Reusable Menstrual Pads for Girls Living in Poverty
Flo aims to help poor young girls manage their monthly period discreetly so as not to disrupt their schooling
Girls living in poverty not only have to deal with financial woes. When their menstrual period starts, it creates a problem for 12-year-old girls who go to school without the means to buy and use disposable sanitary pads. Mariko Higaki Iwai from the Art Center College of Design developed Flo, a menstrual pad design that will allow the girls to use reusable pads and wash them easily.
