Our vegan washing up scraper is made using the outside of the coconut shell which is called the husk. Being 100% natural the scraper is non toxic and completely biodegradable meaning you can clean your pans with complete confidence that no microplastics or chemicals are being released down the drain!
LoofCo use coconut coir and husks that are waste products from food and oil production, which normally would be burned and wasted!
The natural scraper also has a handy cotton string so you can hang it to dry after each use.
LoofCo use ethical, fair trade business practices and sustainable sources to produce their cleaning accessories. This company values workers rights who support and gives work to local villagers in rural areas.
These biodegradable washing up scrapers are such a simple way to reduce plastic and waste in your kitchen! I love mentioning these to friends because they work even better than plastic scourers plus they are so much kinder on the environment.
How To Use:
Make sure to rinse and hang dry using the string to keep your scraper fresh between uses.
Occasionally soak in hot water and natural dish soap (you can use your soapnut liquid detergent for this) and air dry.
When the bristle-like edge starts to fray just trim with some scissors right back to the solid edge and continue using.
Our natural scraper will last you ages but when the time finally comes to replace it you can just pop it in your compost, it is 100% biodegradable.
The packaging is made from card and can be recycled.

Why Choose Natural
Since learning so much about zero waste and plastic free living I have come to know how harmful plastic and microplastic can be to not only the environment and wildlife but to our health as well!
Natural materials will biodegrade and cause no harm when doing so, plastic and synthetic materials however will release chemicals and microplastics which are a major contributor to sea pollution where marine life actually ingests them!
This is why I now always choose natural fibres and materials that are sustainable, biodegradable meaning they are so much better for the environment. It makes such a difference but is such a simple change.
LoofCo are a unique brand who make a range of natural handmade household and body cleaning accessories. All of their products are certified vegan, biodegradable and plastic free! They use a mixture of natural fibres from loofah plants and coconuts to create their amazing products hence the name.
This company produces their plastic free cleaning accessories in Sri Lanka and Egypt where they ensure ethical and eco-friendly business practices while supporting traditional crops and skills with fair wages. It is top priority for LoofCo that their products and materials are fairly sourced where the farmers and production workers are treated fairly. LoofCo do not use Monkeys to harvest any of their coconuts in Sri Lanka (sadly some coconut farmers do).
Loofah and coconut plants have been used in a such a way for generations, why use plastic when you can have a natural plastic free alternative! LoofCo make long lasting dish brushes, washing up pads, body loofahs and more all of which are non-toxic, eco-friendly and biodegradable. A far more sustainable option than the synthetic and plastic sponges and dish brushes, these are ideal for zero waste living.
