This pack of two biodegradable, multi-purpose scourers is ideal for all your household cleaning needs! Being non-scratch, the pads are suitable for non-stick frying pans; great on hard surfaces like the cooker hob or stove top, and safe for enamel sinks and baths. However, coconut fibre is not suitable for plastic surfaces, as some scratching may occur.
Made ethically in Sri Lanka from coconut fibre (or coir as it is more commonly known) which is held together by natural tapped tree rubber. Coir is a natural fibre extracted from between the hard internal shell of the coconut and the outer coat of the coconut. As well as being totally natural, the scourers are naturally antibacterial, free from toxic chemicals, recyclable and biodegradable.
Plastic free. Presented in a recyclable card sleeve detailing the eco credentials of the product.
Rinse after each use and store in a dry place. With this product you may notice some loose fibres as it becomes more heavily used and the fibres break away from the tree rubber but it will still be useable - just a little thinner!
Each scourer measures approximately 10cm wide x 12cm long x 0.5cm high.
Common cleaning products often use harsh chemicals to maintain antibacterial properties. The coconut fibre used in this product is naturally antibacterial and free from toxic chemicals, and the rubber used to hold the coconut fibre together is tapped from trees and is completely natural. It is also recyclable and biodegradable.
EcoCoconut use sustainably farmed coconut fibre to make this product. 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.
The natural rubber used is tapped directly from rubber trees.
