Scrub Cleaner & Greener with an Eco Dish Brush

Whether you’re scrubbing dishes or cleaning surfaces, choosing an eco dish brush contributes to a cleaner, greener planet! Read on to find out why and where to find the best eco friendly dish brush to suit your purpose.

Why choose an eco dish brush?

Eco friendly dish brushes offer numerous benefits, both for the environment and your home:

Made from environmentally friendly materials

Eco friendly dish brushes are made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, wood, or natural plant-based fibres. By choosing brushes made from these materials, you are helping to reduce plastic pollution and decrease our reliance on non-renewable resources. 

Biodegradable and compostable 

Many eco dish brushes are designed to be biodegradable and compostable, meaning when they reach the end of their life, they break down without harming the environment. 

Durable and long lasting

An eco dish brush is designed for longevity, so they are also very durable. A durable dish brush means fewer replacements, saving you money and minimising waste. 


Wooden dish brushes house fewer bacteria than sponges because they have fewer spaces for bacteria to hid in. They also dry quicker making them less habitable for bacteria. A wooden dish brush that uses metal, wood and plant fibres can be composted and recycled when it reaches the end of its life. 

No microplastics

Unlike plastic dish brushes, an eco friendly dish brush does not release microplastics into the water system or environment.
