Nazish Mir, a Kashmiri, who studied at the London School of Economics, made her mind to make biodegradable and safe sanitary pads after she attended a lecture there where it was told that a girl died due to a rare and life-threatening complication – Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).

“I was completely moved and started researching menstrual products that are being used across the world and found that Indian women have been using plastic laden pads, a major source of TSS,” she says.

Then along with two friends, she founded LAIQA pads in Kashmir, which she says are different from other commercial pads and are safe.
