Pin Brush: Brushes
Trying to rid plastic of one's life... it may be hardest in the bathroom! But alas, I've found a sustainable, wooden hair brush by none other than the Body Shop. Yes, there is a tiny bit of the P word at the base, but that is for cushion, so a certain amount of "comfort" is maintained. FYI, what makes wood sustainable? Well, it's certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). So what does this mean? A product uses (and can be tracked back to) material from an FSC-certified forest ---> this is a forest that is itself certified by many standards on being sustainable and maintains a level of biodiversity that otherwise would be diminished. Does this mean that buying FSC is a mean to an end? Nope. Not to get into all the facts, but being FSC-certified definately helps out larger parcel owners compared to smaller forests owners. In addition, buying doesn't mean that deforestation isn't going to occur in the rainforests, as most of the certified forests are northern-hemisphere heavy.
