Menstruation is a subject surrounded by silence in India. Often taboos, myths and superstitions associated with it cause much damage to the rights, respect and dignity of women, leading to various forms of violence against them. Disposable pads available in the market are soaked in chemicals and plastic causing much harm to the body and the environment. Most times women are unable to make healthy choices to manage their menstruation due to lack of availability of options. Further, there is an issue with the dignity and safety of the people who manage such waste. They are often looked down upon and have major health threats when dealing with waste such as disposable sanitary napkins, which are often the cause for blocked sewage in drains.
