Menstrual period chimes! You experience mood swings, changes in skin texture and all premenstrual symptoms and you know that aunt flow is coming for you. She will stay by another 3-5 days. She will make you pull out an enormous number of pads and everything bloody in business. But do you know, amidst all the pad pulling you are also degrading the quality of earth, adding to the landfill, contaminating water tables and adulterating sea beds. By using sanitary pads, each menstruating female is contributing to dirt, filth and infections along with compromising on the quality of living.
Usually, women get period at the age of 12 and continue so until the age of 42 on an average. Calculating from this, 30 years of menstruating x 12 months a year, we have 360 months to bleed. On average, we use a minimum of 7 pads during each period. This makes it 360×7 = 2,520 pads per woman. Now imagine the population sum and amount of sanitary napkin use. Figures will be devasting. Now imagine the disposal aspect. How harshly will it be impacting the environment?
Switch to reusable and eco-friendly menstrual solutions with a list of these products. Be an Earthwise girl and contribute to protecting mother earth. The bounty bonanza, you can even wear these while swimming or doing water sports.

Sanitary towels, panty liners, and condoms demand unnoticeable disposal. People generally resort to flushing them down the drain or wrapping them in a plastic bag for disposal.
