What are the differences between Saathi pads and other brands?

Saathi pads are biodegradable and made from banana fibre. Most pads are 90% plastic and made from chlorine-bleached wood pulp. We do not let gels, chemicals or synthetic fibres near your body, to prevent itching and rashes. Our pads can also degrade within 6 months- 1200x faster than plastic pads!

What are the benefits of banana fibre?

Banana fibre is an eco-friendly material that provides you great absorbency. The fibre comes from the stem of the banana tree. There are more than 1.2 million acres of banana trees planted in India, and they require less water and fertilizer to grow than cotton. Before there was a use for banana fibre, farmers would compost the banana trees after each harvest. Now, they earn extra income by selling the fibre and you get all-natural pads!

What size are Saathi pads?

Saathi pads come in XL Wings size. They are suitable for regular to heavy flow. Look forward to more sizes coming soon!

How do I dispose of Saathi pads?

You may dispose of Saathi pads normally in a waste bin. Saathi pads degrade within 6 months of disposal under normal conditions!
