How It Started
Founder Sandra Skovlund, MD is an Ear Nose and Throat, (ENT) surgeon. While working in Ethiopia training physicians, she frequently was without access to bath room facilities, a toilet seat or something she wasn’t comfortable sitting on. Often without running water, but always a bottle of water on hand, the P-Kit provided the clean experience she needed. She devised a kit that including items that made the experience comfortable and clean. She perfected the kit by making all items “green” or biodegradable, free of any perfumes and dyes. To make her story even more amazing, she gives the majority of proceeds from the sale of BioGo products to the Foundation that buys the surgical equipment for the young surgeons she helps to train. AND! all kits are assembled by people with disabilities in Minnesota.
