Wild & Stone’s pot scrubbing brush fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, helping you clean the hard of reach areas of pots and pans. The Tampico Fibre bristles are also particularly well suited for stainless steel and cast-iron cookware.
Your kitchen sponge gets a lot of use. But these items are reusable, so that would mean they don’t have a big impact on the environment, right?
Well, your average kitchen sponge is actually made of petroleum-based polyurethane, essentially meaning it’s made from fossil fuels, which creates a massive environmental footprint before it hits the supermarket shelf.
If that wasn’t bad enough, the sponges sold with the promise of antibacterial benefits are loaded with toxic chemicals, that wash down the drain and wreak havoc on marine life.
A sponge is really dirty, too, studies have found that the average kitchen sponge holds more bacteria than typically found in the toilet.
Make the swap to this eco-friendly pot brush, made from FSC® certified beechwood with Tampico Fibre bristles. Once you have finished with this item, simply place it into your home compost.
What are Tampico Fibre bristles?
The Tampico Fibre comes from a type of cactus called Agave Lechuguilla. It only grows naturally in one region of Mexico.
This fibre is strong and durable, and its tiny hooks give it a slightly abrasive quality that comes from nature. It soaks up 65% more water than plastic bristles, and it doesn't lose its shape or texture over time, so it's perfect for a dish brush.
What is FSC® 100% Certified Beechwood?
FSC® is a globally recognised certification scheme. This means that the wood used in this product is certified against the principles and criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council®, including values such as maintaining the forest’s ecosystem, upholding indigenous people’s rights of land ownership, and a commitment to maintain or enhance the forests used.
What is the most eco-friendly way to wash dishes?
Hand washing your dishes is typically more environmentally friendly than using a dishwasher. The most effective and eco-friendly way to wash your dishes is to soak them in hot water, scrub them with a wooden pot brush, and rinse them in cold water.
