VEGGIE BRUSH | 100% BIODEGRADABLE | BAMBOO POT SCRUBBER
The Go Bamboo Veggie Brush is made from bamboo with bass fibre bristles - packaged with a recycled cardboard swing tag attached with a jute string.
This little powerhouse brush is an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing scrubbers and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home.
Replaces: Plastic dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck-on food.
Multi-purpose: The handy brush can also be used on vegetables that need a good scrub!
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
If you find your brush is not staying dry, dip the bristles in vinegar occasionally to help kill bacteria. The white teakwood is naturally antibacterial but the vinegar will help too.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work, then compost or bury in the garden or dispose of in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mould growth.
Storage and Care: To reduce cracking, keep the wood parts dry and do not soak or submerge them in water. Cracking is normal for wooden brushes if you tend to get the wooden parts very wet. You can oil your brushes to reduce the potential of cracking if you regularly submerge your dish brushes in water.
Place in a completely dry spot: Hang to dry or place in a completely dry spot after using it. Do not rest the brush on top of your solid dish soap between dishwashing sessions, the natural bristles will wick up excess water and cause the handle to crack.
Watch out for: Some companies have "sustainable" brushes that have plastic bristles. These handles are 100% Bamboo and the bristles are made out of bass Fibre, making this brush 100% biodegradable.
**Pair with the That Red House Dish Washing Chunky Block.
End of life: Once worn out, the wood and agave fibre parts can be composted or buried in the garden.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle scrub brushes shed tiny pieces of plastic called microplastics. 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.
