This sustainable dish brush from No Tox Life is an easy replacement for your plastic dish brushes in the kitchen and home. With a moso bamboo handle and medium weight agave fiber bristles, it is ideal for general dish washing.
Replaces: Plastic dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food.
Multi-purpose: The hand brush can also be used on vegetables that need a good scrub!
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-6 months. Do not leave any of the bamboo parts soaking in water, the bamboo will absorb water and it will cause the bamboo 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. The moso bamboo is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
The handle is moso bamboo and the bristles are made out of agave fiber, making this brush 100% compostable. Use with No Tox Life's Dish Washing Block.
End of life: Once worn out, the bamboo and agave 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: Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber mixed with palmyra fiber. Lightly coated with non-toxic wood coating to reduce cracking and splitting. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
Casa Agave™ agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
