We could have stopped at a Wā Cup being safer for your body, saving you a bunch of money and diverting thousands of disposables from landfill. But, nah, we can do even better mahi (work) than this.
We are for people and planet, right through our production line and are always seeking ways to do this even better. Otherwise, in our opinion, we'd be doing a shoddy job. No more 'business as usual (read: degenerative, exploitative capitalism).
We’ve teamed up with our manufacturing partner in the USA to get 100% material traceability all the way through to the quartz silica our Wā Cups are made from. This bit is beyond important because we all have a right to know exactly what we are putting in our bodies.
Made by real humans who are valued
Workers are paid properly and the injection moulding used means Wā Cups are zero waste produced. Tino Pai! This is Liz. She and her team made your Wā Cup.

...with local stuff too
Our boxes and labels are NZ made
and designed from recycled materials
wherever possible. You can reuse them or compost them too.
Sent to you with aroha
Janine packs your cup with aroha (love)
sending it to you from our Wā "Womb Room" in
Canterbury on the family farm.
Postage packaging is plastic free,
compostable and reusable.
No plastic postage bags here thank you!
All our wholesale orders are posted
in preloved, recycled materials.
We use the backs of our postage labels
in replacement of bubble wrap
or any other nasties.
We love Marion and Kath
These two from Logan Sisters Ltd.
pick your Wā Cup orders up at 6am
every weekday and send them
on route to your fantastic self.
We are going circular
After its 10 years, or once your Wā Cup up has served you and loved you, send it right back to us at Wā HQ. Product stewardship shouldn't have to be on you - we believe it should be business (and govt.) lead, across the board.
Silicone cannot be fully recycled but can be upcycled into stuff like sports turf (fun hey!). We are in the process of setting this up, so, you can tell Joe that he's gonna love his rugby training even more thanks to the life-giving assistance of periods.
Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org for our returns address.
You can watch our founder's TEDx Talk for more information on why we chose to manufacture out of silicon rather than plastic or latex.
