It’s High Time That We Switch

The Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has always remained in the heart of people either for her acting in ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ or for her beauty. Though she is 36-year-old it seems like she is aging like a fine wine. Mirza being the UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India has always made sure that she does her bit in raising the awareness regarding the environmental issues we all are facing.


In the recent UN meeting, the actress said that she no more uses sanitary napkins when she’s menstruating or during her periods.

“The Sanitary napkins and diapers in our country are polluting the environment on a larger scale and that’s why during periods I have stopped using sanitary napkins. As an actor, if I am saying this then it is a big thing because we also promote sanitary napkins. Whenever I get offers of sanitary napkins promotions, I clearly deny them” she said.


I think she makes a valid point. Menstrual pollution caused by used sanitary napkins is really harming our environment.

Dia further added that “Now I use biodegradable napkins that get destroyed 100 percent naturally. In our country, women are using cotton during periods for a long time but now many options have come that are bad for the environment. The women in India should stop using sanitary napkins and should use protective and secured biodegradable napkins”


Bravo, Dia, you are a true inspiration 🙂
