SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT
STOP DISPOSABLE PADS
SHE ASPIRES TO PROVIDE PROPER SANITATION TO ALL WOMEN IN RURAL AREAS
YET, DISPOSABLE PADS HARM HER ENVIRONMENT AND HER BODY
SO SHE COLLABORATED WITH SAUKHYAM PADS TO PROVIDE REUSABLE PADS TO ALL WOMEN
MEET THE TEAM
Amandeep Kaur Dhaliwal
Mother. Daughter. Wife. Women in many rural areas have not been provided with proper sanitation for so long, resulting in many diseases and deaths. A change must happen right now.
Disposable pads contain dioxins(toxins) which are formed in the form of burning/bleaching used pads. These pads end up in the bloodstream of a woman.
DISPOSABLE PADS ARE HARMFUL TO A WOMAN'S BODY
Billions of trees are cut down yearly to make disposable pads. A single disposable pad has the equivilent of four plastic bags. Which means an equivelent minimum of 40,000-60,000 plastic bags are being discarded per woman throughout her menstrual cycle.
DISPOSABLE PADS ARE HARMFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Therefore SHE will be using Saukhyam Pads, a sanitary product created using banana fiber which can be reused. Reusable pads will improve menstrual hygiene.
SHE aspires women in rural areas with such reusable pads.

Her vision is to provide ALL women with the sanitation that they need to improve their menstrual hygiene. Women in our world still use a dirty cloth during menstruation which is harmful to their body. SHE aspires to change that.
Every donation goes towards a woman in need. This social issue, is something that many are unaware of, yet you can make a difference. No matter the amount, every donation will help a woman.
All proceeds go towards products for these women, along with any initiatives supporting this cause.
Make a change, today, right now.
