Consistent voluntary work beginning during our own school years and continuing through to this day as dedicated young adults has led us to decide to continue our mission in vigorously striving for social causes affecting the less fortunate around us.
We make eco-friendly, 100% recycled, custom-designed stickers that (combined with a little imagination) turn any old box into a wonderland of possibilities. Good for the imagination. Good for the earth. Good for the pocketbook.
During a humanitarian trip to Central America, the founders of Smile Squared saw how much dental health impacts a child's life. Kids across the globe lack the necessary dental hygiene to maintain quality health and self-esteem. In hopes of giving every child the opportunity for clean, healthy teeth, Smile Squared was born. Our “Buy One, Give One” philosophy ensures the purchase you make has a direct impact on the world. Anytime you buy a Smile Squared toothbrush, we’ll send one to a child in need. Together, we can take a small step for big change.
