LOW-CARBON SUSTAINABLE

Non-chemically treated bamboo and canvas, replacing tree-timber as the key material for classroom furniture.

SeatPack requires no tree-cutting to make classroom sitting and writing surfaces, conserving tree cover in the process.

MENSTRUAL HYGIENE

Each SeatPack has a sanitary wet pocket for female students to tend to their menstrual hygiene without needing to miss school to do so discreetly. 

Most girls miss up to 20% of the school year due to absence while in their period. This increases the gender gap over the long term.
