Welcome to Aruna Revolution Health

The innovation of sustainable menstrual pads is crucial for mitigating global climate change and ecological harm. We cannot stop using menstrual products, but we can replace them with an environmentally responsible option!

Waste

In a lifetime, an individual will use between 5,000 and 15,000 disposable pads and tampons.

Most menstrual pads  and tampons are made from 90% plastic. 


 

Disposal of single use menstrual products - tampons, pads and applicators generates 200,000 tonnes of waste per year. 

 

It has been estimated that a regular non-organic pad can take 500–800 years to break down.

Disposable products that do not make it to landfill can end up in our oceans or washed up on our beaches, where they create a different problem. They become microplastics where they harm marine life.

Materials

 

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), cotton is the most widespread profitable non-food crop in the world.

Cotton cultivation severely degrades soil quality with the application of fertilizers and pesticides.

Heavy use of pesticides also raises concern for the health of farm workers and nearby populations.

Runoff of pesticides, fertilizers, and minerals from cotton fields contaminates rivers, lakes, wetlands, and underground aquifers. 

Production and processing of cotton uses a large amount of water. Some experts contend that cotton is the largest user of water among all agricultural commodities. 


In India, approximately 20,000 liters of water are needed to produce 1 kilogram of cotton.

Accessibility

One-quarter of women cannot afford menstrual products, and fourteen percent of those women resort to unhygienic practices like socks, old rags or t-shirts.

 

A 2019 survey conducted by Plan International Canada found that “34% of women and girls in Canada are regularly or occasionally forced to regularly or occasionally sacrifice something else within their budget to afford menstrual products.”

 

 Not everyone can use reusable period products due to a lack of WASH stations, soap, and cost.

 

Rural communities have a tough time accessing water and can’t safely wash their products.
