MyCup™believe that with the gift of a menstrual cup a person can be empowered. Menstrual Cups are quite simply life-changing.
MyCup™ is made in New Zealand by My Cup NZ Ltd, a Social Enterprise that is actively changing peoples lives. MyCup™ was founded in 2017 by Kimberli Schuitman, although the research and development of their products was started in Early 2016.
MyCup™ will provide a long term, sustainable, body positive, cost-effective menstrual product alternative to all women in New Zealand. MyCup™ works with a buy-one-give-one model, whereby every cup sold also includes a donated cup to our community. These cups are then distributed via community partners by people passionate about improving peoples lives.

To provide a sustainable and long term menstrual management solution

MyCup™ continue to work on research and development on their products and the future of this project. MyCup™ talk to a lot of people and forge relationships with community groups to help distribute menstrual cups. MyCup™ also spend a LOT of time working with customers and helping them on their cup journey!
Why MyCup™ Do It
Women have been forced to hide behind closed doors when it comes to menstruation. Often girls and women in our own communities are forced to stay home whilst they have their periods. They simply cannot afford the most basic of menstrual hygiene products. They miss school, work, university and most importantly feel hopeless and alone in their exclusion for normal life.
MyCup™ wants to end period poverty in New Zealand within 5 years. They want to set a benchmark for the rest of the world to follow.
Menstrual Cups are “Life-Changing” – join in and help your community and have some fun with us along the way!
