Sanitary Napkin Disposal
Improper disposal of sanitary napkins can turn out to be very harmful to the environment. When disposed of inappropriately, most of the chemicals from used sanitary napkins seep into the ground, resulting in groundwater pollution and loss of soil fertility. Burning them also releases toxic fumes into the air, leading to air pollution. Flushing sanitary napkins down the toilet is not helpful either, as it clogs the drainage system.
