Re: Compostable sanitary pads: a green solution in menstrual hygiene?

Dear Chris,

Thanks for your kind reply. I am sorry you faced issue opening our website. We are a company which believes in innovation and whatever we do, we try to do with an element of innovation. So, our diapers are innovative too, free from unwanted materials, frills. It can be used with normal reusable underwear and made with compostable materials. We have created a model where more money can be generated selling the composted diapers, so that cost of actual diaper will be minimal. I have been to Mexico few times and have partner who are keen to take our products in local market. We also have received queries from Colombia & Venezuela too for our products, so will surely let know you once we decide to work in South America market with local partners. Please let me know if you have any queries.

with regards
Sharmila

Re: Compostable sanitary pads: a green solution in menstrual hygiene?

How can I get hold of a pack of these for my own experience( here in Lusaka Zambia)? Have you done any research trials yet? If so what was the response from women who used the product?
