How does the price of the O! Koek! menstrual cup compare to the cost of pads or tampons?

The average person uses 1,200 tampons over a 5 year period and spends an average of R2,000 on it! A menstrual cup like O! Koek! costs only R290, can be worn for 8 hours at a time, and lasts up to 5 years. It's better for your pocket and the environment!

• The average person uses 20 tampons in a 5-day menstrual cycle
• Over 12 months: 240 tampons = R374.40
