About PadCare

We push our boundaries every day, we’re here to innovate and inspire a new generation of sustainable sanitation technology. PadCare isn’t a startup, it’s a revolution. Ajinkya, a 20-something mechanical engineering student was on a long overdue, restful weekend getaway with his college friends near the city of Pune. They were relishing in the deep, flourishingly green and fairly uncrowded woods, when suddenly and unexpectedly, they witnessed a vile image. A bunch of used sanitary napkins hung from a Jambul tree on a cliff, blotting a picturesque view of nature as if to symbolize the pervasive and damaging consequences of modern lifestyle. Ajinkya got the better of this alarming incident. When he came back to college, he embarked on a new journey altogether - the journey of bringing about positive and significant changes in the menstrual waste disposal system with a larger vision of safeguarding our women, our waste pickers and Mother Earth. That’s how PadCare was born. Soon, the team grew and we became a small family of curious, ambitious, and dedicated young achievers working for something much, much bigger than us.
