Ridding yourself of thousands of sanitary pads and tampons can save you heaps of money over the course of your lifetime and also help cut down on waste, thus helping you save the environment in your own way. The travel industry has embraced the menstrual cup for years, but the device is only recently making its way into mainstream feminine hygiene. Among the now-numerous brands of menstrual cups is the Pixie Cup, an alternative to pads and tampons when menstruation comes around each month.
The 0.48-ounce cup is made from BPA-free, FDA-approved, medical-grade silicone and can be re-used for years. Once inserted, the cup can stay in place for up to 12 hours and can be worn during a variety of activities such as yoga, swimming and biking. Tampons can hold between 5 and 10 milliliters of fluid, but the Pixie Cup can hold up to 25 milliliters of fluid, which can be discarded into a toilet after removal.
The Pixie Cup can be purchased on Amazon.com for $15.95 or on Pixie Cup’s website starting at $15.95. Prices vary depending on the size (small, medium or large). The cup comes with a soft storage bag, one clean reusable cup and instructions. What’s more, when a Pixie Cup is purchased, the company donates one to a woman in need.

Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
