Matteo Milani / Ladies Love Washable Pads

Matteo Milani
Matteo Milani

Many women in India experience health, cultural and economic issues due to their periods. The aim of LLWP is four-folded. First, it is aimed at avoiding sanitary issues, providing cheap cleanable menstrual cloths. Secondly, washable pads are for women made by women: part of the income is given directly to those who produce them, supporting women entrepreneurship, fostering gender equality and reducing poverty. Thirdly, washable pads are eco-friendly, diminishing the environmental impact of disposable sanitary items. Lastly, promoting this entrepreneurship will debunk taboo subjects like menstruation, increasing social awareness.
