The happy pad is the first and only Patented biodegradable sanitary pad in Ethiopia. It's a Chemical & Plastic free pad that is degraded after 6 months of disposal. Our Vision is to see the world with Healthy, quality & organic hygiene products.
When I was a campus student, I was able to come across that there were many torn mattresses in our dorm. At the time, I was a general secretary at the Ambo University student union and I had a chance to discuss the issues with the proctors. I was so shocked when I found out that some girls used the ruptured mattress as a sanitary pad every month. Having learned about the challenges that most students were going through as well as experiencing some rashes when I used commercial sanitary pads myself, I could not stop thinking about the idea.
Use of Funds
Our goal is to raise $ 20,000 USD. All funds will be used for the expenses of Happy Pad’s Sample raw materials, packaging, warehousing, marketing, and tests, including laboratory testing, Standard authorization, product assessment, and confirmation.
Any little bit of support for Happy pads is greatly appreciated.
Happy For You, Happy For the Environment!
