Hey everyone,

Just letting you all know that the Lunette company has decided to discontinue the Green Diana.  I've been told that a new color is probably in the future, but they are not sure exactly when.  Sad to see that color go, I kind of liked it.  But I thought everyone might want to be aware of it.

Up to this point, the company has continued selling and distributing the green Diana, and the sales have done ok in America but not so much in Europe. So they have decided it was best to discontinue it. I got the notice from Lunette a couple of days ago. :(

so they weren't producing new ones since the release of the new colours but were considering the possibility of producing more in the future? and now they decided not to?
I suppose it's because in Europe it's easier to get a coloured cup... while the Lunette is the only FDA-approved one.

They only recently stopped making/selling them. I've been hearing about the last quantity they have selling out this week.

But you could be right about the FDA thing...

They have, but there might be some distributors who still have not sold all of what they had in stock. I received notifications from Lunette themselves (at least in the USA) that the distributors already bought up almost everything they had. So whatever is left out there now, is mostly just what some distributors managed to grab from the company at the last minute. But once those are gone, its all gone.

Aww. I'm really glad that I took the plunge when I did and bought one then!
