WHAT IS PINK TAX?
Many women's products are up-charged compared to their male equivalents. Boxed is taking a stand. Prices on women's items have been reduced to make them equal to their male counterparts on a per ounce or per unit basis. 35 states also charge anywhere from 4-10% sales tax on tampons and pads because they are considered 'luxury' items, known as the Tampon Tax. These are everyday essentials that every woman depends on, so we're reducing our prices in an effort to offset these taxes.
GIRLS HELPING GIRLS. PERIOD.
Girls and women all across the US are missing school and work because they can't afford necessities like tampons and pads. Girls Helping Girls. Period. collects and distributes products to women in need so they can live with dignity. Last holiday season, Boxed donated over 150,000 pads and tampons to Girls Helping Girls. Period.
