Saathi Pads has developed a biodegradable sanitary pad from waste banana fiber allowing women throughout India to no longer miss school/work during their periods. Saathi believes in taking a cradle-to-cradle approach to women’s menstrual health, which benefits women and their communities at every step in the process. We envision a system where our Saathi - Biodegradable Sanitary Pads are made from local banana fiber and are distributed in effective and relevant ways, with education and outreach. We will take responsibility for the waste, by giving women ways to dispose, collect, and “upcycle” them to make high-value fertilizer or biogas, bringing additional income to the community.
