The barriers and Benefits of buying and using reusable menstrual cups - environmental focus

Hi, My name is Merrill Johnson and I am doing a project for my Fostering Sustainable Behavior class.

The project is to investigate a sustainable behavior that I want to promote like recycling, composting, riding the bus etc. Briefly, a sustainable behavior is one that would be good for the planet.
I chose to focus on promoting the use of reusable menstrual cups over the use of disposable menstrual products. The behavior I am trying to encourage is for women to purchase and use reusable menstrual cups.

I have completed a literature review, some observations and this is the survey component. Lastly I will develop a strategy where I have to describe how I will reduce the barriers that prevent women from purchasing and using reusable menstrual cups and increase the awareness of the benefits of using menstrual cups. I will also have to describe how I will increase the barriers to purchasing disposable products and reduce the benefits for using disposable products.

With the above in mind could you please take 2 minutes to answer the following 2 questions:

Question 1: What makes it difficult or challenging for you to purchase and use a reusable menstrual cup?

Question 2: What do you see as beneficial or rewarding about purchasing and using a reusable menstrual cup?

Whether you use or do not use reusable menstrual cups I would be very grateful for your answers. I have been asked to receive 10 responses from women participating in using reusable menstrual cups and 10 responses from those who do not.

I AM so GRATEFUL for your responses and would appreciate all any comments. Please do not feel confined in your answers you may talk about convenience environment social taboo, health, cost, ease, education, awareness, comfort, etc.
Please feel free to include any information outside of your answers to the questions that pertains to menstruation and menstrual products and the environmental effects

If you could please send me your responses I would greatly appreciate it. All responses will be anonymous in the reporting. I appreciate the time you have taken to help me with this project.

The one trick.... This is unfortunately due very soon.... I would appreciate you taking the time to reply to me as soon as you can. Thank you!!!
