'Luxury' items you say?...
Did you know that Period Poverty is a major issue in many parts of the United Kingdom (and globally of course)? So many young girls have to take time off of school because they cannot afford to buy sanitary products... That's crazy! Period products should not have to be the price they are - they have an added luxury item tax that other products have - yet they are not an unnecessary or luxury item. Did you know that men's razors are not considered a luxury item?... (are are often cheaper than women's razors!)
There are many organisations and campaigns to try and get free sanitary products available to young people in schools, as well as campaigning to get the overall price of these items reduced. Hey Girls - https://www.instagram.com/heygirlsuk/ being a fantastic one we at The PEACH Diaries support!
