Natural scrub brush won't shed microplastics into waterways.
It can be a little heartbreaking to know that all the elbow grease poured over the years into scrubbing pots and pans crusted with food scraps probably shed microplastics into the waterways. Microplastics just come with the territory of a plastic scrub brush, a go-to cleaning tool in many a serious kitchen. But the good thing is that it’s never too late to make a change. And this bamboo scrub brush is a great way to make a change for the good. Its agave fiber bristles and bamboo handle are compostable, so this scrub brush will return to the earth, rather than lurk around for eternity like a plastic product.
