Over the last few decades, the period products industry has seen many innovations that have significantly enhanced the performance of period products.
Most of these innovations have primarily focused on either making the product thinner or more high-performing (while reducing the overall cost). The material that has been able to check all these boxes so far has been petrochemical-based plastic; as it is mass produced, it is cost-effective, and from a performance point of view, it can be easily modified/optimized.
Globally, around 300 billion period products made with a large amount of petrochemical-based plastic are used and discarded every year, resulting in millions of tons of non-biodegradable waste that will remain unchanged for 500-600 years in landfills. In the US alone, around 20 billion period products are discarded every year.
At Sparkle, we believe that products should be designed by not only keeping the performance in mind, but by also focusing on the entire product life-cycle. That’s why we have created our products by replacing the conventional plastic in the different layers of the pad with plant-based ingredients. Our products are also engineered in such a way that whether they end up in a landfill, or in an incinerator, or in an industrial composting facility, they offer a more sustainable alternative when compared to their conventional counterparts.
We embrace diversity, equality and inclusion. Through our actions, we aim to become a trusted brand for our customers, the best establishment to work at for our existing team members, the employer of choice for any interested candidates, and the partner of choice for our suppliers and other key stakeholders.
We are committed to doing business in a responsible and sustainable manner. We strongly believe that making thoughtful decisions today is the way to move forward and sustain the environment for future generations to come.
We strive to set the highest standards of transparency and integrity in our organization. From making safe, sustainable and high-quality products to fighting for reproductive equity and donating period products to menstruators in need, we always work towards making the world a better place.
