Menstrual Inequality

What are Reusable Sanitary pads?

Reusable sanitary pads are cloth-based menstrual pads designed to be washed and reused. Unlike disposable pads, which are typically made of plastic and absorbent materials, reusable pads are crafted from sustainable fabrics like cotton or bamboo. They often consist of multiple layers, including an absorbent core and a waterproof or leak-resistant layer. These eco-friendly alternatives aim to provide a sustainable and cost-effective option for managing menstruation while reducing environmental impact. Users can wash and reuse these pads for an extended period, contributing to both personal comfort and environmental sustainability.

Alarming Statistics

Global attention to this issue is critical, and since the world is drowning in plastic, reusable environmentally friendly menstrual products need to be explored. Mass-produced menstrual products are disposable and contain plastic and other non-biodegradable materials that are harmful to the environment.

Disposable pads are made of 90% plastic while tampons have at least 6% plastic (1). This large-scale plastic production releases vast amounts of greenhouse gases, which cause air pollution and global warming.

In addition, the improper disposal of menstrual products (like wrapping them in plastic bags) fills up landfills and takes years to biodegrade.

Our Angel Wings kits contain fully washable and reusable sanitary pads designed to make a meaningful impact in the lives of young women in need around the world whilst also being mindful of the impact on the Earth.

Each kit comprises of 8 reusable and fully washable sanitary pads and 2 sets of underwear, additionally, they can be packed with or without soap for the recipient.

We are dedicated to providing these essential, sustainable solutions and we endeavour to empower girls to overcome barriers that may otherwise force them to miss out on their education and by doing so we hope to make a lasting difference in the lives of those facing period poverty.

Our Angel Wings initiative is a small but impactful step toward breaking the cycle of period-related challenges and shaping a young woman’s life for the better.

Together, we can create a world where no girl is held back by the lack of access to menstrual hygiene products.
