018: Giving Back Through A One-For-One Business Model with Betsy Drach of Dot

Description

Isn’t it the freaking worst when a tampon starts to leak?

Don’t even get me started on pads that feel like adult diapers!

Now, can you imagine living in a third world country where you don’t even have the luxury of a tampon or pad?

On this episode, I chat with Betsy Drach who is the founder of Dot, a modern menstrual cup company, all about her one-for-one business model (similar to brands like TOMS or Warby Parker) where for every Dot cup purchased, one will be given to a girl in need.

By the way, Dot is less than a year old and these mighty cups are already in stores like FreePeople and been featured in magazines like Darling!
