Have we done justice to our kids ??? Well we have the water day coming up next week and the earth day next month in April , are we living a green lifestyle yet. What have we done to reduce the environment footprint? We all remember the PADMAN movie , based on the real Feminine Hygiene Period Issue , how the affordable pads came to existence and how much it benefited the women giving them the sanitary comfort they needed . Today we are all comfortable using our plastic pads which are so easily available and ready to use and very affordable . but do we wonder whether it is piling up in a landfill or ending up in our precious water , plastic waste is always an issue. A small shift in the consumer mind is much needed and the push towards the use of organic and vegan products.
Women Planet Foundation have initiated a worthy cause by introducing a plastic free product essential and must use for women across India , let’s learn more about them.
Their vision is “Empower Women and you empower the world” . We have taken it upon ourselves to use The PINK PREMIUM Biodegradable Pads not only to save environment but to empower more women by implying manufacturing process with minimum machining.
A Healthy Girl , a Healthy India for every one of those women who are deprived of basic needs , for all those who are less fortunate to have enough information , hygiene and care. Right from providing free education to providing the basic hygiene needs to girls in the rural areas. Women Planet Foundation vows to take care of them through its activities and educational sessions. Every single pack that you buy helps to spread more Muskaan in India !

How to dispose
Wrap the pad in a circle tightly with the stained part inward, seal it in tightly and dispose it easily.
I used the different sizes across the varying cycles of my periods, they did help me remain hygiene and clean through the time. The absorption capacity was quite good. I could use it up-to 6 hours straight on a heavy flow day if I had no options to change. I would of course always suggest to keep changing and not use for a long period but if circumstances are such then this one holds like for a busy day at office etc. For me the plus point was that it was not bulky at all and ultra thin and comfortable to use.
Once used, the disposal was quite easy, paper bags were of good quality and did not tear. The seal needs to be removed only at the time of disposal and not before.
My Final Verdict
It is inspiring to see how these women come together to work towards a common goal which can make a huge difference. If you are someone who has always been wondering how do I as a single person contribute to environment and a people service cause. Well this is the best way, you get these affordable pads which are 100% natural and biodegradable and every pack that you buy funds a woman somewhere in India and helps spread a smile.
