With so many choices out there...I often find it difficult to stay in integrity with my Green Dream. I definitely strive to be the kind of human that only supports earth friendly brands, only eats organic foods and only puts toxin free products onto my skin. But, even with the best intentions, I've slowly come to realize the "only's" are hard to live up to and doing the best I can is an ever evolving concept.
That's why I love companies that make it easier for me to feel proud of myself whilst re-energizing my green dreams via offering beautiful, thoughtful and socially conscious necessities.
BOGO brush is very similar to Warby Parker and Toms in that they use the Buy One Give One model- but this time with toothbrushes.
According to BOGO, 80 million Americans lack access to adequate dental care in the US. BOGO is a direct response to addressing this issue and has set a goal to get 10,000 brushes into the hands of those who need it. It's a small goal but an inportant step towards reducing the numbers of Americans who lack access to dental care.
Another great goal is to eventually make their brushes 100% biodegradable. Currently their handles are biodegradable and can be composted but not the bristles. Read more about it- "It's Not Easy Being Green." With nearly 450 Million toothbrushes thrown away each year...I hope they accomplish their mission.
As far as the brushing experience...I have to say it's takes a bit of getting used to. The wooden handle feels a little strange while brushing... but it's a small price to pay for a better world.
