The decision marks a victory in the 20-year campaign by women’s groups against 50-year-old VAT rules that once categorised tampons as “non-essential, luxury items”.
Today on #menstrualhygieneday2020, @plastfreepad would like to celebrate the decision taken by UK government @rishisunakmp to scrap the controversial 5% tampon tax and abolish VAT on all women’s sanitary products from 2021.
For manufacturers like us, this means we can pass the 5% to you-our customers making your purchase an approximate £40 cheaper yearly.
