About the Practice
Problem Statement:

Annually 12 bn used sanitary napkins get generated in India from which 98% goes to water-bodies & Landfills. It takes 800 years to decompose single sanitary napkins, 60% Indian women face UTI and 23% rural students drop out from school every year due to unavailability of disposal at washroom. Current practices lead to harmful environmental consequences & also entail long term economic burden. Currently, only scientific method to dispose of the soiled sanitary waste is incineration which is expensive to build, operate, and maintain. The high costs associated with this method of waste disposal may encourage waste generators to seek other alternatives like land-filling, dumping for dealing with their waste.
