There is still a big problem: how about disposal of used napkins? The machine purveyors need to also provide containers for used napkins, otherwise they will end up littering public spaces instead of going into some kind of composting set-up.
I saw this in Dhaka, in what used to be pleasant Ramna Park, where at night women tossed their used napkins any old place around the space there for all to encounter when roaming the park in the daytime. My guess is that the women who did this were probably sex workers who had to meet clients at night and knew how to hide from chokidars, if there actually were any.
In fact, the inventor should also invent disposal bags that will biodegrade in compost for the women to stow used napkins in until it’s convenient for them to dump them in the compost collector. Why? Because of the plastic bag menace, now carpeting Asia from west to east and north to south!

The innovator as of now is mainly engaged in the commercialization of his technology so that women at large can benefit. Without letting the best be the enemy of better he is to the best of his capacity offering a hygienic solution for women who would otherwise use unhygienic rags during their menstruation periods. If you have any idea about the solution pertaining to the issue that you mentioned or if you know anyone who has some idea please let us know.

Dear L Chinzah
This dispenser idea is just the ticket for people who can afford the price. As for remedies for the disposal problem, the NIF should consult paper makers to learn if they make a paper, or if they CAN make a paper bag that is strong enough to hold the used articles but that can also disintegrate in compost bins.
Then an educational campaign can be started in connection with the marketing of the disposal machines to educate users how to dispose of the used napkins. This will take initiative and searching. Indians are very enterprising and inventive. I believe you can find the right paper for this purpose.
Also, here is what may seem to be a weird idea but it is common in some areas of the world with people who like everything organic, and it works: earthworms. The red earthworm (the kind fishermen use to catch fish with) can be used to destroy wastes of animal and vegetable origin, in bins where they live and multiply. Their castings can be used as excellent fertilizer in growing veggies. If they are used as the composting medium, nothing that has pesticides on it should be put in their bins.
Please see this website: http://www.cityfarmer.org/wormcomp61.html
and here: http://www.ehow.com/about_6117206_worm-composting-hawaii.html they say:
“The India Blue worm is a small, tropical earthworm that typically doesn’t grow over 3 inches in length. The India Blue worm possesses a distinctive blue body sheen…”
