Students aim to reduce purchase embarrassment

Junior Achievers create online store

A group of students from Ballakermeen High school are aiming to help people who find buying certain items embarrassing.

They are taking part in Junior Achievement, a Manx charity giving sixth formers real life business experience to hopefully inspire future entrepreneurs. 

Four year 12 pupils, calling themselves Cogitare, have decided to create an online store which will sell essentials like sanitary products and condoms.

Emma Mitchell is the group's Managing Director.

She says they have source sanitary wear which they will sell without the so called tampon tax.
