Bogobrush bamboo toothbrush by John and Heather McDougall

December 16th, 2013 by retail design blog

Collaboratively designed, Bogobrush is the buy one give one toothbrush with a sleek, modern form, made of environmentally friendly materials. Unlike the 450 million+ plastic toothbrushes that end up in the landfill each year in the United States, Bogobrush is 100 percent biodegradable.

Bogobrush had its beginnings in Jamestown, North Dakota, where brother sister duo John and Heather McDougall, the company’s founders, grew up as children of a dentist. After John and Heather finished school, they set out to bring more environmental and social awareness into people’s daily routines. Together, with their team of collaborators from all walks of life, they decided to re-imagine the toothbrush.

“We thought that a product you use to start your day and finish your night deserved the highest possible attention to design,” says Chief Creative Officer John McDougall, an award winning industrial designer. Sculpted from bamboo, Bogobrush’s handle has a cylindrical, minimalist form that fits perfectly in every hand. The brush’s bristles, made from biodegradable nylon, stand up to months of regular use, and when the brush’s use is done, it will return safely to earth.
