Miki’s art has always targeted topics and issues that the general public considers taboo. “I’ve always appreciated criticizing the status quo and society’s approach to things,” Miki explains. Is there a more effective, efficient, environmentally friendly, design-conscious, and artistic way to accomplish them? My favorite motto is “iteration is perfection,” and I’ve always been interested by the process of discovery, creation, and quick advances. I am really proud of having established successful businesses that have confronted taboos head-on, are truly altering culture, and are improving the lives of millions of people all over the world. In the process of creating these enterprises, I’ve also learnt a lot of lessons (oh, have I ever), and I’m excited to share them with you.

Miki Agrawal founded TUSHY to provide a modern, best-in-class, and cheap bidet attachment to the American bathroom. Wiping your poop with toilet paper is not only inefficient, but it also causes health problems such as UTIs, hemorrhoids, yeast infections, anal fissures, and anal itching (with wet wipes as well! ), not to mention the fact that it takes 15 million trees to create toilet paper.

Miki Agrawal decided she had a personal and corporate social responsibility to address India’s defecation issues after an eye-opening trip there. Miki established a business give-back program after creating TUSHY. Through the give back initiative, a portion of each TUSHY gives one family in India
