The fact is plastic has invaded our lives. And although they are suitable for packaging and transportation, they are highly toxic and harmful to the environment. Many of our personal care products also contain plastic, and one example is sanitary napkins.
Rural women use reusable cloth as sanitary napkins and although environmentally friendly, they are not hygienic. high-quality reusable cotton sanitary pads should be thoroughly washed and dried in the sun, which acts as natural sterilizers.

Reusable pads made of natural fibers and materials such as wool, cotton, bamboo, and hemp are practical and sustainable alternatives to commercially available plastic sanitary pads made of plastics. They act like disposable tampons and are inserted into the female private part.
Another alternative is sanitary napkins made of bamboo pulp, wood pulp, or bamboo charcoal pads, all of which are highly absorbent and safe not only for health but also for the environment.
Women in the countryside now make disposable pads from rotten banana trees in less than a year. Several entrepreneurs are currently working in the field of manufacturing these ecological hygiene pads.
Although plastic-based menstrual hygiene products are available in abundance, it's best to switch to safer natural products that don't contain harmful chemicals or synthetic fibers. Your intimate hygiene is just as important as any other personal care.
