Moso bamboo brush head, with stiff agave fiber (vegan) plant bristles. New design! Still fits our earlier design handle.
Longevity: Each brush head can be used for several 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 biodegradeable and won't last forever like plastic!
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.
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.
Sustainability: The Moso Bamboo used is a fast-growing grass and is not the type eaten by giant pandas. FSC certified by TÜV SÜD Czech, Prague.
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 remove them.
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.
