Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
Dia Mirza became an UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India. Gorgeous beauty Dia Mirza has been committed to raising awareness about environmental issues facing the world.
Recently, Dia made a huge revelation that she does not use sanitary napkins anymore during her periods.
Dia said that she does not use because of their harmful effect on the environment.
She also said to media that, The Sanitary napkins and diapers in our country are polluting the environment on a larger scale and that's why during periods I have stopped using sanitary napkins. As an actor, if I am saying this then it is a big thing because we also promote sanitary napkins. Whenever I get offers of sanitary napkins promotions, I clearly deny them.
She is absolutely right and creating awareness for biodegradable options that are available aplenty in India. Menstrual pollution and the waste from used sanitary napkins is harming our environment very badly. Now she started using biodegradable napkins that do not leave carbon footprints.
She said, "Now I use biodegradable napkins that get destroyed 100 percent naturally. In our country, women are using cotton during periods for a long time but now many options have come that are bad for the environment. The women in India should stop using sanitary napkins and should use protective and secured biodegradable napkins."
Each woman generates up to 125 kg of non- biodegradable waste through a menstruation year alone.
A survey was conducted in the year 2011 which reveals 9000 tonnes of menstrual waste - mainly used sanitary napkins - is generated in India every month.
So, all girls stop using sanitary napkins and start using Biodegradable napkins. This will be a revolution.
