This article is about a women who will be living in Antarctica for 80 days. In part of the article she explains how a menstrual cup will make her time more convenient.  She is also working on a plan to provide them to more women. It's a very inspirational article.

It's cool that she is in such an EXOTIC place (though not one that I think I'd enjoy...) but I don't think she's any different from the rest of us in terms of being an enthusiastic cup user.

As for "making the cup accessible to the indigent market," I like that she seems to be doing it "for them" rather than for self-promotional purposes. I hope she is successful.

I wonder if she knows of the Ruby Cup folks http://www.ruby-cup.com and their efforts? Teaming up with them might be easier than starting from scratch with a venture of her own.

Great article, I'm always glad to see people spreading the word and trying to help others learn about their options :) Honestly I would rather have a cup in the wilderness (or the south pole) instead of disposables, because there is no worrying about where to put the garbage, lol
