My name is Shruti and I am raising funds for "Use and Throw Cloth Sanitary Pad" project. This is one of my "Save Earth" initiatives. I am an aspiring Eco Socialist. My organization is purely into manufacturing eco-friendly, plastic free, recycled and up cycled products. My passion is to help keeping the planet green, clean, toxic free and natural, which in turn helps environment and human safe.
About my project:
I have come up with an idea "Use and Throw cloth Sanitary Pad" for women. This will be helpful to replace existing "Use and Throw" plastic pads in some degree. This is completely cloth pad and hence it is bio-degradable. So ultimately this product is helping earth getting rid of plastic to some extent. I have already designed and made few sample pads. Also I have shared it with few women and got it tested and verified. Now I want to start a beta production lot, which I would like to distribute to few hundred women just for getting right feedback. Based on their feedback I will modify and improvise the product to make it convenient for women. After beta production, I will be getting into mass production. I have already been connected to hundreds of women personally due to my regular activities. My major challenge would be to keep the pricing as low as possible in order to get it penetrated faster in the market and in turn will server its purpose.
How will I use Funds?
1. Material and machinery purchase.
2. Wages of Employees.
3. Awareness programs for women to know why they should us this pad. I keep conducting workshops on this subject.
What immediate social benefit this project will give ?
Currently the environmental problem of landfills is a difficult issue to fix. As more waste ends in landfills, the bigger the problem gets. Products that are not biodegradable or are slow to decompose, like plastic, can remain in landfill sites for centuries, often emitting gases that could be harmful to the environment. One of the major waste which goes in land filling is women's sanitary pad. So the product I am launching will directly resolve this problem up to some extent as it's completely bio-degradable.
Please help me fulfill my dream by contributing towards my project or sharing this fundraiser with your friends and family!
We are grateful for your help!
