Anju Sanitary Pad began in 2018, when the idea came to mind to create fully eco-friendly, compostable sanitary napkins using locally sourced 100% natural cotton/polyester fabric from Drivertole, 3 km Butwal to Bhairahawa road, where Anju Sanitary Pad is based. We were inspired by the idea of improving women’s access to sanitary pads in Nepal. Many women have bad experienced who have affected by having to face taboos around menstrual hygiene in Nepal. Anju was passionate about making a product that impacts women and not yet previously commercialized in Nepal. She was looking for an opportunity to explore sourcing natural Eco-Friendly materials for the sanitary pads to make a product that not only positively impacted women but also was good for the environment. Different brands of disposable pad were available in Nepal since all were are not suit for health, environment and community. Therefore Anju Sanitary Pad combined our experiences to conceive and develop a biodegradable and composteable sanitary pad with a cradle to cradle (completely sustainable) business model. Anju Sanitary Pad has business, technical, and local expertise to develop new products and set up manufacturing.
