This device offers an environment-friendly way to dispose sanitary napkins
When women around the world buy disposable sanitary pads, the least of their concern is where the discarded pads will eventually end up. Therefore, billions of non-compostable sanitary napkins find their way into our sewerage systems and landfills each year, creating a huge environmental hazard and health risks.
Now two leading Indian scientific institutions have come together with a private partner to launch a new high tech device called ‘GreenDispo’ that ensures that the growing popularity of sanitary napkins become less of an environmental nightmare.
GreenDispo is designed such that it will incinerate sanitary napkins completely, with minimal gas emission. It is estimated that 432 million pads are already being disposed of every month in the country and this is expected to grow multi-fold in the coming years.
