ECOPADS AUSTRALIA is a social enterprise supporting womens' and girls' education, empowerment and environmental projects.
From the living room...
In late 2015, founder of Ecopads, Freeda Thong, started sewing cloth pads as a hobby after discovering the initially unfamiliar object on her sisters' wall. Her curiousity led her to research cloth pad usage and discovered pressing issues of menstruation around the world. Click here to find out why you should make the switch to cloth!
After growing demand for her hand made cloth pads, Freeda started ECOPADS AUSTRALIA, a social enterprise with the ONE for ONE initiate to provide cloth pads for women in need and stand for women's health, choice and pride.
... to a global movement.
In March 2016, Ecopads was accepted into an accelerator program through IMPACT Academy, a social enterprise in itself that help other entrepeneurs make ideas and dreams happen. Ecopads has partnered with EcoFemme for a crowdfunding campaign over this May to produce cloth pads for customers and deliver cloth pads to women in need wherever they may be.
Our cloth pads are made with love and hold our core values; to protect the environment, provide education on menstruation and empower women on a global scale.
