Problem Statement

Out of a total of 35.5 crore menstruating women in India, less than 20% have access to standard menstrual products. In urban areas, this number only goes up to 52%, indicating that nearly half of even urban-based women use unhygienic methods for period protection, making them vulnerable to health issues. 

The percentage of menstruators who have access to standard menstrual products, mostly use non-biodegradable disposable sanitary napkins which if dumped in the ground take 500-800 years to decompose or if burned then produce toxic gases. 

The reusable internal and external menstrual products have problems with usability and comfort. For many menstruators, biodegradable disposable menstrual products are not economical. 

Solution

Onpery® - (1) redesigned the ‘reusable and sustainable (green)’ menstrual products to improve its user experience of usability and comfort such as maximum menstruators can easily adopt green menstrual products, and also to (2) design systems (initiatives) such as to make the products inclusive.
