Eco femme -who are they and what they do?

What is Eco femme?

Eco femme is a social organization for women that aims at educating and implementing healthy, hygienic, environment-friendly and clean recommendations for menstrual periods. Working from Auroville, South India, an internationally identified vibrant team of women pursue their service for an honest, most essential, need-of-the-hour cause.

What do they do?

The primary focus of the network is to save the ecosystem from non- decomposable anion sanitary pads.
Registered and launched in the year 2009, a simple and striking idea of reusable cloth pads was figured by the Co-founder of the Group Kathy Walkling. The organization employs a set of financially weak yet skilful women tailors for stitching the cloth pads. Other than just tailoring they enjoy the work by trying the product in different designs and colours. The management team conducts campaigns, seminars and workshops in various developing districts throughout the country. 

Why reusable pads?

Eco femme products are not the same as the normal polypropylene menstrual pads since it is easy to wash and completely made of cotton. It proves to be the best solution for below-addressed problems. The following are the compelling reasons to use cloth pads.
  • Sanitary pads available in the market takes nearly a number of decades to decompose which poses a serious threat to the biosphere.
  • Women in rural area still wear unhygienic trash cloth materials supported by a belt-like thing during their menstrual period which is very unpleasant and insecure.
  • Popular brands are expensive to use for a nominal waged family woman.
  • Any woman who worries for polluting the neighbourhood can take a first step towards protecting Mother Nature.

How to use cloth pads?

Using cloth pads dates back to centuries in India. But the issue is how is it used.  Washing immediately after use, drying it in the Sun and storing it separately are strongly recommended practices. Soaking for 30 minutes and cold or warm water wash guarantees a clean, stain-free and odourless stuff.
