With the environmental problems that we hear and read everyday. It is time for us women to do something to help in reducing these problems. Presently, millions of girls/women use feminine hygiene products such as sanitary napkins, tampons, applicators, etc. We often use tissue paper to wrap our used feminine products before we dispose them in the trash bins or we flush them at the toilet bowls. These actions could lead to adverse effects to the environment.
Statistically, an average female uses more toilet paper than a male does. An average female would consume 450 rolls of toilet paper throughout their lifetime for the disposal of used feminine hygiene products alone. Just imagine how many trees are cut down to produce toilet papers. These resources are wasted because of the toilet paper that we use to wrap the used feminine hygiene products. Everytime we flush down the toilet these used products will go to the sewers and may cause drainage blockages. These blockages may overflow and may pollute the marine life.
There is a great product that can help us women do a proper disposal of the feminine products that we use and that it is very Earth-friendly. Use Sani Sac, a sanitary, sealable, degradable plastic bag. It provides a more discrete, safe and sanitized disposal of menstrual products. It will reduce accidental contact to germs because the used products are safely sealed in the bag. Sani Sac will also reduce the unpleasant smell of menstrual waste in the bathroom trash can. These bags bags degrade and oxo-biodegrade which is very earth friendly. Visit their site www.GoldenGroupInternational.com for more information. Each of us can make a big difference if we will do our own share in saving Mother Earth!
