Over 200 million girls and women in India without access to sanitary pads miss up to 50-60 days of school or work every year. They use rags or ash during their periods, risking infection. Conventional sanitary pads contain up to 90% plastic and other harsh chemicals that cause irritations, rashes, UTIs and do not biodegrade for 600-800 years after disposal. We have developed affordable sanitary pads made from sustainable ingredients such as bamboo fiber, banana fiber and corn starch that biodegrade completely within 6 months of disposal. With our “Buy One, Give One” initiative, we donate a pad to a girl in need with every Sparkle purchase.
