We believe in a society where all women, men, girls and boys have the same opportunities. We believe that ensuring that every girl and woman has access to quality, safe and environmentally friendly menstrual products is essential to achieve gender equality.
A conventional sanitary pad is up to 90% plastic – that’s the equivalent of four plastic bags and requires about 500-800 years to decompose. On average, a woman will use 11,000 disposable menstrual products, throwing away up to 200kg of period products in a lifetime.
MELA believes in green periods, and this is why we only design, produce and distribute sustainable menstrual products. All our menstrual products and packaging are reusable, and as much as possible made from recycled materials. Our company also has a Zero Waste Production and Sales Policy.
A percentage of MELA’s profits is reinvested in social and environmental projects such as the provision of free menstrual products, the promotion of girls and women’ education and their protection, as well as environmental conservation and protection.
