I was told these two things are common to all women – guilt and periods.
It was meant as a joke, but it's really quite true.
As a woman I used to feel guilty about lots of things. I felt guilty for being a working Mum, then I'd feel guilty for being a stay at home Mum, taking time enjoy my kids.
We feel guilty for not doing enough to look after ourselves, and then we feel guilty for taking time for ourselves.
Feeling a sense of shame is another negative emotion.
To my mind, that's what a sanitary bin is all about, it's about not being ashamed, not having to conceal sanitary waste.
In some countries girls stay home from school when they have their period, because they lack basic needs like pads and sanitary bins. They miss maybe three days of school per month. That's a lot of learning.
So that's why there is a Disbin disposable sanitary bin. It's about answering a basic need common to all women, period.
