Series 1, episode 3 of the Sustainability Champion's Podcast 🎙
Introducing Sparkle ✨
Sparkle’s story, quite fittingly, started with a spark. Founded by Hetal & Chirag Virani.
The social and cultural stigma surrounding periods in Surat, Gujarat, India while she was growing up, sparked Hetal to think about all the hurried whispers, hiding, guilty glances, and the almost shameful image that the society had set for its menstruators.
On the other hand, travelling the world, visiting many countries and experiencing (first-hand) the lack of sanitary products, as well as its physiological and socio-economic effects on millions of adolescent individuals, was the spark that set Chirag on his course.
When Hetal and Chirag came together with different perspectives yet a shared vision, that’s what sparked the inception of their journey to make a positive impact together. After having explored several paths, they’re now both taking the road less travelled by not just developing sustainable and plant-based period products; they’re also aiming to develop new mindsets, new perspectives, new avenues, and new ways of life for menstruators across the globe.
Sparkle pads are made using renewable resources which can help the pad biodegrade quickly after disposal and go back to nature without leaving any toxic residue. Since their pads do not contain plastic or harsh chemicals, you can also compost them in your backyard compost pit.
An inspiring couple, who are the true definition of sustainability champions ❤️👑
