CII-Indian Women Network (IWN) Jharkhand Chapter installs Sanitary Napkin Incinerator at Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya in Potka
As part of an awareness and support campaign about Menstrual Health and Hygiene, CII Indian Women Network Jharkhand proposed to implement incinerators in rural and semi urban schools of Jamshedpur under a year long drawn programme to ‘catch them young’.
Taking this further, IWN Jharkhand installed a Sanitary Napkin Incinerator on 27 September 2019, supported by The ISWP Ltd., at Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya, Potka on the outskirts of Jamshedpur
Ms Happy Mukherjee, Chairwoman, IWN Jharkhand & Head GM Purchase, Tata Cummins Pvt. Ltd. said the initiative is absolutely environment friendly and would help to preserve the cleanliness of Mother earth. Also it will ensure the solid waste disposal will be minimal. The girls present should pass on the message to all their fellow mates. Since the incinerator is an electronic one, students should excise safety precautions during its usage.
