Keeping the factors like cost and environment in mind, Amrita Self-Reliant Village (SeRVe) came up with pads made of banana fibre. “It is a naturally occurring absorbent with medicinal properties. Nobody has used banana fibres to make reusable pads. Amma wanted us to do this,” says Anju Bist, Co-Director, Amrita SeRVe. Apart from providing a means of personal hygiene to women, these pads have become a source of income for rural women, who manufacture them under the guidance of Mata Amritanandmayi.
