The beautiful Hindi film actress Dia Mirza who is known for her stint in the film ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ is the UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India. The 36-years-old actress is known not only for her elegance and beauty but also for her social awareness programs. Dia always makes sure to create and raise awareness regarding the issues of the environment. Lately, she made a revelation that demands an attention of the society.
Dia attended the recent UN meeting as the UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India where she accepted that she no more uses sanitary napkins 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.”
Her point about the pollution caused by used sanitary napkins is a valid one:
“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.”
What do you think girls over the revelation and reason given by Dia Mirza for not using sanitary napkins?
