Anonymous said: Hello! I just wanted to say that I love your products and the fact that alternative menstrual products exist in the first place. The only thing that continues to disappoint is the notion that only women use menstrual products - it's just not the case! As a person who identifies as non-binary, the stress of buying tampons in public is no longer happening and that's really great, but it's hard to feel ignored and outcast by a company I admire so much because of gendered language and preconceptions
Thanks! It’s a tricky spot we’re in—for the most part, our customers do identify with the word ‘woman’ (or words like “feminine,” etc) and so it’s a word and type of language we use a lot, simply because the majority of our customers respond well to it, and we exist to serve our customers.
However, we firmly believe that not all women menstruate, and not all who menstruate are women! We recently made a change to some packaging by removing the words ‘for women’ and adding ‘for menstruation’ in its place for that very reason. (This was actually prompted by a tweet from a customer, so do know that we take your feedback seriously!)
So please know that we make a conscious effort to be inclusive to all menstruators, regardless of how they identify! We’re a small business that’s doing our best to be inclusive, but sometimes we aren’t perfect (despite our best efforts!) ;)
Thanks for getting in touch with us!

Yay! Hope you love your new Moon Cup. It is *almost* as amazing as cheese fries ;)
