Sirona Teams With UPES Dehradun To Make Pad-free University

This program was led by the Sirona Hygiene Foundation that works on such initiatives that promote sustainable menstruation practices amongst menstruators

Sirona collaborated with University of Petroleum And Energy Studies (UPES), Dehradun to educate their faculty and staff about the benefits of switching to a menstrual cup for period management and  make the varsity India’s first pad-free university.

This program was led by the Sirona Hygiene Foundation that works on such initiatives that promote sustainable menstruation practices amongst menstruators. Dr Aarushi Kehar Malhotra from the foundation spoke to the educators and housekeeping staff at the University and explained to them the importance of sustainable menstruation - how it positively impacts lifestyle, substantially reduces sanitary waste generated and impact on the environment and proves to be a highly economical option for period management.

Sirona first collaborated with the University in 2021  when it 'cupverted' the housekeeping staff at the University and helped them move to menstrual cups for period management. In the second phase now, Sirona worked with teachers and other staff members to make the switch to cups. So far, five hundred individuals have been 'cupverted' in the university.
