Why gift this Eco-Period Kit?
A perfect gift for your loved ones or for yourself.
A single plastic pad takes hundreds of years and is yet not decomposed completely. Imagine millions of such pads being added to the landfills on a daily basis. Not far is the day when a one-foot deep digging is only going to yield plastic, plastic in all forms, from disposed polythenes to plastic cups to other menstrual wastes. As champions of change - the women of today, you and I, owe it to the community and our planet, to switch over to alternatives that aid in sustainable menstruation.
The solution is simple- to move on to alternatives that are permanent (or at least serve multiple uses), eco-friendly and dependable. Did you know that on average, a woman spends 6-7 years of her life menstruating, and uses more than 11,000 sanitary pads in her lifetime? However, what's shocking is that a normal non-biodegradable pad takes more than 500 years to decompose. Imagine the landfill because of these plastic pads. Our solution is eco-friendly, biodegradable and toxin-free: an Eco-Period Kit.
