Students of IIT Delhi Launch Reusable Sanitary Pads

“We have provided samples to authorities in African nations who are currently conducting test on them. We hope for a positive result very soon,” Archit added

Students of IIT Delhi on Tuesday launched reusable sanitary pads made with composite banana fibre. The startup claims that these pads can last up to two years.

The reusable pad is developed by Archit Agarwal and Harry Sehrawat based on inputs from several IIT Delhi professors.

“The reusable pads are ultra-thin and are highly absorbent with Quadrant True Lock Technology which makes the pad leak-proof and avoids creating any rashes,” Archit told media while launching the pads.

A patent has also been filed for the design.
