To break the taboo around menstruation and to address the existing awkwardness, Roca, along with its CSR wing, We Are Water Foundation India has launched an integrated campaign on World Menstrual Hygiene Day. The brand kicked-off a holistic campaign comprising of various initiatives including a digital campaign for mass awareness, installation of unique pad library for female employees and installation of sanitary pad vending machines across nine schools in rural India for free access to sanitary pads.


Commenting on the initiative, Mayuri Saikia, Marketing Head, Roca Bathroom Products said: “This Menstrual Hygiene Day, our initiative is to sensitise males and apprise them with the challenges faced by women during their menstruation cycle and lending normalcy to it. Being reminded that a woman is menstruating affects the perception of her competence and likeability. Along with sensitisation, Roca has also initiated the concept of keeping a Pad library at workplace and urges other corporates to do the same. Roca along with We are Water Foundation India has also installed sanitary pad vending machines across various schools in the country. We hope that this will be followed by other corporates and industry at large.”


Additionally, the foundation has set up sanitary pad vending machines across nine schools in Bhiwadi, Alwar, Vellore and Chennai to help girls adopt hygienic practices and access free pads to live a healthy life.
