One aspect of women's health that often goes overlooked is menstrual hygiene. In many parts of the world, including Malaysia, women and girls face the challenge of period poverty, which can lead to missed school days, limited job opportunities, and social stigma. This is where Heiko Cloth Diapers & Service comes in, offering a sustainable solution with their reusable sanitary pads.

According to the article written by Esther Ng (March 2024), the elimination of the pink tax in Malaysia is a positive development. However, it won't solve the more significant problem of menstrual product accessibility by itself. Many women, especially those from low-income families, continue to face economic challenges when purchasing sanitary items, even if this tax has been removed. As a result of having to choose between food and menstruation products, some people resort to using towels, old nappies, or even the husk of a coconut as a period product. This product harms their physical comfort and puts their health at risk.

Heiko's reusable sanitary pads are designed for women's comfort and convenience. They are made from high-quality materials that ensure leak-proof protection and long-lasting durability. Heiko Cloth Diapers&Service offers reusable sanitary pads that provide a cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to disposable pads. Using Heiko's reusable pads, women can save money in the long run and reduce their reliance on single-use menstrual products.

Heiko Cloth Diapers&Service plays a crucial role in addressing period poverty in Malaysia, providing women with sustainable and affordable menstrual hygiene solutions that empower them to manage their periods with dignity and comfort.


Investing in reusable sanitary pads not only benefits the environment but also empowers women by providing them with a reliable, affordable, and eco-friendly solution to manage their menstrual cycles. By using Heiko's reusable sanitary pads, women in Malaysia can take a step towards reducing period poverty and accelerating progress towards gender equality.

On this Women's Day 2024, let us remember the importance of investing in women and their well-being. By choosing Heiko's reusable sanitary pads, we can make a positive impact on the lives of women in Malaysia and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future for all.

Happy Women's Day 2024!
