Pot Scrubber/Dish Hand Brush
This sustainable dish brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dish brushes and sponges in the kitchen and home.
With a white teakwood handle and stiff agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing and scrubbing stuck on food. Can be used on non-stick pans, just be more gentle with it.
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months or longer. Do not leave any of the wood or bristle parts soaking in water, the natural materials will absorb water and it will cause the brush to swell and crack.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, then compost or bury in garden or dispose in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
Storage and Care: To reduce cracking, keep the wood parts dry and do not soak or submerge them in water. You can oil your brushes to reduce the potential of cracking if you regularly submerge your dish brushes in water. Never store your brush in a wet spot between uses, it will cause the brush to absorb excess water and crack.
End of life: Once worn out, the wood and plant fiber parts can be composted or buried in the garden.
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.
Sustainability: For the white teakwood handle, we do not use the species Teak that is endangered, we use a different species called White Teakwood that is very fast-growing (similar to bamboo) and even considered a weed in some countries because it grows so fast. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber and palmyra plant fiber.
