Welcome to Tampon Club

#You can now buy Tampon Club starter kits at the #civicshop in Somerset House

In December Cassie Robinson got in touch with us to ask if we’d like to sell ‘Tampon Club starter kits’ as part of her Civic Shop in Somerset House.

(from http://www.civicworkshop.city/)

The Civic Shop showcases the work of a new generation of civic activists and social designers - inventors of new public spaces, new economies and champions of public good in everyday life.

… and…

At the Civic Shop, there are some things that are for sale and some things that are free. Any money made goes back into the causes that inspired the products in the first place. Most of all though, each of the initiatives showcased here is an invitation to participate.

##What’s in a Tampon Club starter kit

The Tampon Club starter kits contain everything you need to set up a Tampon Club:

  • A plastic container (w11 x d15 x h10.3cm)
  • 7 Applicator Tampons
  • 10 Non-applicator Tampons
  • 4 Sanitary towels
  • A laminated information card to leave near your Tampon Club
  • 2 Tampon Club Stickers

Kits cost £10 and proceeds go to Solace Women’s Aid, a London based charity for women and children affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence. The Civic Shop will be running in Somerset House until mid March and is open Wednesday - Sunday 12pm-6pm.
