Dish Brush with Extra Long Handle
This sustainable swap helps you replace plastic dish brushes in the kitchen!
This dish brush has a moso bamboo handle and brush head, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles.
Replaces: plastic handled dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food.
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months or longer depending on frequency of usage and proper storage. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
Using with our dish washing block: Keep in mind that when using our dish washing block, a soft sponge on most dishes is ideal for best longevity. If you use a hard bristle brush on all dishes, you will wear down the dish block faster than a sponge and might dig a hole in the middle of the block.
End of life: Once worn out, the wood and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle 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.
