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.
