Author(s): Vaishali Nagar
This study was carried out to understand the level of awareness, drivers, and barriers concerning the purchase and use of biodegradable sanitary napkins among women. This study further analyzed the satisfaction level of women using biodegradable sanitary napkins and gathered suggestions for improving the acceptability of the same. The study was carried out in the regions of the national capital Delhi. This study incorporated women using biodegradable and synthetic sanitary napkins for understanding the comparative perspective of both the stakeholders. The study revealed that instead of being aware of the harmful effects of synthetic sanitary napkins women are not willing to shift towards biodegradable sanitary napkins because of the high cost and low availability. Also, the study revealed that in recent 1-2 years only women have shifted towards biodegradable sanitary napkins because of their better availability on online platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, and other brand- specific online buying sites. The study concluded that easy availability and affordability can bring positive changes in the acceptability of biodegradable sanitary napkins among women and the shift towards biodegradable sanitary napkins can reduce the burden of managing non-biodegradable wastes and overflowing landfills due to huge amounts of synthetic sanitary waste generated every year.
