We provide an environmentally friendly domestic sanitary bin, perfect for new mothers after the birth of a baby
Our disposable sanitary bins are made from cardboard and have a strong, MAF approved biodegradable deodoriser which inhibits any odour, while killing staphylococcus, Hepatitis B and C, ecol i, and deactivates the Aids virus.
They can got to landfill without the contribution of plastic bags. The Disbins can be composted in the Hotrot composter along with disposable nappies, thanks to Ecocom, and in time the composters will be widespread throughout NZ.
