Why We Love August

August's journey began in January 2020, when they gathered their gen z community together to identify gaps in period care. They spent the last few years working to collectively democratize access to period health education, identify solutions for more sustainable and comfortable period products, and build an #InnerCycle.  At their core they care about sustainability, impact, and inclusivity.   They believe in a world where all humans have their natural needs met with quality care.

The very best part of August is the period product coalition they are leading to fight the Tampon Tax.  


21 states still tax period products as “non-essential goods,” meanwhile products like Rogaine and Viagra are considered medical necessities.

We think that is bullsh** so we have come together as collaborators, rather than competitors, to collectively take a stand against the tampon tax. The #TamponTaxBack initiative was started by August in May of 2023, and within just a few months, this coalition was built to expand its impact.

So if you’re buying from any of the participating brands (August, Cora, DIVA, Here We Flo, The Honey Pot, LOLA, Saalt, Rael) from a retail store, we’ll reimburse you for any tampon tax you pay. Just text us a pic of your receipt!  Click the QR code, follow the directions, & get reimbursed!

Why We Love August-  August not only answered the period product toxicity problem but they are educating & taking the power back with tampon tax (ala Taylor Swift) by bonding together with their competitors to say "no" to lawmakers in support of girls & women.  We say yes to clean period products, yes to fair taxes, and yes to August!
