The UK Government announced the end of tampon tax in the 2020 budget. Up until now, period products were viewed as ‘luxury’ items rather than essentials, subjecting them to a 5 percent tax.

This will reportedly save those who menstruate an average of £40 throughout their lifetime.

Now, people are asking that the £700 million collected from the sales tax in previous years go back to where it was promised – women’s health and support charities.
