PadCare Labs started this petition to Government of India and

12 Billion Sanitary Napkins are generated annually in India and 98% of these go to landfills and waterbodies. It takes 800 years to decompose a single sanitary napkin. Incineration (Burning) is currently adopted but it has various demerits like smoke, smell and their adverse effects on health can lead to cancer in the long run.

The other issue that women usually face is the unavailability of a hygienic disposal facility at source. The Sanitary napkins are collected along with dry waste and waste pickers have to manually segregate this waste using their bare hands. Imagine the health hazards it causes.

The Sanitary napkins are made up of Cellulose, Plastic and Super Absorbent Polymer. What if we adopt a circular economy based approach for disposal of Sanitary napkins? 

We at PadCare with a vision to shape sustainable societies by enhancing hygiene standards , have developed world's first smokeless sanitary napkin disposal and recycling system to serve women and children through Institutional Organizations like Education Institutes, Corporates, Housing Societies , Airports, Malls etc. 

Sign this petition to provide a safe disposal facility to each and every women and for safeguarding the environment against plastic pollution.
