JAMMU: Rotary Club of Jammu City (RCJC) and Eco-Femme India organised an awareness programme at Government Girls School, Gandhi Nagar; National Institute of Fashion Design and Jammu Municipal Corporation here on Wednesday.
Sofia Moradas, Eco-Femme Ambassador was the key speaker. She said “Eco – Femme produces and promotes washable cloth menstrual pads, an alternative menstrual product, which lasts for approx 75 washes. Cloth menstrual pads are rapidly gaining acceptance around the world for their health, environmental and cost saving benefits. A woman who switches from using disposable to reusable menstrual pads can prevent an average of 600 disposable pads from being thrown away during a five-year period.”
K.B Magotra President, RCJC, said “Eco Femme pads are certified by Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) as made of organic cotton flannel which is not only reusable but when cared for properly, can reduce the risk of infections and irritation. Women in J&K shall be benefitted enormously from its use as it is an environment friendly concept”.
Anil Swaraj (PP), the Project Director, RCJC said “Soon a core committee of woman Rotarians shall be appointed to take forward the production of eco-femme pads locally in Jammu.”
Rinku Gill, President Civic Safai Karamchari Union appreciated the innovative project of RCJC. He expressed happiness that pads are offered free of cost to girls belonging to economically weaker sections.
