Women's employability model and self-knowledge through sustainable products.


EcoCiclo is the first biodegradable absorbent made by women in Brazil. We believe that sustainability is also caring for people, so we are more than a business model, we are a community of women who generate impact and emancipation for women at risk to develop.
As an initiative led by women, EcoCiclo re-inserts women in the world of work, acting in the promotion of employment and income with the projection of developing their collaborators, who produce are women in a situation of vulnerability, who lead the majority of Brazilian households.
EcoCiclo also works as a portal for self-care and women’s health, creating a support network for its public, accompanying an application to control the menstrual cycle with daily pills, encouraging self-care, health, and self-esteem. Through the application and communication portals, EcoCiclo generates data that will be used for content production and product enhancement.
