Time to turn the tables on a "covert price-gouging system"

The Blue Tax/Angie Frank

Why should pink pacifiers cost more than blue ones?  Why should women's disposable razors cost 13% more than men's?

You may not have heard of the so-called "pink tax," but chances are, you've paid it.  It costs woman over $1300 more a year, in fact. 

Angie Frank had a business creating personal care products from natural ingredients, so when customers asked for a beard oil, she developed one, charged 13% more for it ... and that's when the inspiration hit.

More information about Blue Taxis available here and on Facebook.
