Every Queen Bleeds

Noble Cup answers to the needs of African women by combatting the stigma associated with menstruation, and making life while bleeding easier and safer.


 

FINANCIAL DISADVANTAGE

The high price and taxation on disposable pads and tampons shuts many women out of the menstrual product market altogether. In fact, 25% of Ethiopian young women do not use any menstrual product at all and that’s true in both rural and urban areas.

FINANCIAL BENEFIT

Noble Cup is essentially a one- time investment in menstrual health that’s exponentially more cost-effective than any disposable product currently on the market, even despite the 67% taxation that exists on all feminine hygiene products in Ethiopia.

HEALTH RISK

Tampons and pads contain potentially harmful bleaching agents, chemicals, and dyes that can cause irritation and discomfort—or, if you factor in the risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome, even death.

Unhygenic practices of washing rags which is the common method of menstural hygiene management in Africa leads to numerous vaginal infections.

HEALTHY LIVING

The silicon cup is entirely non- toxic, containing none of the potentially harmful ingredients that can cause Toxic Shock Syndrome.

Noble Cup is made from silicon so bacteria does not stick to it, thus lessening the potential for vaginal infections.

ENVIRONMENTALLY
DAMAGING

Pads and tampons create unnecessary waste and are difficult for women in communities with limited sanitation facilities to dispose of

ENVIRONMENTLLY CONSCIOUS

Noble Cup is reusable for up to 5 years and requires far less water to clean than the homemade reusable alternatives that are currently widespread. As the threat of drought becomes ever more present in Ethiopia, products such as Noble Cup could become essential tools in water conservation.

TIME LOST

Young women are absent for 20% of the school year on average, due to the lack of education on menstruation and inadequate sanitation facilities. What’s more, the popular homemade reusable products are generally time- consuming to clean.

TIME SAVED

Noble Cup offers a convenient, time-effective answer to menstrual health management. No more disruption to the daily routine. No more washing and drying of menstruation rags.

MISINFORMATION

Many young women have limited access to education on menstruation. Indeed, 67% of girls across Ethiopia reported receiving no education on the subject at school.

One study in Northeast Ethiopia found that 40% of schoolgirls cited shame connected to buying disposable sanitary pads from a shop as a reason for not using them.

EDUCATION

Noble Cup aims to address the fears and concerns around menstrual health that young women struggle with behind closed doors by normalizing the conversation with empowering, positive, and highly informative messaging.
