Cloud Pads provides disposable Period Pads that are healthy, yet 100% biodegradable and compostable, using innovative eco-materials. The Cloud Pad is formed by three layers: a top layer of soft organic cotton, a middle layer of highly absorbent and healthy banana fiber, sealed to a waterproof bioplastic base layer using eco-friendly adhesives.
The final solution is meant to reduce waste by transforming banana pseudo-stems, usually discarded and burnt in banana plantations, into a highly absorbent and hypoallergenic material.
Due to a 100% plant-based composition that is highly performant, the pads are fully biodegradable and can be used in composting. Additionally, the technology used to build the pads can be extended to baby diapers in the future.
Cloud targets menstruating women between the ages of 12 and 50 by offering them a healthier and more ecological solution while also keeping their menstrual habits in mind.
The team is working on an online subscription plan model and making the product available in vending machines in schools, public bathrooms, and restaurants. Their expansion plan is to enter the Middle Eastern Market through Dubai and the rest of the UAE, and eventually the European market with a biodegradable pad that is cheaper than the available competition.
