Introducing the founders: Meet Joshua!
"I wanted to create something that not only benefits the people but also the planet."
What motivates you?
'Inspiring others to have a more positive impact on the environment with simple and well designed eco-friendly objects is what motivates me the most. As a designer, especially now, it is so important to consider all aspects of a design. I love the challenge of trying to find new alternatives and solutions, testing different materials and discovering new production processes... To quote a famous billboard "Waste is a design flaw", and I completely agree with that.
Why did you create Tooth.?
'I was simply frustrated with the average plastic toothbrush. The manual toothbrush is such a product of necessity that there wasn't much aesthetic put into it, all it had to do was brush your teeth right? It's boring and it wasn't benefiting the planet in any way. I wanted to change that, and thus, Tooth. was created! I wanted to create something that not only benefits the people but also the planet.'
Anything else you think people should know about you?
'Apart from making toothbrushes, I love to make sculptures and furniture with scrap metal. A passion I always had since I was a kid.'
