MiscellaneousBy Onlymyhealth editorial teamMay 26, 2023

28th May is observed as menstrual hygiene day which is celebrated to raise awareness regarding menstrual hygiene. While we talk about access to menstrual products and their right usage, disposal of these is also an issue that is often overlooked. It is advised that you always cover the used sanitary pad, tampon or panty liner in the provided disposable bag or a tissue paper and then throw them in designated bins. Never put menstrual waste in biodegradable waste bins. A lot of places have started to keep pad bins to discard menstrual waste in order to keep them separate.
