Project Description

 

MISSION

We are on a mission to create beautiful products out of waste to inspire circularity in life. We believe it starts with beautiful design and the humans who create it. 

 

PROBLEM WE’RE SOLVING

Each year, 1 Billion toothbrushes end up in landfills or habitats in the USA, and 80 Million Americans lack access to adequate dental care. On top of these issues, from a design standpoint,  toothbrushes are something people hide away in a dirty cup or cabinet. Their grips and gimmicks made them un-recyclable.  

For Retailers like CVS they have problems reaching young, eco-conscious customers, and our products give them a way to stay relevant, all while they are able to increase their revenue per square foot compared to traditional toothbrushes.

Many customers want their purchases and decisions to have a positive impact, and want to know that they are helping the world through the objects they use.

 

MARKET SIZE AND OPPORTUNITY

Bogobrush has a $6.9 billion Target Addressable Market. Eighty-three percent of consumers today expect products to create positive environmental or social impact. This translates in the market to where we see that 55% of CPG market growth today comes from Sustainable & Premium brands. These brands are proving to grow 7x faster than conventional brands, AND consumers are willing to pay at least 40% more for products with values like Bogobrush.

Bogobrush has seen exponential growth for three straight years - 7x from 2019 to 2020 - and is ready to scale to meet even larger demand.  In the past 12 months, Bogobrush has grown through sales partnerships with stores including CVS, Amazon.com in US and UK, Selfridges&Co Department Store UK (regularly voted the “world’s best department store,”) and has monthly subscribers through bogobrush.com.

Bogobrush has a unique position in the market as the only product that brings together sustainabilty, modern design, social impact, and made in the USA. The eco-chic customer has disrupted many CPG categories and oral care is ready for that next change. With our pricing model, retailers earn up to 100% more revenue per unit with Bogobrush that most manual toothbrushes.

 

PRODUCT SOLUTION

Bogobrush designs, innovates, manufactures, and sells sustainable, made in the USA toothbrushes and stands.

Made from entirely recycled materials, Bogobrush collections never have to see a landfill. Our recycled collection uses recycled plastic from manufacturing waste, and our natural, plastic-free collection is made from plants like cotton, coffee, hemp, and flax. 

Bogobrush's beautiful, minimal design stands out from all other manual toothbrushes and combined with our stand, is elevated to something people proudly display in their home. The sustainable materials and packaging connect with customers who demand sustainable values in the products they use. We continue to launch industry-first materials and designs. 

Through Bogobrush, we have redirected the equivalent of 440,000 plastic bottles from entering the waste stream. And by producing in the USA, we've prevented an estimated 58 tons of C02 from entering the atmosphere.  

And, we don't stop there. We donate 10% of profits to organizations around the world supporting sustainability in local communities, because doing good is good for business. 

 

USE OF FUNDS

We are fundraising to invest in marketing including social media, trade spend, and consumer marketing. We are also investing in hiring and team building in marketing, sales, and operations to support the growth of the company. We are also funding new materials to bring newness to our collections, which buyers love.
