Brush Buddy

Brush Buddy aims to help reduce the amount of clean water wasted everyday by millions of children. One aim of Brush Buddy is to allow children to think about why they used Brush Buddy. They may then be more stringent when using water in the future. Based on the recommended two minute time, brushing twice a day with the tap running uses 24 litres. With Brush Buddy, less than four litres would be used. Instead of spending £18 a year on tooth brushing water, we would spend less than £3 a year. Potentially saving a family of four £60 a year! Feature stickers allow each product to be individually customised, allowing everyone in the family to personalise their Brush Buddy.
