Providing quality reusable menstrual products to low-income women for free while promoting menstrual hygiene

Low-income women may find the expenses on disposable menstrual products each month a financial burden. To save money, they may defer the replacement of used disposable pad/tampon. This may lead to health problems.

The venture proposes to provide high-quality, durable and reusable menstrual products, including cloth pads and menstrual cups, for low-income women to relieve their financial burden. A buy-one-give-one business model will be adopted. Revenue generated from selling cloth pads and menstrual cups will subsidise free reusable menstrual products for low-income women. Education workshops will be held for low-income women when they receive the menstrual products in order to raise their awareness of proper menstrual hygiene and promote the usage of reusable menstrual products.
