WHY CHANGE TO A DISH BRUSH?
Do you know what the #1 source of germs is in your home? Most people don’t know this, but it’s your common disposable kitchen sponge. Scientists have found there are around 10 million bacteria per square inch of the typical disposable kitchen sponge. That is 200,000x more germs than a toilet seat! So you WANT to have a brush that is not only durable but bacteria resistant also.
Sure, the bacteria issue is a very good point, but what about the environment?
How often do you change your kitchen sponge – once, twice a week? Imagine that being repeated millions of times each week around the world. It’s a lot of waste, especially given that so many sponges are made from plastics.
There’s an added environmental danger with many synthetic sponges these days; often they are impregnated with chemicals such as Triclosan. Triclosan is an antibacterial and antifungal agent and is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency as being a pesticide.
Aside from increasing evidence linking triclosan to health problems, it is also believed to destroy fragile aquatic ecosystems; especially algae that other animals may depend on – either directly or indirectly.
As sewerage and wastewater treatment plants cannot remove triclosan and the compound remains stable for long periods of time; it’s posing an increasing problem in our waterways – it’s now one of the most common man-made chemicals found in U.S. streams.
