CASA AGAVE® by Earth and Daughter helps you replace plastic dish brushes in the kitchen with these sustainable dish brush swaps.
This removable-head dish brush has a Moso Bamboo(giant bamboo) handle and brush head, 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. Easy to hold and maneuver around dishes for the best clean.
Comes with one handle and one brush, but don't forget to add on more replacement heads to keep using your handle over and over again.
Replaces: plastic 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 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.
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 biodegradable and won't last forever like plastic!
The brush head is fully compostable so when it is 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.
Replacing the brush head: 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 bamboo and agave parts can be composted or buried in the garden, the silver metal parts can be recycled. The bristles are held in with small metal staples so you will need to fish those out of the compost or garden soil later.
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 Moso Bamboo we use is a fast-growing grass and is not the type eaten by giant pandas. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
Agave Fiber: CASA AGAVE™ agave fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber.
