In this post we’d like share Sneha’s story about why she chose Eco Femme’s reusable pads over the disposables.
First, a little bit about this wonderful lady.
Sneha is a Palliative physician at MNJ Institute of Oncology, Hyderabad, India. She holds transformative workshops through art, play and dialogue in areas such as sexual healing, trauma recovery and creativity and also designs products for her company Aynu.We feel very fortunate that we crossed paths with this inspirational lady and that we could share her story with you. Sneha is also the founder of Orikalankini, which is a charity organisation that educates women from all ages about menstruation and breaks the social taboos, representing the beautiful side of our cycles.
Revolucia: How did you first hear about Eco Femme’s reusable pads?
Sneha: From a good friend of mine, Anita, who was volunteering at Eco Femme. During the time I was volunteering at Sadhana Forest, which is a reforestation eco-friendly project in Auroville, India. My time there brought me closer to nature and started the healing process within myself. When I found out about the damage which each disposable pad causes to the environment (one takes 800 years to decompose in a landfil), making the switch was just the sensible thing to do.
Revolucia: How did the switch influence your lifestyle?
Sneha: It actually inspired me to look at the spiritual basis of exclusion of women from mainstream religion myths of Goddesses like Lilith, so I designed workshops that address all of those.
Revolucia: That sounds very interesting, tell us more.
Sneha: The workshops are a part of the core activities of my organisation, Orikalankini, and educate women from all ages how to embrace the beauty of their period.In fact, we are very grateful to Eco Femme, for being our partner throughout this journey, providing support and cloth pads and we are very happy that Revolucia is distributing and spreading the word about Eco Femme’s great products in Europe.
Revolucia was created in 2017 with the aim of supporting the Zero Waste movement and distributing alternatives to non-recyclable disposable plastic products. We are supporters of the slow fashion and the conscious consumption. We love sharing our tips and experience through our Blog and talks.
