HOW TO GET STARTED

Brooms are ultimately consumable. With continued use, they will wear out. Better to use an all-natural broom that won't generate microplastics than one that is simply a stop away from landfills and ultimately our water supply.

EMBRACE

  1. Fully compostable and made of all-natural materials
  2. Can last many years with proper care
  3. Natural fiber bristles are surprisingly as effective as synthetic/plastic bristles
  4. A joy to use and visually more appealing than a plastic broom

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Cannot be recycled, you're just a temporary stop until the landfill
  2. Become softer and less effective with use
  3. Will typically last about 2 years with regular use
  4. Often holds onto odors
