Bamboo Dish Brush Head
Bamboo Replacement Dish Brush Head
Replacing the brush head: The first time, it is a little stiff to bend the wires and you may need to use a pair of pliers to loosen it. (use caution). The subsequent times, you can use strong fingers to squeeze the wires together, loosen the metal grip, and pop off the brush head. Just slide a new brush head on and replace the metal grip that holds it tight.
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.
Sustainability: The handle and replacement head are made of Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, a fast-growing grass that has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. This type of bamboo is not the same species that is eaten by giant pandas. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
