320,000 amazing people have signed our petition to end Tampon Tax. In March 2016, we made history when the Parliament accepted a tampon-tax-ending amendment proposed by the amazing Paula Sherriff MP. Tampon Tax will now be axed by April 2018 at the very latest. That sucks. But We're on it.
Supermarkets are joining our protest to ensure Tampon Tax ends in 2018. Both Tesco and Waitrose have pledged to drop the price of their period products (including tampons, sanitary pads and panty liners) by 5%. They're paying Tampon Tax so that we don't have to!
This is HUGE! By dropping the price of period products, supermarkets help our protest against Tampon Tax, smash the period taboo and fight period poverty. Period!
It would be amazing to see ASDA, Morrisons and Sainsbury's follow Tesco and Waitrose in dropping their period prices by 5% until the gov drop the tax. It's a small price for them for s short period of time but a huge help for the rest of the country. Period.
