Why we love it
Why use a plastic scourer that will scratch your lovely shiny pans when you can have a wooden scourer with plant-based bristles? Made from beechwood and cactus fibres, these are an excellent alternative to the usual green scratchy pads that take off the non stick on your pans.
Beechwood is a wonderful sustainable material. Put simply beech trees are replaceable and fast growing. Sisal is a natural fibre derived from a type of cactus called Agaves. The fleshy leaf of the plant is cut off and beaten with thick sticks so that the fibres are released. After drying the fibres in the sun, the natural colour develops which can range from green to yellowish-white.
Did you know most kitchen sponges and scourers are made of plastic? Which means unfortunately every time you wash up micro-plastics are getting into the ocean.
This hand held scourer is made from beechwood on the handle and Sisal fibre bristles. It’s 100% biodegradable and plastic-free so won’t release harmful micro plastics into the environment.
