Plastic Free Kitchen | Simple Eco Swaps
Coconut fibre is the best choice for brushes as its naturally antibacterial so it won't get smelly or mouldy. There are some amazing scourers, dish, bottle & vege brushes to replace those plastic ones. You can use these knowing you won't be adding bits of micro plastic to the waterways while using these items or contributing to landfill at the end of the products life.
If you aren’t up for knitting you can buy a SPRUCE cloth made from cellulose blended with cotton, one cloth can replace up to 15 rolls of paper towels plus can last 9-12 months! These can break down in 5 weeks in a compost bin for eco friendly disposal.
And for those like the ease of buying pre made cleaning products refill your old containers at your local bulk shop. You can buy everything from Cleaning Spray to Dish Washing Powder! If your containers are a little worse for wear after lots of refills, grab an Amber Glass Spray Bottle or an Amber Glass Lotion pump bottle for your products, not only do they look good sitting on your bench top the glass will outlast the plastic bottles.
And remember don't go and throw out all your plastic products, slowly replace things as you need them and the earth will thank you for it.
