In offices that don’t provide free tampons or pads for staff, it’s easy to get caught out when you need one. Tampon Club is just a group of people leaving tampons and sanitary towels in their workplace toilets, so that they’re available when required. No more walking back to your desk to get a tampon, no more sneaking one up your sleeve; tampons in the loo when you need one. Simple as that.

There’s nothing quite like the realisation that you’ve just “come on”. […] Here’s why [Tampon Club] – wants to make sure you’re never caught out again. – Vice
The idea is easy and totally open; it’s designed to be replicated all over the world. Set one up yourself: Buy some sanitary products, put them in your workplace bathrooms and then invite other women to use them. – How we get to next
