My Review :
Why these sustainable pads?
The average conventional sanitary pad contains 3.4g of plastic. A woman uses more than 7500 sanitary pads in her lifetime. This means that over her lifetime, the average woman will generate approx 23kg of plastic from sanitary pads alone. Woah! Instead of them, you can use a biodegradable pad – which brands like Carmesi offers – The decomposition of Carmesi pads starts in about a year of disposing them off. Now, Isn’t that awesome?
So girls, experience a clean, happy and guilt-free period with Carmesi. Watch a beautiful video here
About Carmesi :
Each Carmesi pad comes with a chic resealable completely biodegradable disposal bag, for the convenient disposal of your pad after use.
The top-sheet of Carmesi pads is made of corn starch, & corn starch is a natural soother for skin irritations. This makes the pads remarkably gentle, irritation-free, & soft on the body. The absorbent core of Carmesi pads is made of bamboo fiber. Naturally absorbent, anti-bacterial, & odor-resistant, bamboo makes the Carmesi pads anti-bacterial in nature. And the bottom layer is made with corn-based bioplastic.
Unlike conventional pads that do not degrade, thus contributing to thousands of tonnes of waste, our pads AND the disposal bags are completely biodegradable. Carmesi pads break down naturally and create biomass which is not harmful to nature or insects. The decomposition of these pads starts in about a year of disposing of them. Detailed FAQs here
