About this project

-FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OF 6 TOGAs OR MORE.-

What is TOGA?

In ancient Greek mythology, EOS was the name given to the goddess of the dawn. In modern times, the word instead makes people think of awesome egg-shaped lip balms. So what better way to accessorize your EOS® than with a new holder appropriately called TOGA™?   

With a quick click on the links below, you could play a HUGE part in spreading the word and helping this campaign get one step closer to funding...

 

 

 

 

Disclaimer

Before we really dive in, it should be noted that this Kickstarter project and the TOGA™ product are not endorsed, in any way, by EOS Products LLC. We are huge fans of EOS® branded products--especially their wonderful lip balms. Just like silicone holders for hand sanitizers have made them more portable and easier to use, we hope TOGA™ will do the same for EOS® lip balms. No EOS® lip balms are included with any pre-order pledge. Now, without further ado...

Say Hello to TOGA™

TOGA™ comes in two patent-pending designs: The "Standard" silicone with stainless-steel chain version and the all-silicone "Lite" version. They both work great and make using your EOS® lip balm on a daily basis so much easier. No more time wasted looking for it at the bottom of your bag. Your lip balm remains exactly where you hook or hang it, ready to be used within seconds, each and every time. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

How Convenient

EOS® lip balm is all about intelligent design--from the uniquely rounded shape which allows it to be applied to both lips simultaneously to the smooth feel of the outer shell and flat bottom. We wanted to enhance that vision with an accessory that could add functionality and look good while doing it. We asked ourselves, how could EOS® become more user-friendly and look even cuter?  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Building Awareness

We wanted TOGA™ to have a purpose beyond added functionality, so we made the decision to create a limited run set of holders containing inspirational text. The three causes we want to help build awareness for are breast cancer, autism, and environmentalism--all of which are very dear to us. The organizations listed below do tremendous work in their respective fields, so we urge everyone to learn more about each of them and help to spread the word. The printed quotes can be found below...

 

 "The human spirit is stronger than anything that can happen to it." -C. Scott

"I am different, not less" -T. Grandin

"Take care of the Earth and she will take care of you" (Anonymous)

The TOGA Standard

We knew one thing at the outset: TOGA™ had to work really well. It had to be easy to put on and take off and it had to be able to hold on without the entire ball of lip balm falling out. So we molded it with high-quality silicone to perfectly hug the top half of your EOS® like a glove. Not only does it retain a kung-fu like grip, TOGA™ allows for the bottom half--the balm applicator portion--to be removed without having to unhook the top from whatever it's connected to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lite the Way

There's millions of people out there who carry around their hand sanitizers with those cute silicone holders attached to their bags. We wanted to make something that matched those to a T so that's where the idea for the Lite version was born. It's made out of 100% silicone and it's super easy to use. TOGA Lite will be available in four fun colors: blue, aqua, pink, and ivory. 

 

 

 

 

A Look at the Rewards

Every reward is a set of assorted color TOGAs, with the minimum being three (3). Our goal is to deliver before the 2016 holidays so a couple of TOGAs to your favorite someone could be the ideal stocking stuffer for anyone who uses EOS® lip balms in any capacity. Note: EOS® lip balms not included. 

 

 

The TOGA™ Process

My wife and daughters love, love, love their EOS® lip balms. Seeing it around the house all the time made me an instant admirer. The ladies also happen to have those silicone hand sanitizers all over the place. So one day, we all just thought why not try to design something like that for EOS®! It was a truly collaborative effort and, in the end, we're really proud of the results. We're 100% satisfied with the quality of the samples and we're confident we can hit the December pre-holiday ship date. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One More Thing...

I'll be completely honest here... we have no idea what the response will be for our project. TOGA is clearly for people who love their EOS® lip balms, but the real question is whether those people have a desire to enhance their experience or to make it more portable and accessible. The proof will be in the pudding, as the saying goes. I've been a part of two successful Kickstarter projects in the past, so I know all the ins and outs of what is required to deliver on the project, so deliver we will as long as you all want it. Please feel free to share comments and suggestions with us and read through the FAQ for any little details you're still uncertain about. And, lastly, THANK YOU for getting this far and just being here with us on this project.  

Risks and challenges

I have personally played an integral part in two recently successful Kickstarter campaigns (TubShroom and SinkShroom), so I know what it will take to make this one a success too. We absolutely have been very careful to line up all our duckies in a row to make sure we can deliver before the holidays. Now, there can be unforeseen challenges that cause delays, like strikes, natural disasters, and other craziness, but we'll do our best to work around whatever bumps arise in the road and deliver as early as we possibly can. Our goal is 100% satisfaction and positive word of mouth.
