Top Tip time: You’ve probably heard how women are often charged more than men for things like dry-cleaning and razors, even though those products and services are the same? It’s sometimes called a “pink tax.” But did you know that often girls products cost more than boys products too? I am looking at an online store as I say this, and there is a blue sippy cup advertised for $3.99. Right next to it, the same exact sippy cup —but in pink— is $4.99! That’s LITERALLY a pink tax! So, what do you do about it? First of all, we can all try to get away from this ridiculous color-coding of babies into pink and blue. Why not buy a blue cup for your baby girl? Second, try looking for other colors like, say, green and orange that aren’t associated with a particular gender. And third, if this bugs you, complain! Social media makes it easier than ever and companies DO listen.
