Today, declaring your affection for your BFF with bracelets, necklaces and other trinkets seems downright corny. That’s why Brooklyn blogger Kat Thek created something that’s both practical and connects pals during their menses: ‘Friends Forever Tampons,’ two sharable sanitary products joined by a 0.6 meter-long string. Thek says the item is “about bringing friends much, much closer”. Metro talks to the creator about this novel way “to spend quality time with your bestie.”
Q: Why have you created this unusual feminine hygiene range?
– They aren’t just about proving friendship, they’re about bringing friends much, much closer.
Q: How do you mean “much, much closer”?
– Between internet chat rooms and all of the different “Law and Order” spin-off shows, it can be tricky for best friends to find time for each other. Friends Forever Tampons offer an easy, natural way to spend quality monthly time with your bestie.
Q: Who else benefits from these?
– They can also be worn by synchronized swimming teams.
Q: What does the future hold for your concept?
– The future is ‘Super-Plus’ bright. Friends Forever Tampons are now in stores in the U.S., now flowing to France and will be in Icelandic stores in early September.
