Meerut’s Aminabad UP’s First “Sanitary Pad-Free Village”

Sanitary Pad Free

Meerut: On the occasion of World Menstrual Hygiene Day, MildCares, a start-up incubated by the Startup Incubation and Innovation Centre (SIIC), IIT Kanpur, achieved a landmark feat by distributing their GynoCup Menstrual Cups in Aminabad aka Baragoan village. This initiative successfully transitioned the village’s women to menstrual cups, paving the way for its official declaration as Uttar Pradesh’s first “sanitary pad-free village.”

This groundbreaking achievement marks a significant stride towards improved menstrual hygiene management, environmental sustainability, and women’s health empowerment in the region. MildCares’ GynoCup offers a reusable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly alternative to disposable sanitary pads.

Menstrual cups provide several advantages over sanitary pads. They are not only cost-effective and environmentally friendly but also offer a safer and more hygienic option. By reducing dependence on disposable pads, menstrual cups can significantly decrease the risk of infections and promote better menstrual health.

MildCares’ pioneering initiative in Aminabad Urf Baragoan serves as a beacon of hope, paving the way for a future where menstrual hygiene, environmental consciousness, and women’s health go hand-in-hand.
