Eco-friendly sanitary napkins

Little scientists at Kottoor AKMHS school, Kottakkal, made sanitary napkins from water hyacinth (Kulavazha) as a solution to check the growth of the plant which is regarded as the world’s worst aquatic weed. Dried water hyacinth fibre and cotton are used to make the napkin. As the product is made from natural products, these eco-friendly napkins can be turned as compost. E. Aswathy, P.V. Henna Sumi and S. Sreejesh Warrier, a Grade X student, did a detailed study on the possibility of making sanitary napkins from this weed and successfully implemented the project.

The project has won first position in the categories of research type project and teachers project in Malappuram sub district school science fair (Sasthrolsavam). The team has submitted the project report to Health Minister K.K. Shailaja and Agriculture Minister V.S. Sunil Kumar.
