Boise Company Advocates For Repeal Of 'The Period Tax'
More than half the population in the United States will need access to menstrual products in their lifetime. That adds up to thousands of dollars over a woman’s lifetime of buying pads and tampons, which can create financial hardship. On Saturday, folks are gathering at the Idaho statehouse in Boise to rally against the "period tax," Idaho's 6% sales tax that applies to menstrual products. Boise-based company Saalt makes reusable menstrual cups, and is helping to support Saturday's event.
