WHERE CAN I EMPTY THE CONTENTS?


Empty the contents responsibly, so that they do not pollute and become a public health issue.

Water your plants
  • Dilute the contents of your cup with water, mix well and use it to water your plants.
Nourish the soil
  • If you are out on the countryside, pour the contents of your cup over the roots of a plant.
Flush it down the toilet
  • If watering plants or nourishing the soil are not an option, you can empty your cup into the toilet and flush.
Get creative
You can keep your menstrual blood to paint “menstrualcolors”. Pour the contents of your cup into a clean jar with a lid and use immediately. Otherwise, refrigerate to slow down decomposition.
Dry out and keep
Pour the contents of your cup in a glass dish, cover it with a piece of cloth or paper and let it sit under the sun to dry. This dried menstrual fluid can be made into a powder and stored in a closed jar. Add water to reconstitute this powder and use it to paint or to fertilize your plants.

I HAVE A BLOOD-TRANSMITTED DISEASE. HOW SHOULD I DISCARD THE CONTENTS OF MY CUP?
In cases of blood-transmitted infections, you should consider disposing of the contents of your cup directly into a biological waste container.

Keep bags for biological waste at home and get a small, rigid, dark-colored plastic container with a lid that seals. Bring the container with you when you go out, and when you empty your cup into it, add some toilet paper to absorb the liquid and make it easier to pour into the biological waste bag when you get home. Wash the container thoroughly every night, and make sure you securely close the biological waste bag and keep it away from pets and kids. When you finish your period, you can dispose of the biological waste as indicated by the laws of your state or country.

You can request any of those materials by emailing hello@cyclebloom.us
