careU is a sustainable postpartum care kit designed for new moms in Zambian rural areas. It aims to reduce the maternal mortality rate by providing ways of staying hygienic after giving birth, therefore lowering the risk of postpartum infections. Many women in Zambia lack access to health care and must resume field work shortly after giving birth - increasing the risk of a potentially lethal infection. careU meets the needs of these women while respecting cultural and environmental concerns, leveraging a circular product-service ecosystem that reduces negative impacts on the environment while creating local employment opportunities for the surrounding community.
