After being inspired by great blogs such as My Plastic-Free Life and Plastic Manners, I decided to try to avoid plastic as much as possible. I do this partly by trying not to buy things that I don’t need. But when I need something, I do my best to try to find plastic-free alternatives. That’s why I love the Life Without Plastic store.
We just moved into a new house with two extra bathrooms so I found myself in need of new toilet brushes. I was convinced that I would never find a plastic-free alternative. So I started researching ways to clean toilets without a special toilet brush. There weren’t very many options that didn’t involve sticking my hands in the bowl or using toxic cleaners.
But then I found a great site called Life Without Plastic. Not only do they have plastic-free toilet brushes but they also have a ton of other plastic-free products for home, bath, food storage, water storage and more.
The toilet brush I bought is constructed from untreated sustainably harvested beechwood with natural fiber bristles from the Agave tree. It comes with a beechwood stand (that can be mounted on a wall) and a sweet little ceramic plate to collect water. It is manufactured by a small family company in Germany. Not only is the brush completely plastic-free but it is absolutely beautiful (which is usually pretty hard to say about a toilet brush). And of course it does a great job cleaning toilets.
