A Japanese scholar has developed a sanitary pad and tampon dispenser made of cardboard that can be easily installed in public toilets, after learning some women are reluctant to receive free hygiene goods from local governments.

The flat-pack and easy-to-assemble dispensers could also be used in evacuation centers in the event of a disaster, with the creator, Eri Sugita — an associate professor of international cooperation studies at Osaka University — saying it can be used by “all who need it.”
