Why We Chose Them | Iris Hantverk creates beautiful, sustainable options for household brushes and other goods. They employ visually impaired craftsmen to produce wooden brushes for use in the kitchen, bathroom, and the rest of the home. So many household items are made of plastic, and inevitably end up in landfills once they have reached the end of their life. Iris Hantverk’s natural approach means that their brushes can be easily dismantled, and their materials recycled or biodegraded after their long life of use. This reduces waste and keeps plastic trash out of our Oceans!
I've purchased these a few times. A great way to reduce the plastic in our lives. A good tip is to always dry off the handle when you are finished as leaving them wet will cause them to break down before you are done with them. I didn't give it 5 stars because the bristles do tend to fall out while brushing your teeth (every once in a while). I believe that minor inconvenience is worth it. I love that they are compostable.
