We are a women's empowerment project. Rising from rural India and reaching the world, promoting menstrual practices that are healthy, dignified, affordable and eco-positive.
Eco Femme works in the area of:
Education: We develop educational resources and work with schools and NGO's facilitating educational programs that foster a responsible, healthy and dignified menstrual experience for girls and women. Education includes yet goes beyond a biological understanding of the menstrual process. It opens a crucial conversation in a way that is respectful of culture while providing a safe space for women and girls to question their menstrual experience, social restrictions and product choice. These conversations build trust and community, and they are vital for reproductive health, as many of the women we work with do not have access to regular checkups, and are unaware of their body’s natural biological functions, i.e. what is considered normal or healthy and what is cause to seek medical attention.
Environment: We produce and promote cloth washable pads, an alternative menstrual product, which lasts for approx 75 washes and can prevent on average 600 disposable pads (each taking 500-800 years to decompose) or tampons from being thrown away during that same time. She also decreases her risk of rashes and yeast infections by using pure cotton cloth, which is soft and hypoallergenic.
