Aruna is revolutionizing menstrual health by creating compostable menstrual pads using natural fibers from food and crop waste. Their circular economy model aims to prevent billions of pads and tons of food waste from entering the landfill, where they would have released harmful microplastics and greenhouse gasses into the environment. Instead, the food and crop waste is converted into soft and safe fibers for menstrual pads, using Aruna’s patent pending technology. The startup has received nods from various government granting agencies and is developing a pilot plant to begin production.
