Dish & Vegetable Brush
This sustainable dish brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dish brushes in the kitchen and home. It is 100% natural and compostable; no plastic bristles on this baby! It is sure to become your new accomplice in the kitchen when you pair it with the solid dish washing block! The handle is made from untreated beechwood and the bristles from union fibre (vegetable fibres). It stands at 3″ tall.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle scrub brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called micro plastics. Unfortunately these tiny plastic pieces are not filtered out fully by sewage treatment. So when you hear about the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” the majority of this garbage patch in the Pacific Ocean is actually tiny pieces of plastic that aren’t even visible to the human eye. These tiny plastic pieces are being eaten by marine animals and ending up in the food chain, being consumed by humans in sushi restaurants around the globe! And if you’re vegan, they are ending up in our tap water too. Help us turn off the plastic tap and choose a more sustainable option for humans and the planet.
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-6 months. Do not leave any of the wood parts soaking in water, the wood will absorb water and it will cause the wood to swell and crack. Place in a dry spot after using it. If you find your brush head is not staying dry, dip it in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria.
