Modular Aluminium Dish Brush
As soon as you pick up the Modular Dish Brush you know that it's going to last and last. A perfect plastic free alternative, it comes with a replaceable and sustainable head which keeps the dish brush feeling brand new.
This is by far the best dish brush I have ever used and well worth the investment. The high quality bushed aluminium stem feels great in the hand and the sustainable plant based brush heads are naturally antibacterial and so so easy to replace. The handle should last you a life time or more, if it does come to it's end of life, you can simply pop it in your metal recycling.
Stainless Steel Razor
A beautifully made stainless steel safety razor that is the perfect plastic free alternative that will look great in your bathroom as well as save you money. A blade should last around 6 shaves so a pack of blades keeps you covered for months.
One of the best plastic free swaps we've found. This safety razor will save you money because replacing the blades is so affordable. It will also give you one of the smoothest shaves ever and then there will be no turning back.
Reusable Tea Strainer
Cut out plastic tea bags with this versatile tea strainer which is perfect for teapots, mugs, cups and bottles. Most teabags contain some plastic meaning they won't degrade in compost or in soil.
This stainless steel reusable tea strainer makes it easy to go waste-free when drinking your tea without the guilt of throwing away plastic each time. It has a super fine mesh that will filter out the smallest tea leaves and handles to help avoid being scalded by the hot steam.
