POLYNOR cares about women's issues, the environment and we are committed to sustainable development. So, when our paths crossed with AFRIpads, we decided to support this Ugandan social business by partnering with them.
Not only does AFRIpads’ reusable design lower cost to a third of disposable pads, it significantly reduces the impact on the environment due to the reduced waste by using these pads.
AFRIpads is a social business that specializes in the local manufacture and global supply of reusable sanitary pads as a cost-effective, feminine hygiene solution. AFRIpads’ unique business model creates empowerment and value-add in both the manufacturing and distribution of the product.
All AFRIpads products are manufactured locally in Uganda, where over 200 people - 96% of whom are women - have gained meaningful employment.
To date, AFRIpads has enabled over two million women and girls to live more hygienic, comfortable and productive lives through our simple product innovation.
These products are distributed by NGOs and international relief agencies around the world, as well as by direct consumer purchases in Uganda.
