Organic tampons by The Female Company have nothing to hide – and yet, they do. Why? With the Tampon Book we demonstrate against the unfair taxation of tampons, pads and all other hygiene products for menstruation. Do you want to know more? Please, watch our film!
The Tampon Book contains 15 organic tampons as well as 46 pages of bloody interesting stories about menstruation. Illustrated with the bold brush of Ana Curbelo – and of course printed on organic paper.
Our story was covered by almost all German TV networks, countless papers and websites. A petition on change.org got the necessary 150.000 signatures. A broad alliance of influencers, journalists and politicians started supporting our claims. When even Germany’s largest drugstore chain DM decided to sell The Tampon Book, the pressure on the Government became too much.
On November 7, 2019, Germany abolished the tampon tax.
It’s not easy to get hands on a Tampon Book these days. The forth edition is completely sold out and there will be no more copies. Sorry! And while that may sound a little sad, it is actually pretty cool. Since the tampon tax is gone, the world doesn’t need the Tampon Book. But if you do, you might try on eBay!
