This sustainable swap is an easy replacement for your heavy-duty plastic dishwashing + scrub brushes. The rounded ergonomic handle made from Moso Bamboo and stiff plant fiber bristles make it ideal for scrubbing pots, pans and stuck-on food, as well as tough messes around the house!
- stuff bristles work well on cast iron, and can even be used on nonstick pots + pans (just be a bit more gentle!)
- large bristle diameter for quick + easy dish washing!
- wood is FSC-certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague
- nontoxic, natural wood coating adds waterproof protection + longevity (up to 6 months!)
Why choose wood over plastic? Plastic bristle scrub brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called micro plastics. Unfortunately these tiny plastic pieces are not filtered out fully by sewage - instead, they are being eaten by marine animals + ending up in the food chain, being consumed by humans around the globe! And if you're vegan, they are ending up in our tap water too.
Instead of plastic, these brushes are made of Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timberbamboo, a fast-renewing resource that has been used for centuries to fashion building materials, flooring and culinary tools. The
CASA AGAVE™ agave plant fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
With a brush made entirely from plants + coated with a protective non-toxic wood coating, that makes this brush 100% compostable at the end of its life!
How to Use
Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food.
Each brush can be used for up to 6 months. For maximum longevity, ensure that you do not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water + that you dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
Cleaning: If you feel you need to clean your brush, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The bamboo is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too!
End of life: Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, then compost or bury in garden or dispose in a green waste bin. As with any brush, stop using and replace it if you see any mold growth.
