A professional quality hair brush made from bamboo - including the handle and bristles.

Bamboo, a natural cellulose fibre, is biodegradable, environmentally sustainable and does not pollute the environment. Technically considered a member of the grass family, bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth, and is incredibly abundant. It regenerates itself prolifically with minimal water and without the need for harmful pesticides - in fact harvesting and using the bamboo helps to control unwanted spread into agricultural and natural forest areas.

Bamboo is a 100% natural renewable resource that grows back within a few months of harvesting and reaches full size in 3 years. The bamboo in these brushes is farmed, without the use of pesticides or fertilizers, by small farmers in China.

Available in two sizes:
Small:
17 x 5 cm
Ideal for keeping in your handbag or in the glove box of the car.

Large: 22 x 6.5 cm
Great for general use, styling and detangling.

  • Anti-static
  • Lightweight
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Ergonomic handle

Commendations

The New Internationalist magazine is the most brilliant advocate on behalf of the developing world. It's a source of information; it's a source of reassurance on ideas; and it has an enormous integrity.

Glenys Kinnock - Member of the European Parliament

The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.

Peter Davis - OXFAM campaigner - speaking about the benefits of New Internationalist's independence

New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the stories of people who are working to build a better planet.

Utne Reader - nominations for the 2011 award for Best International Coverage

I have subscribed to New Internationalist for over 25 years, and can vouch for its fearless, high quality reporting of the real issues all over the world. And lovely items in their shop, too!
