It opened floor for discussion on sustainable alternatives to commercial plastic-loaded sanitary pads, highlighting the health as well as environmental impacts of these pads.

Reusable cloth pads are healthier and environmentally safe option to manage menstruation effectively. Being made of cotton and flannel cloths, these ensure proper air circulation to the genitalia, maintaining the natural environment.
