Podcast with Co-founder of BogoBrush on how to Create a Socially Conscious Toothbrush Through Sustainable Design



In Episode 1 of the Disruptors for Good podcast I spoke with Heather Mcdougall, co-founder of Bogobrush.

BogoBrush is rethinking the toothbrush with eco-designed toothbrushes made entirely in the USA. The plastics in almost all toothbrushes are non-recyclable, meaning over 450 million toothbrushes a year in the U.S. alone end up in landfills. These products are either bio-degradable or made from nearly 100% recycled plastic. When you’re done, throw them in your compost or recycle bin—and nature will do its thing.

Topics we talk about:

  • Why think tanks are important for formulating your idea
  • Sustainable materials and sustainable design
  • Coffee waste, hemp waste, plastic waste, cotton waste
  • China manufacturing/supply chain vs US manufacturing/supply chain
  • Raising money for a socially conscious startup
  • Equity Crowdfunding vs Venture Capital
  • New Bogobrush products coming out
