GreenCycle Program

Our Vision

To create a circular economy by not only developing sustainable, biodegradable and compostable products, but also designing effective waste management infrastructure to reduce waste going to landfills.

It’s no secret that conventional absorbent hygiene products are chock-full of non-biodegradable, petrochemical by-products - these are simply not sustainable in the long run, as they generate thousands of tons of waste, which remains unchanged in landfills for over 500 years.

We are strong advocates for the newly-emerging circular economy - thus, we developed the GreenCycle Program to transition from the linear economy of ‘take-make-waste’ to our very own circular ecosystem.

GreenCycle Program

It’s no secret that conventional absorbent hygiene products are chockfull of non-biodegradable, petrochemical byproducts - these are simply not sustainable in the long run as they generate thousands of tons of waste which remains unchanged in landfills for over 500 years.

We are strong advocates for the newly-emerging circular economy - thus, we developed the GreenCycle Program to transition from the linear economy of ‘take-make-waste’ to our very own circular ecosystem.

To make our products as sustainable as possible, we have replaced the non-biodegradable ingredients with renewable and compostable ones. Our plan is to create separate collection and composting infrastructure to make the large-scale composting of absorbent hygiene products a reality, while we reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and incinerators.

Welcome to GreenCycle.
Welcome to your first foray into the world of sustainable circular economy.

We focus on the entire product life-cycle

Create

We develop high-performing and quality sustainable products made from biodegradable and compostable ingredients

Collect

We pick up used products straight from the consumers’ residences, without compromising on hygiene parameters

Compost

We compost used products in an industrial compost facility so that they can safely go back to nature, instead of ending up in landfills or incinerators

How It Works

We know you want to do your part to protect the environment, so let us make it easy for you. We will pick up your used sanitary pads and turn them into compost every month!

Step 1: Switch to Sparkle compostable sanitary pads

It’s extremely easy to join the GreenCycle Program - all you need to do is change up your current sanitary pad with Sparkle compostable pads and hit the sign-up button. What’s even better? You can use Sparkle pads just like your regular pads.

Step 2: Dispose of the used Sparkle pads in our leak-proof/odour-proof compostable bags

Place the used Sparkle pad in the individual compostable disposal bags you’ve bought alongside your pads. By doing so, you are already helping with the first step of segregating sanitary pad waste, right at the source!

Step 3: Request a pick-up

Once your period cycle ends, you can request a monthly pick-up. Our waste-management partner will collect the used pads from your doorstep.

Step 4: Way to go, we’re one step closer to making tomorrow more sustainable!

Your used pads will be transported to our industrial compost facility where they will be turned into compost that can regenerate the Earth. Thank you for diverting your period product waste from landfills and incinerators.

GreenCycle Pilot Project

As a first step for making large-scale composting of absorbent hygiene products a reality, we have started our GreenCycle pilot project in Surat, Gujarat, India. With this pilot project, we aim to not only reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and incinerators, but also prove that industrial composting of absorbent hygiene products is possible.

As a part of our pilot project, 100 menstruators participated in the GreenCycle Program. Once a month, we collected used sanitary pads and transported them to our industrial composting unit. At our pilot plant, we use in-vessel hot composting machines that optimize composting conditions such as temperature, turning aeration, etc. to allow microorganisms to thrive and accelerate the natural process of decomposition.

Our composting process includes multiple steps such as disinfection (to remove harmful pathogens), shredding (to maximize surface area for microorganisms to do their work), adding customized microbes (that can effectively break down the ingredients of our products) and maintaining compost conditions (such as temperature, carbon to nitrogen ratio, moisture, etc).
