There are over 300 million women who undergo house arrest in rural India during their menstruation cycle; Azadi aims to create biodegradable sanitary napkins so these women can lead the lives they want.
Currently, women in rural India use unsanitary options to deal with menstruation; some of these options include corn husk, rags and newspaper. These unhealthy options often lead to bacterial diseases and invigorate a stigma around women. Azadi has created a pad which is 100% biodegradable and 43% cheaper than any other competitor product on the market in India. Allowing these women to go about their days is a freedom brought to them by the people behind the Azadi label.
