Our opinion: we love the fact that these washable towels are ethically traded and that EcoFemme support a 'Pad for Pad' programme (see below). They are soft and comfortable and stay in place better than other brands we've tried.
Beautiful, soft, absorbent flannel cotton top layer (against the skin), absorbent inner core of cotton flannel layers, PUL leakproof layer and exotic Indian stripy fabric on the back (aginst the underwear).
Easy to care for – the PUL layer is designed to last for approx 75 washes (up to 5 years)

Eco Femme products are made by a women's empowerment project in India, which also works to educate and inform local women about their menstrual cycle. For every Eco Femme pad we sell, £1 has been donated to the Eco Femme Pad 4 Pad project, funding free reusable menstrual pads for Indian schoolgirls. This enables them to continue their education. Sadly, the onset of menstruation and lack of suitable products to use is still a leading cause of girls dropping out of school in poorer areas. See the Ecofemme website for more information.
