Menstrual cup for on the go: This period gadget is great for all outdoor activities – yes, even for festivals
Menstrual cups are – once you know how to use them correctly – one of the most ingenious inventions of modern times for women. After all, they eliminate the need for tampons and pads, which are among the biggest sources of waste on earth.
And here we come to the crucial point. Since menstrual cups are reused over and over again instead of simply throwing them away after use, they also need to be cleaned well. And since they disappear deep inside us, it’s not enough to just rinse the period cup off with water. Rather, it must be sterilized or boiled with hot water. This is usually not a problem if you have electricity, a kettle or a stovetop available. If these conditions are not met, however, then things look more difficult. This is the case, for example, at festivals or outdoor hiking tours. And this is exactly where a new, ingenious product comes into play.
This is what makes the new outdoor menstrual cup so special
There is now a menstrual cup designed for outdoor activities. The special feature: the menstrual cup from Lunette is available in a set with a case from Klean Kanteen. This container is made of robust and airtight stainless steel and ensures that the menstrual cup can also be safely sterilized in the great outdoors. You can place the case filled with water on the fire or the stove for disinfection, so that the menstrual cup made of medical silicone inside can be cleaned in boiling water.
Also practical: thanks to the carabiner, the container can be easily attached to other items of equipment, so that it is convenient and easily accessible when the backpack is otherwise full.

Outdoor menstrual cup in the test: It really is that ingenious
What you need to know about the new menstrual cup: The product was not just launched onto the market. After being presented by Peak Performance and Lunette in 2021, it had to undergo a large-scale test. And, what can I say, the interest and feedback was huge even after the first performance. More than 800 people signed up to try the product and 100 women were selected through a raffle to provide feedback on how the cup and container could be improved and to share their experiences with the product. The result is the current version, which is now finally available to order.
