The ambassador network

Are you interested in sharing Eco Femme’s vision of eco-positive, dignified, and healthy periods? We invite you become an Eco Femme Ambassador and help change the world one period at a time.

 Eco Femme Ambassadors are individuals who are actively committed to promoting washable cloth pads and revaluing menstruation in their communities through advocacy, education (formal and informal), discussion groups, and/or selling Eco Femme pads.

There are many ways that you can get involved, you can:

  • distribute leaflets and stickers to women in your area
  • share our work on social media (facebook, instagram, etc.)
  • write blog posts
  • fundraise for our Pad for Pad or Pads for Sisters programs
  • host a gathering with family and friends and start a conversation to get the women and men in your life thinking and discussing alternative menstrual products
  • give a short presentation or movie screening followed by discussion on the topic of sustainable menstruation, exploring links between menstrual products and our health, environment and attitudes to waste, or the way media is conditioning our choices.
  • conduct educational sessions at schools or colleges to inform girls about menstrual health, hygiene and sustainable products
  • host a Red Tent or women’s circle for women to share personal stories or use expressive arts (art, music, poetry) to help connect and open up on the topic of our shared experience of feminine embodiment and menstruation
  • create an online advocacy campaign related to our work
  • use days like Menstrual Hygiene DayInternational Women’s Day, Earth Day or World Environment Day to reach out to women through your existing circle of friends, female colleagues, with societies and clubs, on your college campus or other institutions or at fairs and other events
  • sell Eco Femme cloth pads whilst spreading the message of our work

We are happy to work with you to provide you with the resource materials to be an ambassador in your specific context.

We do require that ambassadors be actively engaged with us, documenting and sharing the work you do with us – we’re always happy to help promote future events on social media and we love to share photos or stories of what our ambassadors are doing!

Ambassador ‘Hall of Fame’

Below you can ‘meet’ our ambassadors and see where they are based in the world. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting a number of them when they came to volunteer with us or passed by during a visit to Auroville.

If you see someone in your area, please feel free to reach out and connect.
