TED Talk: Free the Tampons by Nancy Kramer

Menstrual products can be expensive. That’s why Free The Tampons Foundation advocates for free period products in public restrooms.

“As it turns out not all restrooms are created equal, some of them have all the items in them that a person needs and others don’t. I have actually been thinking about this since January of 1982 when I walked into the women’s restroom in Apple’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California and there on the counter was a collection of tampons and pads for everyone to freely access.”
