Biodegradable toothbrush made from waste

Bogobrush is compostable, recyclable, gives back to people and the planet.

In this episode at The Disruptors for Good podcast, Grant speaks with Heather Mcdougall, co-founder of Bogobrush. Probably the eco+social enterprise that has put more R&D in a toothbrush! It’s made from waste and gives back to people and the planet. Whether you are a recycler or a composter, you will have an upstanding toothbrush! 

BogoBrush is rethinking dental care with eco-designed toothbrushes made entirely in the USA. Why it an eco-friendly toothbrush important? The plastics in almost all toothbrushes are non-recyclable, meaning over 450 million toothbrushes a year in the US alone end up in landfills. 

The biodegradable Bogobrush uses a plant-based bioplastic mixed with leftover plant material from American farms to create this beautifully biodegradable toothbrush handle. Throw them in your compost pile after they wear out – from the earth and back again.

If you are not into composting, the recycled Bogobrush alternative takes plastics that would otherwise be destined for the landfill and give them a second chance at life. These brushes can easily be recycled when it is time to say goodbye.

Bogobrush also gives back. This eco-friendly toothbrush supports a few causes, either donating toothbrushes, cleaning neighborhoods, planting trees, supporting low and no-cost health clinics across the US.
