In an effort to reduce the stigma surrounding periods, a club in West Yorkshire called the Camel Club has put up a Christmas tree decorated with tampons. The Huddersfield venue is eschewing more traditional decorations with their 'Sani-Tree.' Also wrapped with tinsel and lights, the tree is supposed to help patrons through the holiday period.

The UK club is using the female sanitary products for purely decorative reasons, as the tampons have been removed from their packaging to be placed on the tree with what appears to be wooden clothing pins.

Popular among university students, the Camel Club has received praise from the Huddersfield University Feminist Society. The festive installation is just one way to de-stigmatize menstruation, as others turn to jewelry and video games.
