We know how difficult it can be to tell how much of an impact what you are buying has on the environment, and what effect switching to a more sustainable product has, so we have found out and compiled all of this information for you below.
The ecoLiving Dustpan and Brush Set replaces dustpans and brushes made from plastic.
The handle is made from FSC Certified sustainable beechwood. The bristles are made from tampico fibres, a very robust fibre from the yellow leaf of the agave cactus, which grows in the highlands of northern Mexico. The pan is made from steel.
Most dustpans and brushes are made from plastic, and a lot aren't very long lasting. Even the bristles on most brushes are made from plastic. These bristles release plastic fibres over time, which can make their way into the environment. Combine that with how difficult these plastic pans and brushes are to recycle, and you can see why plastic dustpans and brushes just aren't a sustainable solution. Switching to a plastic free dustpan and brush solves these issues. The wooden handle and tampico bristles come from renewable, sustainable resources, and the steel pan is easily recycled. The Dustpan and Brush Set is also very well built, and with the right care, will last for generations.
The Dustpan and Brush Set is packaging free. The recyclable card tag is attached with natural, compostable string.
The Dustpan and Brush Set is incredibly well built and will last for a very long time if looked after. If you do need to dispose of it though, the handle and bristles can be composted at home (just remove the magnet first) and the pan can be recycled.
