Product Description

Anandi, is India’s first ~100% compostable, high quality sanitary napkin available in the low-cost market which provides women and girls in rural villages and urban slums a more environmentally sustainable solution.

The use of sterilized, disposable sanitary napkins, such as Anandi, prevents infections, illnesses, and the spread of diseases such as cervical cancer, and labour complications, all of which claim thousands of lives each year.


Many women are not able to use sanitary napkins due to the high costs of commercial brands. One pack of 8 compostable Anandi pads sells for INR 30 and the profit margin is returned to Anandi’s women entrepreneur 


Due to Aakar's mission to set up production units in rural villages and urban slums, Aakar's dedicated workers and women entrepreneur are able to produce and distribute Anandi pads throughout their own villages and homes breaking the accessibility barrier.

~100% Compostable

The compostable Anandi pad is produced with locally sourced agriwastes. It is fully compostable and aimed at solving rural and urban disposal issues all while ensuring environmental sustainability.
