SuS Pads: A Revolutionary Solution for Period Poverty
By: Hope Spring Water
Period poverty is a significant issue that affects millions of people worldwide, depriving them of essential menstrual products and proper sanitary conditions. The lack of access to menstrual care products forces many people to use unsanitary and potentially harmful alternatives, leading to health problems and discomfort.
To address this issue, SuS Pads provides a reusable, eco-friendly solution that eliminates the need for single-use pads or tampons. The product's innovative design includes an absorbent layer made from natural cotton and towelling materials, which can be washed and reused for 3-5 years
We spoke with SuS Pads founder, Bolu Olorunfemi, about the inspiration behind the product. "I became increasingly aware of the magnitude of period poverty, and I knew something had to be done. Seeing the impact that SuS Pads can have on tackling this issue has been incredibly impactful."
But perhaps most importantly, SuS Pads help to address the significant issue of period poverty. As a cost-effective and long-lasting alternative to disposable products, SuS Pads provide a sustainable solution to this pressing issue.
SuS Pads has developed a holistic training program aimed at educating girls on menstrual health and hygiene, and sexual and reproductive health. Through this program, girls learn about the menstrual cycle, signs of menstrual problems, and proper menstrual hygiene practices, including how to safely use menstrual products like SuS Pads.
In addition to providing a sustainable solution, SuS Pads also train girls from low-income homes on how to make their reusable menstrual pads. By doing so, they alleviates period poverty and reduces girls' absenteeism from school during menstruation. The availability of SuS Pads allows for equality and ensures that girls stay in school to have a brighter future.
SuS Pads, has launched a new charity eCard program that allows people to send personalised eCards for various occasions while making a donation to alleviate period poverty. Through this platform, individuals can send their love across the world while contributing to a noble cause.
