Of Recyclable Menstrual Cups: “Excited” PR Email That Makes You Go Hummmmmm….

If you think your email is strange, just have a long-running blog that email marketers’ have you on the “approved” list so that your spam filter leaks. This just made it to my main email.

Menstrual Cups Going Mainstream? –  

Amanda <amanda@snowrunner.co> 8:06 AM (3 hours ago)

Hi Gerard, I just wanted to send a quick email to see if you or anyone you know might be working on anything related to the upcoming launch of Procter and Gamble’s Tampax menstrual cup that’s launching next week or menstrual cups in general? Some have been seeing this as cups hitting the mainstream because it’s the first time Fortune 500 company has created a cup. This could potentially disrupt their current market of other products from Tampax which are not recyclable (while a cup is).

The reason I ask is I’m currently working with a few companies that have been in the cup business for a very long time so in case you wanted to speak with anyone in that world for comments I’m happy to make the introduction. (These are a couple of the companies I work with Evercup, Casco Cup).

Also if you or anyone you know ever need any Menstrual Cup samples or more information I’m always up for sending those over as well.

If you have any questions or need any other info just let me know.

    Gerard, just tell her thanks for asking, but you’re post-menopausal and don’t need that particular P&G product.

    Kinda takes the “sanitary” out of sanitary napkin, don’t it?

    Go buy 2 or 3, and put ’em in your canvas shopping bag (the one with all the listeria in it).

    And it doubles as a shot glass!

    New way for boys everywhere to really earn their redwings. Now in a cup.

    Use em to suck out that snake poison.
    Every IFAK should have half a doz.

    Or, maybe it’s a minimalist condom.
    Just snap it over the german helmet and RIDE!

    A cup?
    Who’d want to save it?

    So last weekend my son was in Vegas for a trade show, and he scored tickets to the Monster Energy Supercross, commonly called the Monster Cup. He sent me a very excited text to tell me this happy news, but in doing so he became the victim of an egregious spell-checker auto correct error. You guessed it, his text said he got tickets to the Menstrual Cup. Boy was I puzzled about that one.

    Yet another progessive bleeding cup of bullshit.

    I suppose every person has their own idea about the Basic Life Skills needed to negotiate the Tough Times effectively. Apparently some would include a Menstrual Cup. Who knew?

    Hmmm. Do they really think somebody named Gerard is spending even a single nanosecond of their life thinking about such things?

    I think I found the flaw in your system, Amanda.

    Back in the fifties I worked after school as a theater usher, every projection booth, in the theaters where I worked, had a pile of Kotex pads that the projectionist would use to catch and clean up oil drips from the carbon arc projectors.

    Good thing we’ve moved on, don’t think these cups would be up to that job.

    > And it doubles as a shot glass!

    Dude, that’s disgusting. It was also my first thought.
    So go ahead and get a dozen, Gerard. We can all do tequila shots on Halloween.
    I’ll bring the bottle.
