Wooden sandalwood combs feel so much better in the hand. Their weight and warmth feel much more substantial than plastic combs. Wooden combs can have a considerable lifespan if treated properly and with care. These combs feel wonderful in the hand and are a joy to use.

EMBRACE

Over 100 years ago Cyanide (a poison) was used to leach gold out of fine rocks in the mining process. This cyanide still contaminates the soil and groundwater in the American West. Industrial-scale mining has left a long legacy. Source: https://www.bodie.com/learning/the-cyanide-leaching-process/. Source: https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1990-05-27-mn-159-story.htmlS

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

We just assume plastic is the only option for household items like combs. The truth is that quality combs are now made out of a range of materials from wood, metal, horn, and shell. These non-plastic options are typically non-static and have an impressive lifespan. They also do not contribute to plastic waste.
