A livelihood program for women in our
communities, producing eco-friendly
What are Eco-Wings?
Eco-Wings are an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective alternative to disposable menstrual pads.
Each Eco-Wing is sewn and handcrafted with love by our team of dedicated women. Eco-Wings is a livelihood program of Project Propel and focuses on uplifting women in disadvantaged communities in Metro Manila and surrounding areas. The production and purchase of Eco-Wings helps to provide a stable income for these women and their families.
REDUCE HEALTH RISKS. Eco-Wings are made from cotton blend fabrics that are breathable and hypoallergenic with no harmful chemicals that are often found in disposable menstrual pads. It is much better for women’s health to use products made from non-toxic materials on these soft and sensitive areas.
REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT. Women use and throw away about 10,000 menstrual products throughout their lifetimes. Reusable cloth menstrual pads save all that plastic going into the landfill and into our oceans.
REDUCE COSTS. Women can spend up to P25,000 on their periods in the course of their lifetimes. Using Eco-wings can drastically reduce this cost!
Buy One, Give One Campaign
The purchase of an Eco-wing set will go further than benefiting the consumer.
For every Eco-wing set purchased, Project Propel commits to providing one complete free Eco-wing set to a woman in the communities we work with. These Eco-wing sets for our beneficiaries will also contain information packets on women’s health education including menstrual hygiene and reproductive health.
