This paper discusses the level or degree of
awareness people have regarding the environmental
impact of menstrual products. Now a days the most
popular types of products are also considered as the
most detrimental to our natural environment, Especially
due to the amount of hidden plastic in disposable items.
This research tries to find out whether people
understand that this is the case and whether those that
are more aware of the damage are likely to make choices
that are less harmful to the environment. A mixed
approach and initiative were taken, using online surveys
and targeted groups. The findings of the research show
that most participants were not aware of the amount of
plastic used in disposable menstrual products, and that
there are other reasons related to the environmental
impact which people are generally not aware of. Some of
the participants were more aware of the issues and
carrying more knowledge than others and the research
also suggest that the participants with a higher
awareness are more likely to choose products which are
less harmful and less dangerous to the environment.
Based on these results, future precaution and areas of
further research are suggested.
