Organic period products + self-care items + social impact = Hate The Dot.
Hate the Dot is the first period self-care kit of its kind that delivers peace of mind directly to your doorstep!
We are a woman-owned company that is turning your monthly cycle into a self-care ritual by providing period products like 100% organic cotton tampons and pads, and self-care items like soothing teas. Plus, every time you invest in your own self-care, we provide vital period products to homeless & less-fortunate menstruating individuals. Hate the Dot fully launches this Fall!
Hate The Dot was created in crisis: being home alone and getting a surprise visit from her menstrual period. Once Hate The Dot founder Miyoshi Days realized she was all out of pads & tampons, she asked her father to run to the drug store. He did, but came back with ALL of the wrong things. This is the moment her crisis birthed a brilliant idea: make period self-care accessible for all!
Hate The Dot is the first period self-care kit of its kind that delivers peace of mind directly to your doorstep. We envision a future where no one ever has to worry about having the period products they need.
