How long does sanitary napkin take to decompose?
It can take up to 800 years for a commercial menstrual pad, such as Always or Kotex, to decompose because they're made from non biodegradable plastics, synthetics, and heavily treated with preservatives. This is one ns such as organic cotton are switching to options such as organic cotton pads like Natracare or cloth pads like Lunapads which are greener in how they're manufactured as well as decomposing quicker.

Inside most sanitary napkins is some sort of cotton or clothlike layer, an absorbant that turns into gel when it absorbs liquids and other paper like materials mixed together to form that middle layer, that have been bleached, disinfefted with various chemicals and disinfectants, sometimes there are… odorized agents that help mask the odor, and a plastic bottom layer that does not permit any leaks, and the chemical glue that stays on our panties. Sounds good enough, except all of the above cause most women to have rashes, infections, viruses and other gynocological problems. Simply because they are not made of natural materials and provide an amazing environment for all sorts of bacteria and viruses!. There is a solution however!!! Sanitary napkins "Love Moon" are made of 100% cotton, food grade material, even the glue on the bottom is made of the same stuff that is used in chewing gum. They are breathable which provides vetilation, eliminating that hot and web feeling. They are 100 times better absorbant comparing to all other brands we have on the market! There are no chemicals, chlorine, or recycled or remanufactured materials. And best of all each pad contains an Anion Strip - brand new negative ion technology. Negative ions kill 99% of bacteria and viruses that may grow on the pad, eliminating odor, cramps, and any allergic reaction.

TV's are usually recycled; most garbage pickups will not accept electronics so they don't end up in landfills decomposing anyways.
Cardboard, unless it is coated with a wax finish, isbio-degradable. It will decompose in approximately 2-months.Moisture, heat, and the presence of other biological materials willaffect decomposition.
It takes an abnormally long time for aluminum cans to decompose, approximately five hundred years.
A tissue takes approximately six weeks to fully decompose. Inordinary trash, this item is exposed the moisture and air neededfor decomposition to take place quickly.
Technically steel or any other metal does not decompose. If you are referring to corrosion, it will eventually turn into Iron Oxide (rust) over time, but that is largely dependent on atmospheric conditions. The more humidity, the quicker. Less oxygen, slower. In the ocean with the salt water, VERY f…ast. The Titanic at the bottom of ocean cannot be raised due to this. The Titanic is no longer made of steel, but almost entirely of pure rust. The company I work for built half inch thick horses formed from corten (a high quality grade of steel). These figures are expected to still be standing over Vantage, Washington (on I-90) 50,000 years from now. On the other hand, a thin sheet of regular (non stainless) steel agitated in vinegar can entirely rust away within a couple of days. ( Full Answer )
It takes A diaper 355 year for a single baby's diaper to decompose. If you Have a baby,. please recycle all of their diapers! Thanks!
It depends where it is, so it is not possible to find an exact answer. If dry, I guess hundreds of years or never. If moist, but clean, maybe some decades. If moist and dirty, like if it is buried in soil, maybe a 10-30 years. If bright/white cotton is left moist for a few days, you can already s…ee brown spots or mildew on them. ( Full Answer )
Paper in a warm moist landfill will decompose in 2 or 3 weeks. If it is cooler and drier, then it will take longer. Paper will survive in a very dry climate for many hundreds of years (people find old newspapers in the walls of their houses). Stronger paper, like cartridge paper and board will tak…e longer, depending on the thickness and toughness, as well as the moisture and heat mentioned above. It depends on dampness, proximity to soil bacteria, quantity of paper e.g. a thick book or a few pages, if shredded or not etc. Shredded paper scattered in a garden soil disappears in a few weeks. paper takes about 2-5 weeks to decompose. Paper will decompose in a warm damp environment in a few weeks. In a dry environment, paper can remain intact for years. Since it takes several months for wood to biodegrade, paper will only take about a month to biodegrade, because it is made from wood, but it isn't very thick. ( Full Answer )

Basically they don't. A clarification of terms. Decompose is usually reserved for organic materals being educed by microorganisms. A drink can is made of metal so t is not attacked by microorganisms. A drink can is however attacked by water and oxygen from the air. The effect is the same as decom…position. Steel cans rust and corrode away over a fairly short period if exposed to air and water, especially if they have the protective coat is scratched or damaged. Aluminum cans are much more refractory and can last for hundreds of years. This is caused by the "rust" or oxide coat on aluminum being mpervius to air and water, Iron rust is porous so the air and water can reach fresh metal. ( Full Answer )
It varies based on company, materials and what it is composted with. Most recent estimates say 200-500 years.

Many years, depending partly on the chemical conditions in the heap where they are dumped. It depends on the environment. In particularly corrosive environments - say on the salty sea shore in a tropical country, just a few months. But in Antarctica, it will never decompose, it'll stay frozen in t…he ice forever.

In cases like this the phrase "the best" is very unclear and poorly specified. In reality it's probably just as good(or not any worse) than a number of very similar products.
No. The water and/or soap will ruin the absorbant stuff in them, and they'll be stretched out and basically useless.
Chips as in Computerchips are made by various metals, silicone and plastic or ceramics. Buried in ground, the metal may dissolve mostly over many years. Gold filaments present wont decompose naturally, but they do not harm environment either. Plastic and ceramic parts can most likely be found after… thousands of years depending on the conditions where they are buried. I would suppose we do not seriously expect computerchips to decompose in nature. They are ment for recycling and should be handed in to such facilities capable of dealing with them properly.

The advantage of a sanitary napkin would be avoiding messy periods which can truly turn out dirty if no napkin is used. The disadvantages would be that some napkins irritate the skin that can lead to itching and infection. It may also dry up the normal moisture a female has down there since some nap…kins tend to draw too much of the discharges. And if not regularly changed then can lead to infections!

all i know is that if it is lacking the nitrogen i will decompose faster... also it depends on the temperature, if you the thing on a very hot container it will obviously decompose fast, and produce more gas due tu the lack of nitrogen it releases gas.... :D

Only commercial sanitary pads contain gel. The reason is that thegel acts to hold the menstrual blood in the pad so it can containmore, although the gel may be harmful to health which is one reasonwhy many women refuse to use commercial brands that may use gelslike Always or Kotex.

It will depend on the amont of water in or on the fish itself. Other factors may be temperature, type of fish, and or size of fish.
We don't really know. Tampon and pad manufacturers are largely self-regulated and don'tinform customers of what ingredients they use in their products,even the FDA are largely clueless about what is used, so commercialpads like Always or Kotex could contain anything. Some chemicals we know that ar…e present in these types of padsinclude plasticizing chemicals (BPA and BPS), pesticides, bleach,dioxin, petrochemical additives, phthalates, fragrance,formaldehyde releasing preservatives like imidazolidinyl urea, etc. If using menstrual pads it's best to opt for either organic cottonpads such as Cottons or Natracare which are free from any harmfulchemicals, or cloth pads such as Lunapads or gladrags which containno chemicals and are just as safe as your clothing.
