India is home to 35.5 crore menstruating women, the second-highest menstruating population globally. According to a study, around 12.3 billion sanitary pads end up in India's landfills each year, generating 113,000 tonnes of waste, of which 90 percent is plastic from traditional sanitary napkins. The amount of plastic found in each of these sanitary napkins is equivalent to four plastic bags and can take up to 250-800 years to decompose.
However, it is not just sanitary pads that harm the environment, but also the packaging they come in. Throughout her lifetime, a menstruating woman is predicted to throw away roughly 400 pounds of packaging from these products.
In a world where menstrual products result in so much waste, offering an affordable yet sustainable alternative to minimize the impacts on a woman’s health and the environment is imperative. As per a Global Sustainability study, 33% of millennials opt for a sustainable alternative when available as compared to older generations. This is largely due to a lack of awareness and availability of sustainable products in the market.
Reusable pads and menstrual cups are always viable options as they are sustainable alternatives and help reduce waste drastically, but they're not the norm. Many people still prefer single-use options such as sanitary napkins. That's where Niine comes in.
