The city of Lévis recently announced a grant to encourage the use of washable feminine hygiene products . This grant will allow residents of the city to obtain a 50% reimbursement on the purchase of reusable feminine hygiene products, such as cloth sanitary napkins and menstrual cups. The offer can be increased to 60% if the product is purchased in Lévis, as with the partners Marie fil du Bidon filled !
Why offer a subsidy for sustainable products in Lévis?
This initiative aims to reduce the amount of waste produced by disposable products and to promote a more ecological and economical alternative for women. The subsidy applies to the purchase of washable feminine hygiene products up to a maximum of $100 per person per calendar year.
Financial assistance for sustainable products in Lévis
Lévis positions itself as a city that takes the environment and the health of its citizens to heart. The Sustainable Feminine Hygiene Grant covers the following products:

Lévis offers a subsidy... Still waiting for the city of Quebec!
We cannot salute the decision of the city of Lévis without thinking of the women of the city of Quebec who are still waiting for this privilege. Indeed, the city of Quebec is slow to follow suit in this file which does not seem to be a priority.
