Coimbatore: Having dealt with several health problems due to the use of ordinary sanitary pads available in the market, Ishana, an 18-year-old in Coimbatore was inspired to produce eco-friendly and reusable cotton sanitary napkins.
Ishana manufactured the cotton pads at a small set up she had that includes sewing machines and other essential equipments.
"Chemical gel in ordinary sanitary napkins poses health hazards to women. The sanitary napkin I have developed is made with layers of cotton cloth. It is reusable and eco-friendly," she said.
