Over your lifetime you can expect to save up to 94% of what you would have spent on disposables, by switching to reusables! Don’t let the initial financial investment put you off – it more than makes up for itself over time.
Based on a 4-5 day cycle the average woman spends around £100-150 per year on disposable products.
Menstrual cups cost £9 – £24.90 and will last you up to 10 years.
A set of reusable pads will cost you about £10 – £35 and some can last up to 10 years.
A pair of period pants will cost you between £23 – £31 and each pair will last you at least 2 years.
These timelines are all dependent on you properly looking after your products so be sure to read the washing/ maintenance instructions that come with whatever product you opt for!
The exact amount of money you save will depend on what and how many products you decide to use, and what throwaway products you move away from.
