Your washing up brush gets a lot of use. After nearly every meal, you stand at the sink to wash a pile of dishes. The dish brush is a go-to item for scrubbing off baked-on foods, essential to your household cleaning kit.
Unfortunately, they’re usually made from a hard plastic with nylon bristles, quickly wearing out from daily use. The traditional brush must be thrown out every couple of months, adding to the mounting piles of plastic in landfill. Plus, you’re unwittingly releasing microplastics down the drain every time you do the dishes.
Instead, make the swap to this eco-friendly washing up brush, made from FSC® certified beechwood with Tampico Fibre bristles. Once you have finished with this item, simply place it into your home compost.
This brush head is replaceable, simply release the metal clip. You can find replacement heads by clicking here.
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 dish brush, and rinse them in cold water.
