Student inspired by GoGirl Brand


Good Morning Sarah!

I am an undergraduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University. I am majoring in Mass Communications, with my concentration in creative advertising. My professor issued an assignment asking each student to create an ad campaign for a product of our choice.

I chose to create an ad campaign for a product I have been interested in since last semester, the GoGirl! Thank you so much for having your media resources available for growing advertising students like me, it totally helps (p.s. Your logos and branding are amazing).

I have a 2 weeks to complete my campaign, and am totally excited to see what I can create from inspiration of GoGirl.

Thanks,
Alana Robinson


Hi Alana,

Thanks for sharing this! I'm so excited to hear that you chose GoGirl as a model/inspiration for ad campaign project. We'd love to hear how it turns out - Keep me posted!

Sleeping Comfortably with GoGirl


Check out this great review of GoGirl posted by Robyn, blogger for www.dijukno.com. Thanks Robyn!

Sleeping Comfortably At Camp
September 30, 2011

Dijukno you should pee if you feel the urge when you are sleeping in cold weather? Holding it in requires your body to waste energy trying to heat up the water in your bladder. Getting out of your warm sleeping bag to put on boots and venturing half clothed into the snow to pee is annoying. To avoid exposing yourself to the elements use a pee bottle. If you sleep in a bivy sack a pee bottle may be a mandatory accessory. Avoid these problems by using a pee bottle such as an old,wide mouth, BPA Nalgene bottle with a secure cap. Get a yellow one, or mark it with a Sharpie with visual and tactile cues to label the bottle and cap. Use duct tape or wrap to help you distinguish it in the dark. Needless to say,when using a pee bottle inside your tent or sleeping bag, accuracy and a consistent approach are key. Keep the bottle where it won't freeze before you get a chance to empty it in the morning. Did I mention it should have a secure cap?

For the ladies, you might try a GoGirl interface to a pee bottle. A GoGirl is a female urination device that allows females to pee while standing up (or kneeing). It's discreet, it's hygienic and it is reusable: just store it in the plastic bag, and clean it later with soap and water.

According to instructions, just adjust your clothing and hold the GoGirl gently against your body to form a seal. Aim and urinate. A moment or two of pre-heating inside your jacket or sleeping could be advisable. After your trip clean the bottle with bleach,rinse well and let it air dry, preferably in sunlight.

Cleaning GoGirl for reuse when out & about


Hi Sarah,

I've read the "How To Use" article but I still don't understand if GoGirl  can be used more than once on an outing, without washing and sterilizing. Wouldn't you be just carrying around germs and odor, in which case, at the next use, just transferring those germs to yourself?

-Linda



Hi Linda,

Thanks for your email and you ask a good question! GoGirl is made from medical grade silicone and will withstand use after use without the concern of it breaking down (even in extreme weather conditions, hot or cold). Our silicone is water and germ resistant and with a good "shake" after use, you'll see that it practically beads dry (some give a little squirt with a water bottle to rinse). Then, place in the provided storage bag, tuck it away and wash with soap and water when you're able to.

The next time you venture out and think you may need GoGirl more than once, my suggestion is to simply tuck away in a fresh zip-lock sandwich bag with a fresh tissue. It certainly has proven to be another solution for us ladies to be able to "do our thing" while maintaining our dignity! :)

Thanks again!
Sarah
