Petition Recognise period pants as a menstrual product so that they can be taxed fairly

The 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.

More details

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.
