Bamboo pot scrapers are an essential tools in every kitchen. They're so useful for removing stubborn foods and substances without scratching your cooking surface.

Like many of Ecoternative's suppliers, Bambu is a certified B-corporation, an accreditation given to highly ethical + sustainable businesses.
Traditional scouring pads are often made with a toxic chemicals and pesticides, including triclosan, which can cause health issues and destroys fragile ecosystems. It's an anti-bacterial agent that is classified as highly toxic to aquatic organisms such as algae and fish.
In addition, plastic microfibers regularly fray from scouring pads and enter our oceans and water systems. More than you would think, it’s one of the reasons humans consume a credit card worth of plastic every week, and why there are 500x more microplastics in the ocean than stars in the galaxy.
Conventional scouring pads are also just made out of plastic, meaning they are petroleum based. 12 million barrels of oil are used every year to create plastic products like these.
