Rentokil Initial Hygiene, the leading hygiene service provider in India, has introduced a unique process to recycle sanitary napkins by launching all new ‘Sani Pro Green’ initiative.

As part of the ‘Sani Pro Green’ process innovation, Rentokil Initial Hygiene will recycle the used sanitary napkins collected in feminie hygiene units from its customers. The recycling process would be performed under LTTD (Low-temperature thermal decomposition) and would not have any hazardous effects on the environment or release any dangerous by-products. The entire process is completely environmentally friendly and is a big step towards the sustainability agenda that Rentokil Initial Hygiene is committed to across the globe.
