EcoCoconut produce 100% plastic free coconut products for everyday life. Their brushes are made from durable coir fibre, attached to a stainless steel wire. The handles on the brushes are made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified recycled Rubber tree's grown in a plantation and at the end of their life replanted. Both the products and the packaging are plastic free. 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.
