A majority of rural women in India employ clothes and rags for feminine hygiene. These materials might predispose women to reproductive tract infections since it may be difficult for them to keep their used napkins clean and free of harmful bacteria. Washing reusable feminine products with soap and drying them in sunlight may be difficult due to lack of water, private facilities, and cultural taboos associated with menstruation. Only 12 percent of Indian women can afford this option. The average woman also is estimated to throw away 125-150 kg of tampons, pads and applicators in her lifetime. This amounts to 433 million such products per month to be discarded in India, experts estimate. However, most of these products end up in landfills or sewage systems because waste pickers are reluctant to separate. SOFIA NGO provides sanitary napkins to women and girls with half rate from the market in association with SHE.
