Conventional Plastic Pads
Commercial pads contain up to 90% plastic and other harsh chemicals and remain unchanged in the landfill for around 600 years after disposal. #PlasticFreePeriods
Why Banana Fibre
Banana plants grow rapidly in just 9-12 months. Once bananas are harvested, these plants become agro-waste. Farmers typically burn these discarded stems which pollutes the environment.
In India, around 800,000 hectares of banana plantations generate around 64 million tonnes of agro-waste.
We transform this agro-waste into sustainable raw material for making Sparkle pads.
Across the globe, millions of girls and women miss up to 50-60 days of school or work every year because they cannot afford menstrual hygiene products. Access to sanitary napkins can provide girls and women equal opportunities to reach their full potential at both school and work.
