Hydrophil Toothbrush holder
Slanted? Why not.
It might look a bit crooked when the toothbrush settles in the small ceramic stand, but it would be wrong to conclude that it is not well-balanced. The bamboo toothbrush by Hydrophil, just like any other model, is quite stable when at a slant like this. The toothbrush holders are handmade by people with disabilities in a workshop in Hamburg called Elbe-Werkstätten. Slight variations in the product in no way detract from its idiosyncratic yet charming appearance.
News from the Water Lovers. Water-Saving Products by Hydrophil.
The three founders of Hydrophil – Christoph Laudon, Wanja Johannes Weskott and Sebastian Bensmann – call themselves “water lovers”. And that’s what the name of their company means, since the name comes from the Ancient Greek, “hýdor” meaning water and “phílos”, loving. Their common interests and a blog post by Sebastian on “Water consumption in textile production” gave rise to a joint idea in 2013: They wanted to bring their own products to the market – fair-trade and vegan products manufactured in a water-friendly way. Water-friendly products are products whose components of natural origin have been cultivated without artificial irrigation and which, when composted, leave no harmful residues in the groundwater. Hydrophil’s first product – a T-shirt – proved enormously popular and prompted the founders to expand the range. The company now specialises in the manufacture of hygiene and personal care products – because, what better place to save water than in the bathroom?
By the way: Hydrophil donates 10% of the profits to the non-profit association Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V., which is committed to providing access to clean drinking water and sanitary facilities for people in countries of the global south.
