Many women and girls are experiencing period poverty, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Throw global warming into the mix, and you’d realize that we have a severe problem. Plastic for Pads is an initiative designed to tackle these issues together. Two birds, one stone! What is period poverty? Period poverty is a lack of access to menstrual products, education, hygiene facilities, waste management, or a combination of these. It affects an estimated 500 million people worldwide (BMC Women’s Health, 2021).

Sadly, we cannot help all 500 million people, but charity begins at home, right? We will be launching the Plastics for Pads project right here in Barnawa, Kaduna State! How can the Plastic for Pads initiative help? Plastic pollution is a significant factor, directly affecting global warming. With this in mind, we have partnered with recycling establishments to provide proper menstruation hygiene products in exchange for plastic waste collected by girls and members of the community in Barnawa (Kaduna State). It’s a beautiful win-win situation, and we’re very excited!

The Plastic for Pads initiative will help alleviate period poverty and raise a generation of ecologically conscious individuals fully immersed in the progressive culture of recycling. It’ll also be a boon to Nigeria’s nascent waste
management industry. Would you like to participate? Don’t hesitate to drop your empty plastic bottles in space 2000 Barnawa(Kaduna State) for us!
