Mike Medicoff and Damien Vince sit down with me to talk about their fatherhood journeys. We talk about the values they are looking to instill into their kids. In addition they tell me the life lessons they learned from their kids. After that we chat about their company, Change Toothpaste and how their kids were the inspiration. Lastly, we finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.
About Damian Vince
Damien was raised in a family of recyclers. They composted, grew their own food, and tried to minimize our environmental impact, but when he moved out, those habits fell away. With his kids becoming more aware, he realized he needed to do more and take the initiative into his own hands. In partnership with Mike, sustainability has become a top priority, and it is invigorating to explore the possibilities this sector holds. With Change, he is not only been able to learn how to teach people about sustainability, but he has learned how to expand his own horizons as well.
About Mike Medicoff
Mike’s children’s commitment to sustainability has had an indelible impact on his decision to co-found Change. After learning how harmful traditional toothpaste tube are for the environment, he knew something needed to change. Together, Damien and Mike have worked tirelessly to perfect a tablet recipe that can replace the need for the tube. They wanted an all-natural product that addressed allergies, preferences and needs. They could not be more proud of the recipe they have created. This is the small way he has chosen to educate about plastic pollution, and hopefully he will leave the planet in a better condition than his kids found it.
