Enjoy Sara's GoGirl Story

Just got back from a trip to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and my husband and I did several long hikes (6+ hours).  In the past, we'd always have to cut our trips short because, of course, I needed a bathroom break.  BUT, this time I had my Go Girl in my backpack, along with my biodegradable toilet tissue, and I was able to take care of business in the woods.  Also, when I needed water, I wasn't squeamish about drinking as much as I needed to quench my thirst because I could stop anytime I needed to without much effort at all!  THANKS for making my trip so much more enjoyable!

Sara, thank you for your great story and cheers to the great outdoors!  There is a t-shirt and GoGirl on its way to you now.

Enjoy Liddy's GoGirl Story:

Boy, was I the envy of the Iowa baseball moms!  We were watching our sons play high school baseball, eating our snacks and drinks and had to use the bathrooms during our 2-game baseball event.  The only thing available were some dirty (and nasty) pot-a-potties for the teams and fans to use.  I just happened to have my handy “GO GIRL” in my bag and was able to use the bathrooms with ease and comfort!  I showed the other baseball ladies my GO GIRL and they were all impressed!  They all wanted to get “online” and get their own baseball GO GIRL!

 
Thanks Go GIRL team for making my BASEBALL experience more pleasant!!  Go Dodgers!!

Thanks for taking us out to the Ballpark Liddy and for your great story!  There is a t-shirt and GoGirl on its way to you now.

GoGirl Story 3: Tabitha and the Online Reviews

Enjoy Tabitha's GoGirl Story:

Last weekend, I went on my first (ever) camping trip with my husband, without a thought to the restroom situation. We traveled to a state park, set up our tent, and I was pleased to find a restroom within a few hundred feet of us, so I figured all would be well. It wasn't until I made my first trip to the bathroom that I realized how disgusting a public campsite restroom would be! There were actually dead bugs on the seats! Not to mention, when night fell, how those few hundred feet from our tent to the bathroom suddenly felt like a mile, with me trying to stay off the main road (cars would drive down the winding road at incredible speeds, so walking directly on the asphalt was a very dangerous idea), and yet also trying not to accidentally walk through poison ivy or trip over tree branches/rocks/wildlife. The only other option was squatting somewhere near the campsite, leaving me feeling very exposed and a likely target for insects/poison ivy/etc. So I spent the entire weekend alternating between hovering over the nasty toilet seat and squatting behind a thick cover of trees – definitely not a fun experience. My husband, however, seemed unaffected by the restroom dilemma, which I decided was definitely not fair.

So, once we returned home, I sat down at my computer and fervently researched solutions to my problem (because I refuse to allow this issue to hold me back from camping and other outdoor activities!), and came upon a few websites, including yours. I was amazed to find that someone had come up with such a wonderful idea to combat my dilemma! After careful consideration, it was down between the Go-Girl and Shewee, so I set out to read online reviews and testimonials comparing the two. Thanks to quite a few informative blogs (Mommy from the Midwest, forums on Babycenter, etc.) and customer videos, as well as your well-maintained site, Go-girl soon became the hands-down choice for me. Where the Shewee is made of stiff, hard plastic, and a slimmer base that seemed to me to be more likely to leak, your product is soft, flexible, stores discreetly, and has a much wider base, as well as a lip to keep leaks to a minimum (if at all, as I haven't yet encountered any spills or leaks), and comes in a handy storage case – I was immediately sold!

And though this many seem insignificant to other customers, I was so impressed by your youthful, modern design of packaging and branding, I had already been leaning toward your product before I ever came across any customer reviews. Many companies don't seem to realize how crucial graphic design can be, but your logo and website drew me in immediately: the fun pink colors created a sense, to me, that your product was still feminine (which is very important, I would think, considering your demographic), while still giving a playful, tomboy feel. Your name (Go-girl) is incredibly clever, and your slogan ("Don't take life sitting down") is like a rallying cry for women to take initiative and to no longer settle for a situation simply because nature didn't see fit to equip us with a means to go when we are out, enjoying outdoor sports and activities. We no longer have to feel excluded from certain activities that we really enjoy, simply because there isn't a clean restroom handy! Your use of design alone created a feeling of empowerment and inspiration in me, just by stumbling upon your website! And the fact that your product lives up to the image you present – well, that makes me a Go-girl for life! I can't thank you enough for the freedom you've given me, and for such a low price! And just three days after my first camping trip, I hold in my hands the device that will no longer allow my bladder to get in the way of having fun!

I wish you all the success in the world, as I imagine it's a bit difficult to sell this product to some women (I'm trying to convince her, but I don't think my mom is at the point that she'll even consider it), since the subject of urination is a bit taboo... But I hope the majority of your potential customers will realize that this product is far more hygienic, safer, easier, and more discreet than hovering or squatting. Thank you again!


No..THANK YOU TABITHA!  Your story is fantastic and we are so glad that we will be with you the next time you go camping: Bugs beware.  There is a GoGirl T-Shirt and GoGirl on its way to you now.
