Sustainability and Effectiveness: The Ultimate Sand Removal Brush

Creating a sustainable and ethical product

As a company, commitment to implementing sustainable and ethical practices wherever we can, our journey to create the ultimate sand removal brush has been an exciting one.

When we delved into the design of our humble little brush, we were guided by our commitment to protecting our environment. Our aim was to use the most sustainable materials possible.

The result is a beach Sand Brush that not only stands out for being eco-conscious it also boasts exceptional functionality, brushing sand from adults, kids, pets, surfboards, beach gear, even car upholstery, carpet and more!

Sustainable Materials

The brush is crafted from hard-wearing sustainably sourced rubberwood and features a beautiful combination of coconut husk and jute fiber bristles. These natural plant fibers are not only renewable but also biodegradable.
