Plastic-based Sanitary Pads

What are the impacts of using plastic-based sanitary pads?

Most of the sanitary pads available on the market are made up of polypropylene and polyethylene, which are plastics. These pads are bleached with certain chemicals and scented with synthetic fragrances. If you use these sanitary pads for a longer period, it can result in irritation and rashes on your skin. If you are prone to allergies, these plastic sanitary pads can cause swelling, itching, and sometimes pain in the genital area. Over and above, every used sanitary napkin carries two grams of non-biodegradable plastic. So, the amount of non-biodegradable plastic accumulated every month is very high and takes around eight hundred years to decompose. Thus, switching to Organic Bamboo Sanitary Pads is one of the wisest decisions that will change your life and the environment as well.
