We must bring you the best from the ocean of products in India to maintain your sustainable lifestyle healthily and fashionable. Moreover, we care for you ladies and your babies.
They say, "knowledge is good, but half knowledge can be dangerous."
Throughout this era, we've been told that using cloth is harmful while you are menstruating, and we were pushed or encouraged toward using pads and tampons. But do you know? Even pads and tampons aren't healthy for you and the environment during the time of the month.
We all believe that modern techniques or ways can't beat some traditional ways of living a healthy lifestyle. Eco Femme brings the traditional and revitalizing way of menstrual practices, which are also healthy, affordable & eco-friendly. Eco Femme was founded in 2010, is a women-led social enterprise based in Tamil Nadu, India. The brand produces and sells washable cloth pads, provides menstrual health education, and opens dialogues on menstruation all along the way.

Pad for pad programmes: menstrual health education and free pad gifting programmes to adolescent girls.
Pad for sisters programme: affordable and discounted cloth pads for menstrual health education and process to introduce cloth pads to marginalized women
Training of trainers: To provide training to menstrual health facilitators/educators
