We decided to ask Chris Rogers from the Keeper cup Australia a few questions to learn more about how the Keeper cup first reached Australian shores and some of her thoughts on menstrual cups.
When did you begin importing and distributing the Keeper cup in Australia?
The Keeper was first imported to Australia by The Natural Company in 1996.
Why did you decide to begin distributing the Keeper cup?
I had used one for a couple of years and every time I went to the Doctor or Gynaecologist they had no idea what a ‘Menstrual Cup’ was so I saw the opportunity to spread the word.
When did you first hear about menstrual cups, and what were your first thoughts about them?
In a Woman’s Magazine……..first thought was that it sounded a bit ‘yucky or messy’
How has awareness of your brand predominately spread?
Word of mouth and advertising on Internet and in magazines
What do you love most about your job?
Helping ladies save money and look after their bodies in a natural way
What do you consider to be the greatest benefit from using a cup?
Not having to buy sanitary products every month and being able to have your period and go to the toilet without having to take your handbag……..or fossicking through your handbag for a tampon :)…………and being able to go camping without leaving any rubbish behind!
What do you think it is the greatest/most common challenge first time cup users encounter?
Getting used to inserting ‘The Keeper’ and relaxing when taking it out.
If there was one thing you could say to a woman contemplating trying a menstrual cup, what would it be?
Why don’t you try it………you have absolutely nothing to lose……..the Keeper cup has a full money back guarantee and I am sure you will love it and use one for the rest of your menstruating life ………..think of all the money it will save you……..and how you are saving the environment by not putting Tampons into landfill.
