Well bloody done Tesco lets hope other Supermarkets follow suit.

Tesco has today announced it will reduce the price of women’s sanitary products in a bid to make them more affordable for customers.
The supermarket has agreed to slash the price of tampons and sanitary towels by 5% to cover the cost of the so-called ‘Tampon Tax’ ahead of government proposals to remove VAT on the items.
It will apply to nearly 100 Tesco own label and branded products in the range – including Always and Bodyform amongst other popular household names.
Tesco previously committed to passing the 5% saving on to customers when the government’s proposed removal of VAT first came into force, but has chosen to act early ‘to help customers with their regular shop’.
The supermarket’s tax ban on tampons kicks in today – Friday 28 July, and includes tampons, panty liners and sanitary towels.
Speaking about the price reduction, Michelle McEttrick at Tesco said: “For many of our customers, tampons, panty liners and sanitary towels are essentials products.
