Editor’s note: Approx 125kg of sanitary waste is generated per person during their menstruating years and these sanitary napkins can take 500-800 years to break down! #ThePadEffect is a campaign to advocate for sustainable menstruation and prevent thousands of tons of sanitary waste.

We held a tweet-chat on moving from disposable plastic pads to sustainable menstrual products as part of our campaign #ThePadEffect. We discussed sanitary waste, our awareness of the harmful environmental effect of pads, and finally the benefits of alternative menstrual products for sustainable menstruation. Many participants had queries about menstrual products, which our partners answered!
