DEGRADE-A-PAD

Revolutionizing menstrual pad disposal: A sustainable, convenient, and efficient solution

In North America, 12 billion menstrual pads are deposited into landfills every year. Globally, 200,000 tons of waste is created in the form of menstrual pads. Menstrual pads, composed primarily of non-biodegradable material, are a leading contributor to the plastic problem.


The Degrade-a-Pad is a two-part system involving a chemical-free menstrual pad and a compartment in the toilet tank where menstruators can easily dispose of them. An enzymatic solution decomposes the pad into particles within the span of several hours, allowing it to be flushed into the sewer system.
