With the increasing amount of plastic waste created by the women's sanitary products, companies worldwide are coming up with innovative ways to environment-friendly products while keeping the cost down of the product. In that direction, an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi-incubated startup has come up with plastic-free reusable sanitary napkins that can last for up to two years.

Sanfe claims to have designed first reusable sanitary pads. The pad is made up of four layers of different fabrics: Polyester Pilling, Terry and Banana Fibers including viscose and Polyester Fibers and Cotton Polyurethane Laminate.

Developed by Sanfe's founders Archit Agarwal and Harry Sehrawat, these reusable sanitary pads can be used up to 120 times after washing them in cold water with detergent after every use.

"The reusable pads are ultra-thin and are highly absorbent with Quadrant True Lock Technology which makes the pad leakproof and avoids creating any rashes. A patent has also been filed for the design," a statement from the startup said.

Sanfe said it was trying to address the huge problem of disposable pad waste burdening the planet. Quoting data from Menstrual Hygiene Alliance of India (MHAI), it said that there are almost 336 million menstruating women in India, of which 36% use disposable sanitary pads summing up to 121 million.
