Here We Flo is proud to join the #TamponTaxBack coalition. 🇺🇸
21 states in the USA still tax period products as “non-essential goods," so we've come together with 7 other period care brands to take a stand against the tampon tax.
“Why does the tampon tax matter?”
The tampon tax highlights the financial injustice faced by all menstruators. Period products aren’t a luxury, they are essential health products that people have to purchase monthly. The tampon tax disproportionately affects menstruators, who are likely to already be facing financial injustice through the gender pay gap and societal prejudice. With products like Rogaine and Viagra labelled as medical (tax-free) necessities, it’s obvious menstruators aren’t the ones deciding taxation policies in these 21 states.
“Why is FLO working with competitors?”
At Here We Flo we’re all for collaboration over competition, after all, kindness is kween. By joining forces with like-minded brands we can create change even quicker, and in this case, get more menstruators their dolla back!
“How can I claim my tampon tax back?”
If you buy FLO period products from any of the 21 states where the tax still exists, we’ll reimburse you. Just text us a pic of your receipt! 💬
