WE ARE SPYGLASS INNOVATIONS

INEFFICIENCY, CHEMICAL OVERUSE, POLLUTION, CLIMATE CHANGE,
THESE ARE THE FACTORS THAT DRIVE US

OUR STORY

IGNITION

With a design that has remained unchanged for 100 years, the conventional toilet brush is inefficient and results in millions of gallons of wasted water, excessive use of bleach and countless tonnes of unnecessary landfill.

It was this challenge that led Garry Stewart, a serial inventor and entrepreneur with a passion for the environment, to create Spyglass Innovations. His goal? To build an organisation designed to solve problems that the world has ignored.

LAUNCH

In 2014, Garry joined forces with Ryder Meggitt, a successful innovator and designer, who shares Garry’s vision for driving real change through innovation. Together with a growing team of partners and advisors, they developed and patented SwipeClean Technology, and subsequently came up with the first designs of LooBlade.

In 2015, the Spyglass team launched a Kickstarter campaign for LooBlade. The response exceeded all expectations, raising more than 250% and achieving pre-orders for more than 5,000 units. LooBlade was widely covered in more than 150 media articles across the world and featured on Channel 5’s Gadget Show.

FLIGHT

The interest generated by the campaign resulted in multiple distributor deals across the world, worth millions in pre-orders, and helped establish a European manufacturing partnership with German firms Sauba and Prover.

In 2016, production and shipping of LooBlade began around the planet.

Spyglass continues to innovate and future developments using SwipeClean Technology are already under way…
