A non-plastic toilet brush was one of the first products we looked for when we began Life Without Plastic. A toilet brush is an easily disposable item that is not usually recyclable and ends up in landfills, waterways or the oceans. We finally found the ideal non-plastic, completely natural - and ultimately compostable - toilet brush. This lovely natural toilet brush has a classic, old worldish design with soft pig bristles mounted on a sustainably harvested untreated beechwood handle and base. This brush is also available with a matching wooden stand and terra cotta ceramic drip dish. It may sound strange to describe a toilet brush set as "cozy", but that is the look of this rustic brush and stand nestled beside your toilet. The brush should not smell or become moldy if it is allowed to air dry completely between uses. Sustainably made in Germany by a dynamic, ethical family business committed to creating the highest quality products from natural renewable materials using old world techniques and modern designs and technology. We have visited them and their facilities in Germany and were extremely impressed.
