Kathmandu: Nepal CRS Company has announced the launch of a biodegradable sanitary pad under the brand name “Freedom” in Dadeldhura of Sudurpaschim province.

The pads are 100% oxy-biodegradable and have passed the bio-degradability test (certified under ISO 17088 Standard/ IS 5405 Standard). Unlike normal pads, these pads have the ability to decompose and prevent harmful effects on the environment, it said in a statement.

“The pads are super absorbent with cottony feel and wings to wrap to avoid side leakage. Each pack of “Freedom” consists of 8 pads (235 mm in size), and display instructions to use, store and dispose in the outer packaging,” reads the statement.
