Talk about Eco Femme and Eco pro

Program by :

Celia, a volunteer working with Eco Femme (started by two aurovilians and now carried on by 13 more people) talked about the initiative taken in the field of Sustainable Menstruation. She gave the details of how our recent sanitary pads (which are made of 90% plastic) usage is affecting the environment and how its going to affect in future as they cannot be decomposed atleast for hundreds of years. She talked about the products of Eco Femme, the usage of all of them and how they are sustainable as they do not contain plastics and can be reused. She explained the need to spread awareness in the field of menstruation and also asking people to be the Eco Femme ambassador to aware people about healthier menstrual practices and to help the initiative reach its goal.
It was followed by the talk of Dr. Lucas (of EcoPro) who works in the field of hygiene. He introduced the idea of Dry Toilets and talked about the importance of dry toilets, its usages, solid waste management and how the waste can be used in farming which will reduce the use of various chemicals. He also talked about EM (effective micro organisms) developed for farming, crop cultivation, improve quality of yields and later it was discovered that it can be used for waste water treatment and sanitation as it curbs smell and keep it clean. He had also faced various challenges in the way of carrying his idea forward but still continuing with it for better environment.
