I always brush my teeth two times a day recently I'm trying to at least brush three times a day the problem is that the second time I do it is right after lunch break at my job, I carry a toothbrush on my backpack I put on a cover and I put it on a plastic bag alongside my toothpaste, I've read that this is really bad as it promotes the growth of bacteria on your toothbrush. My question is it counterproductive to brush my teeth at the office like this and should I just keep it with two times a day?

Twice a day should be sufficient. Although covers can promote bacterial growth, it is normally because the covers are almost never cleaned.
