Casa Agave™ Bamboo Dish Brush
Notox Life’s Casa Agave™ sustainable dish brush swap helps you replace plastic dish brushes in the kitchen!
This removable-head dish brush is made with with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. It is held together with silver metal wire, and includes a small wire loop at the end for hanging dry.
Replaces plastic handled dish brushes. Can be used to wash general dishes as well as to loosen stuck on food.
Longevity: Each brush head 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.
Continue using this brush until the bristles no longer work or the brush head falls apart, then compost or bury in garden or dispose in a green waste bin. Stop using the brush and replace it if you see any mold growth.
Storage and Care: To reduce cracking, keep the bamboo parts dry and do not soak or submerge them in water. Cracking is normal for brushes over time. They are biodegradeable and won't last forever like plastic!
The brush head is fully replaceable so when it's worn out, slide it out from the metal wire and replace the head. Keep reusing the handle until it is worn out. Don't apply undue pressure on the handle or it will break.
End of life: Once worn out, the bamboo and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled.
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 Moso bamboo in our brushes and soap shelf is harvested in Japan, China, Vietnam and Taiwan, it is a bamboo type that grows extremely fast and is used for flooring and furniture. Moso bamboo is not the type of bamboo that giant pandas eat and does not affect their habitats.
