Women in India are unaware of the risks they undergo while they’re on their period. The sanitary pads that are used when women are menstruating are actually a silent health threat.

Every year, 42.6 million women in India disposes off over 7 million sanitary pads, which is a major concern as these pads are non-biodegradable and cannot be recycled.
