Lingerie retailer supports axe of tampon tax

An independent lingerie retailer based in London’s Notting Hill is supporting a campaign to axe the tax on tampons.

Throughout this month, Dolci Follie is giving away a free box of tampons with every set of luxury lingerie purchased.

The Government still taxes sanitary products on luxurious, "non essential" grounds, but a petition started by to have the tax removed has so far attracted over 270,000 signatures.

Backing the petition, Dolci Follie said: “As experts on everything that is luxury, we think it’s unfair and ridiculous to tax tampons as a luxury item. That’s why we’re supporting the campaign to axe the tampon tax.”

Dolci Follie has welcomed customers to pick up their free tampons in store until November 30.
