The CASA AGAVE™ brushes are an easy replacement for your plastic dishwashing and vegetable brushes in the kitchen and home.
With a Moso Bamboo or white teakwood handle and medium weight agave fiber, coconut or palmyra fiber bristles, these brushes can be used for dish washing, vegetable washing and even general cleaning around the house.
Replaces: Plastic dish and general cleaning brushes.
These work great for dish washing, scraping food off plates, and have a long sturdy handle. Because the bristles are on all sides of the brush head, this gets into cups, bowls and pots better than the replacement head brush. (Some people also use this style for general cleaning, it could be used as a brush for the toilet instead). Multipurpose.
Longevity: Each brush can be used for 1-3 months or longer depending on frequency of usage and proper storage. Make sure to not submerge or soak the wooden parts in water. Hang to dry or place in a dry spot after using it.
Why it matters: Plastic bristle scrub 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: Moso bamboo, known as the giant bamboo or timber bamboo, has been used for centuries to fashion buildings, flooring and culinary tools. The young shoots are often prepared into Asian dishes. The plant fiber bristles are made from agave fiber mixed with palmyra fiber. Lightly coated with non-toxic wood coating to reduce cracking and splitting. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
Agave Fiber: CASA AGAVE™ agave and palmyra fiber bristles are grown, harvested, sun-dried and processed in Mexico using traditional techniques to ensure a high quality and strong natural fiber. The coconut fiber is harvested from coconut processing waste in Sri Lanka.
