Great for scrubbing vegetables, pots and pans, breadboards, utensils, bottles and appliances, or outdoors on barbeques or boats, these biodegradable utility brushes are handmade from waste products and natural materials in Sri Lanka. Rinsed and hung to dry, they'll last 3-4 months with normal daily use. Made using antibacterial coconut fibre, FSC certified timbers, rust-resistant galvanised wire and non-toxic sealers, at the end of their life they can be put into your compost bin to break down, leaving only the piece of wire to throw out.

Available individually or as a set of three (one of each - vegie brush (left), dish brush (centre) and bottle brush (right)).

A healthy choice - natural fibres are not made from chemical compounds found in man made fibres, many of which are petroleum based, and unlike synthetic fibres they do not contribute to micro-plastic fibres in our waters and food chains.
Biodegradable - vegetable fibres are natural so they can be put into your compost bin, where the micro- organisms in your compost eat the fibres.
Sustainable - natural vegetable fibres are carbon neutral, absorbing the same amount of carbon dioxide that they produce.
Ethical - all natural fibres are products of agriculture often found in developing countries. So by choosing them, particularly from Fair Trade producers, you are supporting developing countries and helping to fight rural poverty.
Renewable - natural fibres are a renewable resource. They are not a finite resource such as petroleum and can be sustainably grown.
