Choose Bamboo - Why our Dish Brush is Better

Have you met our adorable + compostable little Better Bristles bamboo + coconut dish brushes? Made from FSC certified bamboo + coconut, these sustainable scrubbers are more than just a chic addition to your after dinner clean-up routine. 

Why They’re Better:

  • Our dish brushes are made of 100% natural materials that break down in your compost, while plastic sponges sit in the landfill for 100's of years
  • The long bristles on our brushes are cleaner and harbour less bacteria because they don't hold water and bits of food, unlike moist kitchen sponges (which have been found to have more bacteria than your toilet or garbage can!)
  • Bamboo is a sustainable material that can be harvested without deforestation (see more below!)

Why our Customers Love the Better Bristles Bamboo Dish Brush:

You don't have to sacrifice performance for sustainability. Our dish brush holds up to your toughest pots and pans. Many of our customers even say that it works better than your average scrubber! The long and firm bristles are tough enough to get the job done, but won't scratch or wear down your dishes. Plus, they easily get into all the "tough to scrub" places for an extreme clean. Our Better Bristles fits perfectly into the palm of your hand, and looks cute on your countertop. It dries out fast in between washes, avoiding germs and buildup. Just d forget to replace it every 2-3 months! With 100% 5 star reviews, it's safe to say that our bamboo dish brushes are a definite fan-favourite.

What FSC Certified Really Means:

We often see sustainability certifications without stopping to ask what they really m. In case you didn't know, FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council. When we say that our dish brushes are made from FSC certified bamboo, it means t bamboo comes from responsibly managed forests. Certification protects bamboo forest ecosystems and helps fight climate change. The FSC prohibits illegal logging, forest degradation and deforestation in certified areas, so you can trust that the materials in our products aren't causing extra harm to the planet. The council works to protect animal habitats, indigenous peoples' rights, worker’s rights and other areas of significant environmental or cultural importance. All of this is instrumental in supporting our mission and commitment to #DoingBetter.

Why Bamboo:

Did you know that bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth? In some cases has been recorded to grow 3+ feet in a single day! The wonderful thing about bamboo is that it can be harvested annually without depletion or deterioration of soil. Bamboo is light in weight yet very durable, reducing the carbon footprint for shipping while still offering a long product lifespan. Bamboo is also naturally anti-bacterial, which helps keep your brush fresh for longer. It absorbs 2x more carbon dioxide than trees and produces 35% more oxygen, which is why it’s known to act as a carbon sink. When it comes to comparing compostable materials to plastics, it's important to note that natural materials are always superior because they will break down when exposed to oxygen and heat, whereas plastic sits in the landfill and eventually breaks down into microplastics. Plastics can get into our food streams, water systems, and just about everywhere else we don't want them to be!
