Wise Words with Wesley LaPorte


Mobile phones are everywhere, in the pockets of millions of people the world over, and used constantly every day. One aspect of this constant use that is rarely considered is hygiene. Users eat then text, or shake hands then make a phone call – after each interaction the phone collects bacteria which is rarely cleaned off. Founder of PhoneSoap, Wesley LaPorte, took this health risk as the basis for his business model and developed a case for a mobile phone that cleans the device using a UV light.
