On Zero-Waste Periods: Menstrual Cups

Having your period is a bitch – it is painful, it gives you the unnecessary mood swings, and it makes you weak. It’s the unpredictable visitor almost every girl has, and she has to welcome that bitch most of her life. Obviously, I’m not talking about the one we use in sentences.
