Why use a plastic scourer that will scratch your lovely shiny pans when you can have a wooden scourer with plant-based bristles? Made from beechwood and cactus fibres, these are an excellent alternative to the usual green scratchy pads that take off the non-stick on your pans.
Beechwood is a wonderful sustainable material. Put simply beech trees are replaceable and fast-growing. Sisal is a natural fibre derived from a type of cactus called Agaves. The fleshy leaf of the plant is cut off and beaten with thick sticks so that the fibres are released. After drying the fibres in the sun, the natural colour develops which can range from green to yellowish-white.
Materials & Care:
Bristles are made from Sisal Cactus
Handle is made from Beech

About The Brand
In mid-2018 we (Anya, Amy, Becky and Gabriela - a group of friends working together in Leeds) were talking about how we all felt similarly frustrated by the growing plastic crisis. We’d all been feeling a growing plastic anxiety, and then high-profile documentary Blue Planet came out. The more we thought about it, the more plastic we could see everywhere. It was smothering, and we felt motivated for change. We realised that we wanted to be part of the solution, not the problem and needed to start now.
We know that going plastic free isn't always easy and we're not perfect! We believe its about the small switches we can made to reduce our impact on the planet. We started looking for ways to reduce our plastic use and cut everyday single-use household plastics out of our lives, but found we struggled to find the right products. Either the plastic-free alternatives we looked for didn’t exist, or they weren’t truly plastic-free, biodegradable or compostable. With all the lack of choice and misinformation around, we realised that if we found it hard work, other people probably did too. Luckily in June 2018 we had the opportunity to combine our passion with our individual skills. Eco Vibe was born.
Why Lucy Loves
This scourer is a great design and is gentle on your pots and pans. I love that it is completely plastic free which means no microplastics will be released into the environment when in use. It is hard wearing and lasts for months. The bristles are made from beechwood and cactus fibres so make a great alternative to the green plastic scourer's you see in the supermarkets wrapped in plastic packaging.
