On March 26th, Denver’s City Council voted to approve legislation that will get rid of the sales tax on menstrual hygiene products in the city of Denver. The City Council voted in favor of this bill 11-0, supporting the belief that menstruation is women’s health and that women shouldn’t have to be financially burdened because of something biological to their bodies.

Starting July 1st, pads, tampons, sponges, and most menstrual cups, will be exempt from sales tax in the city of Denver but will still be subject to state and RTD tax.

This is the exact message That’s My Period stands for and has been campaigning for since we started our petition in January. We will continue advocating for this bill to be adopted by the state of Colorado.
