Unprotected Sanitation Workers
Waste pickers collect sanitary waste from urban localities without any protective gear. 4 million+ waste pickers in the country struggle to lead their lives with basic dignity and insurance working in precarious conditions that negatively affect their emotional and physical health.
PadCare’s smokeless, harmless, and long-term solution allows you to create a carbon negative impact out of menstrual waste.
Touch-free Padcare bins inserted in individual cubicles shrink the chances of infection and offer women a safer lavatory experience.
PadCare’s modernistic waste management system aims to reform the job of our waste-pickers by making it truly dignified and safe.
Women separate their sanitary waste from general trash at the source level by using PadCare bin.
Our waste-management partners collect the waste when the bin is brimming and drop it at the Central Processing Unit.
Waste is shredded and disinfected through a chemo-mechanical process in the smokeless Unit founded on 5D technology.
Completely harmless, odourless and sterilized recyclable cellulose and plastic material is given a new life.
PadCare is the sweet spot where modern lifestyle meets sustainability.

The Padcare Phenomenon
Carbon emissions reduced
PadCare’s holistic and advanced menstrual waste management system substantially reduces the number of deaths and illnesses caused by air, water and soil pollution that may be induced by otherwise buried or burnt pads.
It also reduces the chances of infections in women who change pads in public toilets and waste-pickers who collect menstrual waste without a protective gear.
PadCare’s privacy-sensitive and circumspect technology contributes to the Goal by enabling women to be more in charge of activities of their own bodies. PadCare also aims to dismantle the binary social construct between men and women by tearing down the taboo against menstruation.
By enabling sanitation, sustainability and safety for womankind, we pursue ultimate equity amongst all genders.
PadCare enables the main objective of this SDG, which is to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for women by providing a safe, touch-less and individualistic sanitary pad disposal machine.
Our schematic approach towards safe waste management also extends sanitation and hygiene amenities for sanitation workers and waste pickers, making it a public health facility in international development.
Sustainability and futuristic development is at the core of PadCare’s vision. We strive to enable and enhance inclusive urbanization for generations to come by safeguarding our air, water and land resources from the plight of contamination and infertility.
Our unprecedented technology allows recycling and resource recovery out of sanitary waste, which is a major step in the direction of global sustainability with participation at the local, individual level.
The Eco Guide says that a year’s worth of typical feminine hygiene products leaves a carbon footprint of 5.3 kg CO2 equivalents. PadCare’s innovation limits sanitary pads to end up in landfills and sewage systems and it also terminates practices of incineration and burial, all of which are proven to cause immense harm to the environment.
We share UN’s vision to take immediate action in order to quantifiably combat climate change and offer the world a cleaner air to breathe.
