Veronica created Ruby Cup not simply because they wanted better menstrual health solutions for themselves, but more that they wanted these solutions to be available to women and girls everywhere, regardless of their income or background.

In 2012, Ruby Cup started their 'Buy One Give One' mission. For every single Ruby Cup sold, it is accompanied by another cup that is donated to a girl or woman who struggles to gain access to safe and affordable menstrual products. As well as supplying the product, the programme gives women and girls access to educational workshops and mentorship, where they will learn about menstrual care and reproductive health, and how to use their new cup.

In less than 10 years, Ruby has donated 100,000 cups reaching 13 different countries across 3 continents..

When Green Pioneer started working with Ruby Cup in October 2020, they had already donated more than 100,000 cups in 21 countries over 3 continents.
