Sanitary hygiene refers to the physical, social, spatial and psychological resources, facilities, and products used to manage the collection of blood during menstruation and dignified disposal of sanitary materials.
Sanitary bins can harbour potentially harmful bacteria such as covid-19, HIV and Hepatitis B/C, if not treated correctly. Our Sanitary bins include an e-card, which is a natural anti-microbial product that eradicates bacteria that can enter and grow in a bin, while producing a pleasant fragrance in the surrounding environment. It protects operators and end users from any pathogenic bacteria and prevents any offensive odours from developing at the source.
Period poverty is a real and devastating issue faced by millions of menstruators worldwide. It describes inadequate access to menstrual products, hygiene facilities and menstrual health education. Providing free pads and tampons isn’t just supporting a basic human right, it’s a small price to pay for the comfort and dignity of employees, customers, students and visitors to public washrooms. From stained clothes, to lost work time, public embarrassment and serious health risks, the cost of period inequity can be, quite literally, life-threatening.
