Among the waste generated in daily life, one of the biggest problems containing garbage are used sanitary napkins and diapers because this type of garbage consists of many components of waste. The contact surface is made from plastic. Absorbent fibers are made from paper pulp and organic materials, including infected waste inside.
It is quite difficult to throw away. It must be completely wrapped with paper or a plastic bag. Many people are trying to find a way to recycle but it is not easy. Someone recommended the way of disposal by going to incineration, but the humidity is pretty high. Therefore, almost 100% of this waste type will end up in landfills.
These sanitary napkins contain about 3.4 g. of plastic per sheet. So, 12 billion pieces are discarded per year. It means 40 million tons of plastic are generated each year.
In India, a start-up named Saathi has created 100% biodegradable sanitary napkins made from banana or bamboo fiber, which is the part for absorbing liquid. These sanitary napkins are biodegradable within 6 months under normal conditions. Saathi has received numerous awards, including Time magazine’s The 100 best inventions 2019.
In Thailand, Eco Daily is a sanitary napkin that uses natural materials which are bamboo fibers that are pure, unbleached, and without perfume and other substances that cause allergies. Because of the special innovations, it makes the skin feel soft and comfortable. Various materials are made from nature that can be easily decomposed after use. It will definitely not create garbage for the world.
The bio-plastics that Eco Daily uses are made from plants such as sugarcane, cassava, and corn, so they are easily decomposed by landfills or the process of decomposition in the waste pit. The duration of decomposition depends on the environmental temperature.
When decomposed, it becomes organic matter again, returning to nature. It does not cause accumulated waste and is also environmentally friendly.
