Menstrual Product Review – biodegradable Ruth Pads vs. Scented Sofy Centre-in Pads


During Menstruation Month at Alpha Woman, two of our interns – Monica Okochi and Anvi Sethi reviewed two very different period products. Anvi reviewed the environmentally friendly, biodegradable Ruth pads and Monica reviewed the Japanese product, Sofy Center-in pads.

Monica was in Tokyo at the time of this filming so she was able to provide us with an overview on what it’s like to buy period products in Japan, and give us insights as to why the products are developed the way they are. The Interns also discuss the different social aspects that these pads stem from and consequently, their marketing strategies, product packaging and more!

Meet Monica, a Second-year University of British Columbia student studying in the Bachelors of International Economics Program. Growing up as a third-culture child, she began her research exploring the extending influence of globalization along her own associations as the by-product, anchoring her interests into Economics. She believes Economics to be a key participant that interconnects and touches upon many different global issues. Monica hopes to use her intercultural capabilities to dig deeper into the social, economic, cultural, and political agents in gender socialization and advocate the voices of women across the world. She is also a black belt in karate and a tennis player, enjoying her time spent outdoors and always enthusiastic to try something new!
