NATURE’S CODE

affordable eco friendly sanitary pads for teenage girls and women in deprived communities

Pitch

Disposable sanitary pads are mostly made of synthetic materials and plastic which can take more than 100yrs to decompose. This enormous amount of Menstrual waste is usually dumped in landfills, open spaces, water bodies, flushed down the drain that goes to chock the sewege. The chemicals used in producing most of the sanitary pads on the market cause health problems like cervical cancer and other health related issues for our women.
At NATURE’S CODE we produce affordable eco friendly biodegradable sanitary pads from organic waste, thus the banana stem fiber and corn starch. Our goal is to help empower underprivileged girls and women in the rural. Our products solves the plastic pollution, health, education, employment and gender inequality..
