This Genius New Company Is Like Warby Parker for Toothbrushes
Custom and personalized online shopping experiences are what we’ve come to expect from our fave brands. One of the best examples of this is glasses company Warby Parker, which has inspired countless other mail-to-door brands for everything from kids clothes to shoes. Now, however, a new company has taken elevated shopping to new, ahem, heights. Meet Goby: the electric toothbrush subscription service of your dreams.
Goby is the toothbrush you never knew you wanted. Sleek styling combined with uber hip colors make this toothbrush company stand out in the crowd. And like glasses company Warby Parker, their prices are oh-so-affordable for those of us not able to shell out hundreds on high-end electric brushes. All the style without the crushing cost ain’t bad, right?
And like WP, Goby is also in the business of giving back. They have partnered with NYU’s school of dentistry to provide funds that go to helping people all over the world receive good dental care.
Design, function and a low price? This toothbrush will probably make your dentist’s visits way less terrible.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
