BCI Certified: These WUKA Basics Hipster period pants are certified by the Better Cotton Initiative. The cotton they use is produced by farmers who care for the environment and minimise the negative effects of fertilisers and pesticides. They also care for the water, soil health and natural habitats, producing the most sustainable cotton for our pants as possible. (This cotton however is not organic. We stock these pants as an affordable reusable period pant).
What are period pants?
Period pants look and feel like your regular underwear but they are leakproof underwear, which means you don't have to wear a pad, a tampon or menstrual cup if you wear them during your period. The gusset is just a bit thicker than your normal pants so you can bleed straight into them, and they won't leak through to your clothes.
Period pants can be used for many purposes from periods to postpartum discharge, endometriosis flow and bladder leaks.
Why do we stock Wuka?
WUKA have been fighting a long battle with HMRC since the day they launched in the UK because when they were looking for VAT for a menstrual product, period pants was not even in the list.
The UK Government announced there will be no period tax on women’s sanitary products from Jan 2021 but has failed to acknowledge reusable period pants as a menstrual product This creates an unfair playing field for disposable period products to be lower price than sustainable period pants taxed at 20% VAT.
We need your support. Sustainable periods are not a luxury! We would like ministers to simply address this inequality and make Period Pants 0% VAT along with disposable menstrual products in the new financial year.
