Woman spend a significant amount of time in their life in period. During that time, each individual consumes more than 7500+ sanitary napkins. Now imagine this number in billions.

It takes 500+ years to dispose of one sanitary napkin. That means, the very first produced sanitary napkin still exists somewhere on earth even today.

That’s a lot of sanitary napkins but there are no specific places to recycle them. We need to recycle them properly. In India, there are 1,200 Crore sanitary napkins used every year.

And you know the worst part of it?

98% of these sanitary napkins go into landfills and water bodies. Which is continuously making the environment around us more polluted.
