I came up with the idea for TubeCoverz(TM), while decorating my bathroom. My husband hates sharing toothpaste, and literally wrote his name on his tube in a thick black marker. I thought about how much I had just spent on matching towels and the toothbrush/soap dish set, and went in search of a cover for our hideous toothpaste tubes. Nothing existed!
After 20+ years in advertising, I had always longed to start my own company, but the big idea hadn’t hit me, until now.
Let's be real - this is a fun product - not an "I need this" product. So we wanted to do something to give back. For every TubeCoverz we sell we will donate a mini-sized tube of toothpaste to people in need.
If you noticed that TubeCoverz is a Glittertude company, that's because I see TubeCoverz as my first product. Who knows what's next! Glittertude is a mix of "Glitter" and "Attitude" and that pretty much describes me and my company. I'm committed to running this business with passion, integrity, a bit of sparkle of course, and an eye on the future. So here it goes!
Onwards and Upwards,
Amber Askins Gearhart Founder: Glittertude, LLC
