What are EcoWings?
EcoWings is a livelihood program of Project Propel and focuses on equiping and empowering women from vulnerable communities in Metro Manila and surrounding areas.
EcoWings are an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective alternative to disposable menstrual pads.
Each EcoWing is sewn and handcrafted with love by a team of dedicated women.
How are EcoWings Made?
Each EcoWings are handcrafted using FOUR main materials:
Cotton. The colorful outer designs are made of 100% pure cotton.
Flannel. A softer flannel material was chosen for the inner aspect of the EcoWing that is in contact with the skin.
Fleece. Two layers of this ultra absorbent material are stitched inside each EcoWing.
Leak-proof Material (PUL). Between the outer cotton layer and the fleece is a thin layer of PUL, which prevents any unwanted leaks from occuring.
A dedicated team of women produce each EcoWing!
