In April we completed the 4th year of our Pad for Pad program. Our target was to reach 6000 girls and we reached 6905 instead!

This year we've set a target of reaching 7500 girls both locally & with our growing number of implementation partners throughout India.

Check out our Pad for Pad 2016-17 report to read more about our previous year and our plans for the year ahead.

A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have supported our program!
Organic cotton - produced without synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, printed at MRC mills in Tamil Nadu, South India.
Pad stitching by women tailoring groups, this is at 'Cocoon' in Sanjeevnagar, 3 km from our office.
More hand work: screen printing of the packaging by Shanmugam.
Pads are ready to go! Packaging by Vasuki and Sudha at our office.
Our friend & ambassador, Rajasi opened a cloth pad of ours which she had been using for the past two years...look at how clean and white those inside layers are!
This shows that the inside layers of cloth pads can be kept perfectly clean and hygienic. You can see her full Facebook post here.

Why Organic?
We're passionate about sourcing and producing quality pads as ethically as possible.  Read more about Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification HERE.
In April, Cassidy, Marnie & Amy drove 2600km from Jaisalmer (Rajasthan) to Cochin (Kerala) in a custom painted rickety rickshaw for Eco Femme as part of the infamous Rickshaw Run. They raised awareness of our work & also raised a cool 650 Canadian dollars for our Pad for Pad program! This buys 355 pads which will be distributed to 88 girls during menstrual education sessions in government schools! Thank you!
In May we teamed up with Feminism In India (FII) as well as other leading brands in a month long campaign on sustainable menstruation in the lead up to Menstrual Hygiene Day on the 28th. This campaign generated some fantastic articles, head over to our BLOG for a full list of links.
