Message from the Maker:
Hi! My name is Wang Xiaopeng. I am one of the team members who helped make the dish brush and bottle cleaning brush. I am 35 years old and this is my sixth year working with the company. This product is developed with the concepts of environmental protection, economics, nature, and fashion. I’m an artisan, and I like to express my inner feelings through the production and processing of bamboo. This work makes me happy. I live in Ningbo with my lovely family. This work allows me to provide for my family, which makes me grateful. I hope that you will like it, and we will continue to improve the quality of our product. Thank you for your continued support and trust.
This brush was made at a factory in the Zhejiang Province. The minimum wage of this province is CNY 2100/month, which is around £246, but the artisans are paid above minimum wage at CNY 2700/month.
The factory follows the listed health and safety procedures:
The manufacturers purchase accident insurance to provide insurance guarantees for each employee.
The company has rules and regulations in place that require each employee to wear dust masks to ensure optimum health when working in dusty conditions.
The workshop director intermittently patrols to remind artisans of safety.
After using the bottle cleaner to clean bottles or jars, rinse the bristles to dislodge any food or grub stuck. Then dry the bristles with a towel and hang to dry, ready for it's next use.
We do not recommend putting in the dish washer to clean the bottle brush as it may damage the bottle brush.
When the bottle brush has reached the end of it's life, you can cut away the coconut bristles and handle then place it in the compost. And put the metal wire in the recycling. It's okay to put the metal wire in the recycling even if it has the coconut bristles as the heat in metal recycling will just burn anything other than the metal.
