A sustainable social enterprise producing biodegradable sanitary pads from water hyacinth*, an invasive aquatic plant.
"Women in poverty don't need one more thing to have to depend on others for. And the planet doesn't need one more non-disposable object. That's why the water hyacinth pad is so brilliant: it is clean, biodegradable, and enables women not only to be independent but also provides jobs for them locally in the manufacturing process."
