The Period Product Tax Has Finally Been Scrapped! What now?

As of the 1st of January 2021, period products are no longer taxed as a luxury item (a tax that was required by the EU of its members - the EU are also working on abolishing this tax). They are now zero-vat rated saving you 5%. 320,000 people signed the tampon tax petition, proof that individuals can come together to make change.

This was a symbolic win for campaigners ending this "sexist tax". Felicia Willow, chief executive of women's rights charity the Fawcett Society, said: "It's been a long road to reach this point, but at last the sexist tax that saw sanitary products classed as non-essential, luxury items can be consigned to the history books."

Let's come together again and get the tax on period pants abolished too!

Reusable period PANTS are still taxed at 20% as they are not deemed to be designed solely for your menstrual flow, which is ridiculous. Although, period pants are comfy they are certainly not a replacement for everyday underwear! There’s a petition online to change this, please click here and sign it, if you agree and want this to change.

A downside to the abolished period tax

Since 2015, the government have directed the funds from the tampon tax to women’s refuge and domestic abuse charities, who will now be loosing out when the funds come to an end. If you want to help, you can donate period products to A Bloody Good Period via our website or go direct. 

Free period products in Scotland

In recent changes, Scotland have become the first country to make period products free for all, accessed via local authorities and in England, they are free in colleges and schools. It would be good to see more plastic free and toxic free period alternatives in the free schemes though.

If you are interested in plastic free and toxic free period products that are kinder to the environment, please do check out what we stock here. We have a wide range to suit all from menstrual cups, organic tampons, pads and liners, reusable sanitary pads and we even stock a hot water bottle that can be tied around your tummy specifically for when you are on your period!

  • My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it’s been a while since my lover’s attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn’t need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what’s-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; emutemple@gmail.com , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with… Thank you Dr Emu.

    Black Magic can really play havoc with the life of the target person by destroying any aspect of life may it be career/business or wealth/prosperity.

    Creating family problems or unnecessary tensions/phobias, adversely affecting children & family.

    Creating chronic health problems, destroying mental peace, intelligence & happiness, cause inner turmoil, unrest & uncharacteristic/abnormal behavior and even cause unnatural deaths in extreme circumstances.

    But also affects the psyche of the victim in such a way that he loses the willpower & mental energy to get out of the dark situation he is in and has no desire to live or rise in life.
