Why are we doing this?
Poor menstrual hygiene standards
Despite the ongoing advancements in the menstrual health, existing disposable sanitary pads used by the majority of the women continue to be the major reasons for ovarian cancer, cesarian cancer, skin dermatitis, hormonal dysfunction and thyroid based conditions. Therefore, we decided to make cannabis hemp based sanitary pads for menstruating women to provide them a dermatologically safe alternative during their periods while enjoying the benefits of the medicinal plant.
This leads to ovarian cancer , hormonal dysfunction and thyroid cancer among other health concerns.
Lack of sustainable alternate cash crops for farmers
As another struggling section of the society, farmers despite being food growers and soil savers continue to be one of the economically weakest sections. Since the raw material of the sanitary pads will be coming from the Mother Earth, it gives farmers a sustainable alternate cash crop and since, hemp gives high biomass per acre; it can provide a sustainable source of income because menstruation is a usual monthly part of a woman’s life and farmers will never run out of the demand.
Tonnes of bio-medical plastic waste
There are 47 crore menstruating women in India right now which are aged between 12 to 48 years and majority of them use disposable sanitary pads. An average sanitary pad pack has 36 grams of plastic in it and when we count it, it leads to 7200 tons of unspoken tabooed bio-medical plastic in waterways and landfills. Therefore, there is a high need to shift to reusable and biodegradable sanitary pads.
