Hello Cup Goes To New York

Nearly a year after setting up a menstrual cup manufacturing business in Hawke’s Bay, two lifelong best friends have hit a huge deal to help female runners at this year’s New York Marathon.

The Hello Cup is a reusable hygienic cup that is an alternative to traditional feminine sanitary products. It holds three times as much fluid as tampons and can be worn for up to 12 hours.

Founded by Havelock North resident Robyn McLean and her friend Mary Bond in December, Hello Cup manufactures thousands of cups every month from a factory in Onekawa.
