This coconut cleaning kit from EcoCoconut is completely plastic-free. The set contains a dish brush, a bottle brush and two coconut scourers for some eco-friendly cleaning!
The cleaning products are made with sustainable coconut fibre. Coconut fibre, or coir as it is more commonly known, is a natural fibre extracted from between the hard internal shell of the coconut and the outer coat of the coconut. It is a byproduct of the coconut harvesting process, and is considered a renewable and sustainable product since new crops of coconuts can be regrown repeatedly on the same trees.
Coir's water resistant qualities makes it an ideal cleaning material that can be paired with any detergent or cleaning agent on any given surface or location. It cuts through tough grease, is naturally antibacterial and is safe on non stick surfaces.
The coconut fibres of the brushes is attached to a stainless steel wire. The handles on the brushes are made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified recycled rubber trees grown in a plantation. At the end of their life the trees are replanted.
Rinse the products with water after each use and store in a dry place. On first few uses you may notice some loose fibres or ‘dust’ but these will reduce over time.
