Bogobrush is an entirely biodegradable toothbrush made of bamboo and nylon, none of which will end up in the landfill. The company’s philosophy is similar to that of shoe company Tom’s: for every Bogobrush purchased, a second is sent to someone in need.
The design team of brother and sister John and Heather McDougall grew up as the children of a dentist. They decided to reinvent the toothbrush and bring the plight of the environment into the public’s view.
The toothbrushes are available for purchase, either individually or on a yearly subscription plan. Knowing that every purchase benefits both the environment and a person in need makes it easier to shell out a few bucks every six months for a new toothbrush.
