"SO MY WIFE CAN SLEEP"

WHY I BOGOBRUSH?

Bogobrusher and Wefunder Investor, Scott, recently shared with us his story for being a Bogobrush fan. Scott is a self-described "recovering mechanical engineer" with decades of experience creating sustainable buildings. His story is both practical and endearing. Read on. :)

 

BOGOBRUSH IS QUIET TO USE
Within the last 18 months, my wife and I moved from Iowa to Idaho. I found a dentist I really like who strongly recommends an electric toothbrush. I am trying to do what my doctor recommends, but found that this toothbrush makes a fair bit of noise. My wife and I often have different schedules. I might be up late working on something and don't want to wake her, so I use the Bogobrush because it is quiet! Same thing in the morning depending on when we get up.

 

WHY I INVESTED IN BOGOBRUSH ON WEFUNDER

TO SUPPORT EARTH-FRIENDLY LIFESTYLES

So, why did I invest in Bogobrush on Wefunder in the first place? Often people, companies, and organizations feel overwhelmed when faced with improving sustainability. It is a huge issue and we often feel very small or not impactful enough. One of the concepts that I present (and the hundreds of engineers that worked for me over the years heard over and over and...well you get it) is any number times a big number is a big number.

I use the concept of your toothbrush as that small thing that is multiplied by in your case billions of times (opportunity wise of course) that reduces the raw plastic going into landfills. While I don't have a compost pile to throw my brushes, I know that the majority of the brush will decompose in the landfill. Landfills need stuff to decompose too!

WHAT HOOKED ME AS A CUSTOMER

BEAUTIFUL DESIGN AND GIVING BACK
Now, the style, quality, design, and your matching donation of brushes is what kept me a customer. When traveling (I retire my daily brush and stand to travel when I get a new brush) when people see my brush and stand they love the idea of the stand and then learn about the other aspects of the brush. Not sure how many became customers, but I try!
